Amid this economic crisis in which we are all finding ourselves, I thought I’d begin an installment on how to live in these turbulent times without having to sacrafice a WITs so well earned lifestyle. Enjoy and please feel free to share other ideas on how to pinch pennies without compromising chicness.
Pack your lunch
If you added up all you spend on meals out a week, you’d probably feel a little sick. At least I do when I realize what I spent on carbs instead of clothing- damn. So I’m hereby claiming (yet again, blast!) an ode to bringing my lunch to work and not spending my precious dollars on unhealthy and frankly, never that good, food.
Dry Clean with Caution
“Dry Clean Only” can sometimes be a bit over-dramatic if you ask me. This is why I always make sure what I choose to dry clean is utterly necessary. Hand washing is a completely do-able option and takes just as much time. The next time you’re setting aside what needs to be hiked up to your local corner cleaner, take a look at the tags again and decide what absolutely, positively must be put in the hands of an expert.
