I’m Broke and Out of Style
School’s coming up. And I want new clothes, but I don’t have much money. My parents only give me $5 bucks a week. And I only have a month until school, and $20 bucks won’t get me anything cool and new. Help! ….. Broke and Out of Style
Dear Broke and Out of Style,
While, first of all, do you NEED clothes? Is that something you really NEED? If so, then I recommend going to a consignment shop, a resale shop or one of the many thrift stores. They will most likely have something that will work for you. And even though they are not new, they are new to you, right? And if you still think you NEED new clothes, try talking to your parents about how you can work to earn some more money. And if none of that works, try going through your things to fine some items that work together to give a new look. Instead of buying new things, change up what you have.
