Once my goal of only spending $10 a month on clothing was over, I kind of went a little nuts at Salvation Army. I mean, when the typical person thinks of going nuts while shopping, he or she might think about spending hundreds of dollars. I think of spending $20. Yeah… there is a little bit of a difference…
I ended up finding some great pieces for my wardrobe and a couple of pieces to try some Pinterest clothing projects I had tagged for some DIY posts.
