Have you noticed a theme on the blog lately?? I’m very centered around putting in minimal effort in the mornings… (If you missed Monday’s post, it’s all about what to wear when you “just can’t”.) I guess it’s just the chill of winter, the lack of sleep, and the adjustment of going back to school that’s making me so lazy and lethargic, ya feel?

So I’m definitely not going to have gorgeously curled locks flowing from my beanie, like you see all over Pinterest.

Happy 2020! Have you had to sign anything in the last few days?? I’ve already written “2019” at least twice… You know how it is. With the new year, I wanted to share a few ways you can save money shopping in 2020 by making an Excel cost per wear spreadsheet. I first shared my obsessive Excel clothing spreadsheet in a blog post back in June, and it was such a hit that I wanted to explain how to make your own as we enter the new year.
