Looking And Feeling Your Best On A Shoestring Budget

 (All posts may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy

If you’re on a shoestring budget, then you might be wondering just how you’re supposed to look and feel good about yourself. Don’t worry! The tips here will help you to look and feel your best regardless of your budget. You don’t need a lot of money to be the best version of you!

Make Or Upcycle Your Own Clothes

OK, so you don’t have much money, and clothes are really expensive these days. What can you do? How about making or upcycling your own clothes? Making your clothes is a little harder. Probably a little more expensive at first too, as you’ll need a sewing machine and supplies to get started. However, once you have those things, you can start changing up your current pieces. Whether you change the length, the fit, or simply add badges and patches, you can create a whole new piece of clothing.

If you’ve been staring at something in your wardrobe for a while but you haven’t worn it, don’t give it away or throw it in the bin. Try to create something new with it first. With a tutorial and a few pieces of equipment, you might just be surprised at what you can make.

Make Some Of Your Own Products

Why not make some of your own products too? You can make natural face masks with things like honey and yoghurt. You can even make body scrubs using honey and brown sugar. Natural ingredients are great for the body, and can be used for many different purposes around the house too. You can also be smug when you tell yourself that your beauty routine is all natural and homemade!

Find Bargain Makeup Stores

Don’t worry when it comes to buying makeup, either. Makeup can be really expensive, that is, until you find bargain makeup stores. You can find bargain makeup stores that sell all kinds, like Anastasia makeup and even NARS. If you do have the money to splash out on a product, make sure you look for one of these stores first. Just be sure to make sure they are legitimate. You don’t want to end up buying fake products, and potentially putting dangerous chemicals on your face in the process.

Treat Your Body and Mind Right

In order to look and feel your best, you need to treat your body and mind right. This means doing a bunch of different things to feel great in general. Exercise can be done outside and with minimal equipment; you really don’t need a gym membership. Doing this 3 times a week will make a huge difference to how you look and feel. Eating healthy may seem difficult, but when you grow your own veg and buy from local sources, you can get the best ingredients and save money at the same time.

Meditating is also a practice that is totally free and really valuable. It can help you to feel happier, more alert, more creative, and so much more! Doing it for just 5 minutes a day can make a difference!
