Upgrade Your Outfits Without Downgrading Your Net Worth

With a little creativity, those ragged clothes that fill your closet don’t have to define the way you look. You can class up your wardrobe if you’re willing to put in enough work to shop for steals at the right places

He says you should start by weeding out your closet of the undesirables, then start scouting garage sales, thrift shops and consignment stores for some replacements.
