MY SHOPPING FINDS: AFFORDABLE SHOPPING FOR THE HOLIDAYS/ TOPE AKWADA/ 7 DECEMBER


Shopping for your loved ones over the holidays can be tedious. There are so many stores offering sales, discounts and deals and it can be difficult deciding where exactly to shop.

More so if you will be doing a lot of gifting due to the number of people you are shopping for, funds can get depleted really quickly. Fear not though because even with the amazing deals everywhere, things could still get expensive so today's post hopes to provide 2 options for affordable shopping that won't have you feeling disappointed or broke by the end.

                                                                     5 BELOW



An incredible store with an even more incredible selection of possible gifts for the entire family. As the name implies, every single item in here costs $5 or less and you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything. This is where I got gifts for my niece and older sister but the store also has an impressive T-shirt collection, room accents, makeup and skin products, a wide array of toys and a nice little style section for the fashion babe or boy in your family.





There is a small but adequately stocked athleisure wear section and of course the store is filled with cute little knick-knacks suitable for stocking stuffers that the family will appreciate. In short, the 5 Below store won't leave you feeling like you would have to live on Ramen Noodles for the next few months to recoup all that spending.

When I found this store at the Stonebriar Center in Frisco, I was excited. First because it was such a cute girly store but also because every single thing in there cost $1. That's exactly right, everything from makeup and hair accessories to jewelry and bath bombs is a single dollar each.





How awesome is it that you can go into a store with only $20 and can leave with bags filled with Christmas gifts for everybody? I don't know about you but if that isn't some affordable shopping for you this time of year, then I don't know what is.






Other affordable shopping options would be places like Burlington, Ross, JC Penney, TJ Maxx, Charlotte Russe and Forever 21. These places currently have some great deals and discounts going on that everyone naturally is taking advantage of. But if you are tight on budget like most folks, then consider 5 Below and Miss A for your holiday shopping needs.

Next week Saturday will be my last official blog post for the year so make sure to keep it a date as usual.

Always Love 💕
