The following post came out quite spontaneously as I bumped into a few items that were very reasonably priced. Isn't it great to find items you love that happen to suit your pocket?
Note: I haven't been paid by any of these companies to publish this post.
Something for summer: When I opened 80's Purple's page, I was delighted by the shades I saw and even more so when I checked their prices. Not all the frames are cheap, but the following ones, which happen to be my favorites, range from $10 to $12.
Something crafty: I've seen lots of online stores which are selling scalloped heart cut-outs. I actually bought a batch myself to send to a person in Argentina. I knew there was not much science behind those cardboard hearts; they were made with a craft punch. Well, that punch happens to be available at Martha Stewart's store for $24.50; not exactly a bargain, but if you consider it will last for a long time and will let you make probably thousands of scalloped hearts ... I don't know, sounds like a great deal to me!
Something to give away: It stresses me out to think I have to buy a present to someone when I'm flat broke. And don't let me get started on massive gifts such as on, erm, Christmas? Are we on the same page? Well, I realized that if you start preparing yourself ahead of time, it doesn't have to be stressful at all. I've seen many bloggers who prepared special boxes with inexpensive objects. I love the idea of putting together a present that doesn't break my piggy bank (ha! As if I had one!) and is creative and unique. I mean, don't we all love to get a little something that was made especially for us and shows the person behind it put his/her heart on it? ;) That's what I'm talking about!
Another birthday in a box
Something to get discounts on Etsy: If you register on Heartsy, you'll get lots of great deals to purchase on Etsy; it's like a Groupon for Etsy. To be quite honest, I cancelled my account there because I was never interested in the items they offered, but that was a year ago.
Something vintage: As you already know Ebay is a great source of vintage clothes and objects. You obviously have to check if the listed items are actually vintage and in good condition, but you can find amazing deals if you take your time and have the patience to bid. Hellhound Vintage is one of my most frequently visited online stores. These 3 dresses are $9.99 this moment (well, not now, but when I wrote this post).
Another online store I recommend is Pulp Vintage; especially because if you subscribe to their newsletter, you get discount codes that sometimes make a substantial difference in the final price. By the way, I'm kind of curious to try that black eye make up on pic 1, hehe.
Something to organize your shoes: Can't afford to buy a cool shoe rack? Well, you don't need to! Just grab a few hangers and tweezers and you're all set ;). Here's the tutorial.
Something you don't need but would probably like to have: Fred Flare has all sorts of novelties. The camera, for instance, is $4.99 and the toast stamper, $1.99.
Something to revamp your tees: This package of Instant Iron-ons brings 60 different decals and it costs $4.99.
Something for the kids' bedroom: Or maybe a party? 4 simple and inexpensive elements will let you make these whimsical cloud lights ;). I found this tutorial on Wedding High.
Something sweet: Not only are these treats cheap, but also low-calorie. You can find the directions to make these yogurt coated strawberries and yogurt drops right here.
Hope you're making plans for the weekend! ;D
