Cheap basic back to school supplies

back to school

Hi, my name is Allison and I’m addicted to school supplies.  I’m not even going to try and repent, there’s nothing forbidden about my love.  Especially when it comes to the cheap basic back to school supplies all over store shelves right now. Aren’t these pencils pretty?  I can’t even handle it. All the back to school supply sales at the end of summer are my favorite, in an I-totally-have-a-problem kind of way, but I’ve found a way to make…

cheap idea for a family holiday card

family holiday cards

I’m feeling extra tight with cash this year, but I really didn’t want to cut holiday cards out of the budget entirely. If there’s one time of the year I enjoy picking up the mail, it’s the holidays.  Almost all human contact has been lost in the world, but personalized holiday cards remain. I really want to keep this tradition alive, so I decided to go the cheap route.  I turned my favorite family photo from the year into a…

cute cheap earrings

cute cheap earring

I’m a connoisseur of all things cheap, especially jewelry.  I own a few key pieces of expensive jewelry, namely my wedding ring, but other than that I sort of don’t see the point. I’m probably wrong, but I buy gobs of cheap stuff wherever I can find it. These earrings happen to be from Forever 21, one of my favorite cheap jewelry haunts.  They were precisely $2.80, which is a lot less than most things in life. I’ve owned these…

cheap ballet flats for women

cute ballet flats

The other night I was at the mall with Precocious, something that happens so rarely it just felt really weird to type it.  I mean, we never ever go to the mall together unless we’re headed to a movie as a family.  It was actually a really nice, belated birthday present for my now 11-year-old tween: dinner and shopping without the boys. After we’d shopped around for a while we headed to a shoe store *just to browse*.  Those two…

Cheap Thanksgiving Decor.

Halloween happened in the blink of an eye and it’s onto Thanksgiving now.  It’s one of those sort of ambiguous holidays, decorating wise.  How much more can you really do with pumpkins?

If you have a few extra pumpkins from Halloween lying around, this craft is for you.  Pumpkins are practically a dime a dozen around…

cheap plates and bowls

dinnerware sets

I’m notoriously cheap.  Stingy.  Tight with my money.  Whatever you want to call it, it’s what I am.  I grew up pretty poor {sorry mom, we were poor, it’s true} and I just can’t seem to spend too much on inconsequential things. Let me amend that.  I have been known to buy dollar store makeup, but I don’t beat myself up for spending $16 on eyeshadow at M.A.C. so I suppose it’s selective thriftiness. Anyway, expensive dinnerware just doesn’t appeal…

How To Buy A Cheapish Designer Purse

see by chloe

When I was in New York last month at BlogHer, I passed through the expo hall {where all the sponsors of the conference have booths to show their wares} and spent some time at the eBay booth. You see, back in the day I sold a lot of stuff on eBay to make ends meet and earn a little Disneyland cash on the side.  I sold fashion stuff.  Old clothes I was recycling for cuter stuff, things from around the…
