You're on an entry-level salary. Congrats! You qualify as an adult who has a real job that pays real money. The only problem? Clothes aren't quite adequately factored into that budget you made for yourself. We hear you — but we also know you've probably held onto that one white T-shirt for so long that it can't be worn one more time without falling apart. So, to put a spring in your warm-weather wardrobe and still keep you on track to hit that savings goal, we've gathered the essentials you need this season, all on an entry-level budget.
And, thanks to Parcel's new budget calculator (our favorite service for organizing our online shopping), if you're not sure how much to spend or what to buy, you can let the site do the work (read: calculations) for you. All you have to do is sign up if you haven't already, create a new Parcel, select the "Guided" option, and follow the steps on the screen. And to get you started on your budget-conscious shopping spree, you can cherry-pick a few favorite pieces ahead until you tally up to your total, even if it isn't even into triple-digit territory. Not bad for an entire wardrobe revamp, right?
Yes, keeping up with the changing seasons can stress out your closet as well as your wallet. But with the must-haves ahead, you'll be able to feel good about what you and your bank account look like. Click on to shop away, without any buyer's remorse.
