Honestly, I don't even want to talk about how much money I've been spending lately. For some naive reason, I thought I'd be saving my funds while staying at home, but that certainly has not been the case. Postmating food, ordering décor for my apartment, and renting movie after movie has not put my bank account in the best position.
So it probably comes as no surprise that I’ve been trying to take it easy with my shopping budget, hitting up places like Forever 21, where I know I won’t have to spend an entire paycheck for a few solid basics. I’m telling you, I’ve stocked my cart with everything from denim and cardigans to booties, all with under-$35 price tags. Keep scrolling to see for yourself.
