I like to shop at vintage stores, you can find some great deals and very unique clothing. I also like stores like Kohl's and JC Penney because they have low prices but everything is organized like a big department store. Marshall's and Ross can be good too, but require much more work sifting through crap to find that one great item. If you want to go even cheaper, check out thrift stores. You can find great stuff for just a couple bucks, but this is really hit or miss... :)

Learning to make your own clothes is a great way to save money.
If you don't spend money on this you can do yourself, if you don't eat out, if you don't hire out but fix it yourself, if you grow your own food, you can live cheaply. I live on about $2000 (that's 2 thousand) dollars per year. I make way more than that, so the rest I put into savings.

My friend swears by the Goodwill stores. At first I thought it wasn’t a good idea, but when I saw here piecing together some very nice outfits along with the shoes and jewelry I was convinced.
