*Hawk your stuff.* One man’s trash is another’s treasure. Sell your stuff on e-bay or get a group of people together and have a “dorm sale” (like a yard sale, but, well you get the picture). You can also sell your stuff to consignment shops—some will let you put the amount toward something else in the store. Which brings us to our next point…
*Consignment Shops.* Some specialize in designer digs. They’re a great way to pick up vintage clothes and accessories—and even a few items from last season for a few bucks a pop. The upside—you probably won’t see anyone else walking around campus in your clothes.
*“Bag, Borrow or Steal”.* Now a days you can actually rent the stuff you can’t afford. To rent a handbag, go to http://www.bagborroworsteal.com.
*Or, just borrow.* It’s old fashioned, and you don’t get to keep the clothes, but you’re wearing something different and that’s what counts. If you live in a dorm or a fraternity/sorority house, the options are endless.
