Thrifty Thursdays

I loves clothes and shopping. Know who doesn’t? My bank account.You may have limited means in the financial department, but there’s no excuse to let your wardrobe reflect that. It just means you have to get creative and wander off the beaten trail.  Each Thursday I’ll feature a few great little numbers from some unlikely sources with every piece under $50 (and much, much less). This week’s finds are from the Haus of Kmart. Oh and they’re all less than $20 a pop.

shirt dress on sale $18.74

rt. 66 heart ring: $2.99

tunic top: $18.74

jaclyn smith bracelet: $15.00

Do you have any unexpected fashion sources? I’d love to know about them!


No Money, Mo’ Problems

this guy's a mind reader

Living on a strict ramen noodle diet? Are you on a first-name basis with employees at the neighborhood blood plasma center? When people on campus talk about the day that will live in infamy, are they referring to your legendary 2010 meltdown at the ATM? If so, you’ve come to the right place.

Okay perhaps I’m being a bit over-dramatic.

College is expensive. There is no getting around that. So if you can actually relate to the first paragraph or simply wish to stretch your dollar a little further, the Economic Academic is here to help. It’s my goal through this blog to aid cash-strapped coeds in their quest to find the best in fun, fashion and food all while on a shoe-string budget.
