(New Youtube video at the end of post)
This year I’m really focusing on a few things, but the main one is traveling. I’ve been wanting to travel more but never actually did it and the main cause for that has always been money. This year I promised myself that I no longer wanted to be that person always talking about it but never actually doing it. I strongly believe that if you want something, you will work hard towards that one thing and will not make any excuses and although I am fully aware that money is a huge factor, there are ways around it. As I’m still trying to figure those ways around it, I started with the first basic steps that anyone can do. I started cutting down cost on a lot of things and figuring a plan to work around my needs and wants. I realized that I’m spending most of my money on food and clothes, not a shocker, but if I want to make this happen I have to find a way to cut down on those cost. In this video I’m talking about 3 things I’ve been doing in order to stay within budget and a challenge I created for myself. I challenge you to start budgeting yourself more and try finding outfits for under $20, and yes it’s totally doable and in this video I show an entire outfit I got at Walmart for under $20. I purchased two necklaces to really dress up this look, although it barely needed and they were each $5. The dress itself was only $10, such a steal and I promise you I was not looking for clothes in Walmart, but after this, you will find me there shopping more often.
