I love thrift stores. At first, I did NOT want to wear clothes that used to belong to other people. Once I tried Plato's Closet, I was hooked. They have a lot of name-brand clothes, like Hollister and Aeropostale. I go shopping at Plato's almost every weekend with my friends and it's GREAT!!!

It's true, thrift stores can be really incredible. You can get half a dozen pairs of slightly used jeans for the price of one pair of new ones! Places like Goodwill take clothes you donate, so they can sell them super cheap.
Also, garage sales are great and can be even cheaper than gift stores! Money is a little tight, although not too tight, in my family as well and my awesome grandma buys about 90% of my clothes at garage sales. She even scored a pair of Levi's for me once for just a few bucks!
I know this seems super dorky, but you can make your own clothes in the same style as popular ones if you have a sewing machine, fabric, and thread. You won't be paying the store for the labor, profit, or advertising! There are also screenprinting kits available for making cute designs on T-shirts (just don't copy other people's designs exactly, as this might get you into trouble). Who knows, you could even start your own store someday!

Flavor: This fruity combo of two all-time best-selling flavors makes a delightfully sweet treat.
Fab Fact: In 2001, Lip Smacker blended two of its best-selling glosses.
