Wish App

A wonderful App my mother turned me onto is Wish. It’s mostly Chinese buyouts so everything is super cheap!

Most items range from $1 to $10 depending on the product. Also you can find lower listings for a product if you dig around a bit. They also have a large variety of different categories of products to choose from. Some products might not be exactly as they’re advertised so I advise looking at the comments.

When it comes to clothes beware of the sizing and read what others have said. These are Chinese products so the sizes seem to run a bit small. They do carry some plus sized clothing as well.

What’s the catch? For such low prices there is always a compromise. They ship it to you at the lowest rate possible so it can take up to one or two months to even receive a product. So if you’re willing to wait for that great deal it’s worth it!


Upcycle short shirt

I bought this cute simple shirt during a Wet Seal sale online and got it for about $5. The problem is the first time I washed it the bottom of the shirt shrunk upwards causing it to be far to short on me. I still liked the shirt and the only problem was the length so I decided to just add some lace to the bottom to get that length back.

I measured how many yards of lace I needed and headed to Hobby Lobby. Being the savvy shopper I am I brought along my 40% off coupon. You can almost always find a Hobby Lobby coupon online or from their E-mails.

This is such a quick and easy fix that adds a whole new dimension to the shirt! I pinned the lace along the bottom hem starting in the back. I overlaid the lace in the back to sew it together. Then I sewed along the existing hem to hide my new threads to add the lace.

No need to toss out a shirt because it shrunk a bit, just be creative and add to it!
