Don't Underestimate An Off-Price Retail Store

Why spend more when you can get the same thing for less?

Don't Underestimate An Off-Price Retail Store

Off-price retail stores are extremely common today, yet very underrated and underestimated. One of the most affordable ways to shop, with a multitude of popular name brands, these stores should be your go to. Why go to large expensive department stores when you can find the exact same brands for cheaper?

Here are five reasons why you should not underestimate an off-price retail store and you should head over to one ASAP:

1. Nice brands for an affordable price

From Lagos to Michael Kors, to Valentino and Jimmy Choo, these off-price retail stores have almost every nice brand. And the best part? They’re almost half the price. Why spend full price on those Christian Louboutin shoes you just NEED to have when you can buy them for almost half off?! Off-price retail stores have a multitude of varying brands and items and all at an affordable price. Almost everything you can find is nice, well made and well priced.

2. Finding one-of-a-kind items

Of course, you can find differing opinions on all items that are trending at the moment. However, you can find items that no one else has. There's nothing better than having the cutest pair of jeans or shoes and knowing that no one else is wearing them too. You can feel like you have your own style and are unique in your own way. These stores are the perfect place to find items to add a change to your style, and personalize it making it just for you! You’ll be the only one rocking the cutest booties ever.

3. More value

There is simply no better feeling than walking out of a store spending the same amount of money on six items, that you would've spent on one item at another store. Off-price retail stores allow you to get more for your buck! You can buy amazing items of the same quality for a much more affordable price. With such a great price, you can buy even more without feeling all the guilt!

4. Shopping from every department

Most off-price retail stores allow you to shop from all different departments. Between jewelry, apparel, bags, furniture, beauty products, etc. there are an abundance of opportunities and items to find. Everything is in one place, with all different items, and again, all for an affordable price.

5. Return anything with no restocking fee

One of the best policies with most of these off-price retail stores is that you can return anything without a restocking fee. There is nothing worse than paying a fee for having to return something you do not want. You can return any of these items whenever you need and never have to worry about paying a fee for it. Just another great way to save money.

PSA: The number one rule with off-price retail stores; if you see something you like, buy it! Sometimes there's only one or two of these items in every store, and if you don't buy it, the item might not be there when you decide you want it and come back. Buy the item if you’re considering it at all. And you don't need to worry, you won't be charged if you return it!

Where to shop: TJ Maxx, Marshall's, Ross Stores, Nordstrom Rack, Saks Off 5th, Bluefly, DSW, Burlington Coat Factory

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
