Our Economy... Blah, Blah, Blah

As you all know our economy stinks... and we have no money.
Like many families, we are not going to spend all of our money on clothes, shoes, and accessories like we used to.
So... that means no more expensive cashmere sweaters from J.Crew or Louis Vuttion purses.
How about a few shopping tips for the budget conscience teen.
  1. If you really want something, wait for it to go on sale
  2. Try shopping at Thrift Stores, you will not believe what you can find. Remember my awesome Converse shoes?
  3. Shop at discount stores like Marshalls or T.J. Maxx
  4. Outlet shopping, for example Legends in Kansas, has great deals
  5. Look for coupons of online specials

Did you know that 28 American Eagle Outfitters stores will be closing and a shocking 60 Abercombie and Fitch stores will be closing in the U.S.? I am not sure how this will effect Kansas City stores yet. But, it's sad to know that a lot of great stores aren't surviving the poor economy.
