1. Bought winter boots!
That just about completes my winter clothing kit. I could use a few more hats, I suppose, but it's all good.
|Projected expenses||CAD 650<br/>|
|Total spent||CAD 462.76 (and that's with 4 coats, a number of pairs of gloves, and a couple of unnecessary items...)|
- Buy coats at Goodwill, Salvation Army, and other thrift shops for
awesome savings. You might be able to find good styles, and the quality's pretty okay. Check out the Goodwill at Gerrard. I found petite coats there. Also, it's close to the Salvation Army shop (Parliament, I think?).
- Buy shoes new. Payless Shoe Source is a good place to get decent
boots. Finding your size and style in liquidation sales or second-hand shops is too much work. You might also want to buy jeans new for the same reason.
- Invest in a few quality pieces. My wind-resistant fleece (Mountain
Equipment Co-op) is expensive at CAD 99, but it's very good at keeping me warm, it's easy to layer and it looks pretty decent. I think it's a good deal. And it feels good to wear, too. =)
