Are you so broke that even a trip to the mall seems expensive? Does your diet consist of tap water and Cup-A-Soup? Do you wash your clothes in the shower because you have no quarters to use in the laundromat? If you answered yes to all of these, then chances are, you’re on a tight budget. Fortunately, you don’t have to sacrifice style just because you’re sort of broke. So here are some thrifty hacks that can make you look stylish without breaking your piggy bank.
Rub Away Deodorant Stains
If you’re constantly ruining your dress or your shirt with those unsightly white deodorant stains, don’t fret. There’s a solution that’s as easy as rubbing two sticks together, except you won’t be using sticks. You’ll just rub the fabric together and the stain will vanish like magic. If the marks are in a hard-to-reach spot, grab a separate piece of clothing to get the job done!
Waterproof Your Shoes
You know those pesky puddles of water have the power to ruin your shoes. To protect the fabric, use beeswax as a lubricating compound. You never know when you could accidentally step into a puddle of who knows what.
Rock The J. Crew-Style
You don’t have to buy J. Crew clothes to adopt their style. It’s actually as easy as rolling up your sleeves. Just follow these four easy steps and voila! Your exposed cuffs will have you sporting a stylish J.Crew style. Prepare for heads to turn as you walk down the street.
Never Get Stuck Again
Did you know that a graphite pencil can act as a lubricant for your zipper? Now, how many times have you tried zipping up your jeans or a jacket that you haven’t worn in ages and the zipper gets stuck? Next time that happens, just rub a graphite pencil on the zipper teeth and you’ll be unstuck in a jiffy.
Avoid Looking Boxy
If you’re wearing a loose, oversized top, don’t let it hang out. Try doing the front tuck instead. Not only will this give you a waistline that’s defined and flattering, but it’ll help you look stylishly on fleek.
The Hangover Hack
You occasionally enjoy going to a late-night party, but you absolutely hate looking hungover the next day. So, to get over looking so hungover, try using some nude eyeliner. It works better than Tinker Bell’s wand, and it’s also useful if your eyes are a little bit puffy.
