Living on a Shoestring? Not such a bad thing.

Shoestring MagazineMy biggest complaint about fashion magazines, besides the perfume samples, is… well, the perfume samples. But I also hate it when my eyes fall in love with cuteness before hitting the huge price tag printed below.

Shoestring Magazine solves both
problems: It’s online, and therefore not smelly, and it is devoted to,
and I quote, “resourcefulness, the look for less, and attainable,
affordable luxuries.” Sound good? Well, it is.

Shoestring has
well-written and fashion savvy articles on nearly all the topics that I
want to hear about– from lifestyle to DIY to Kids
& Pets, which, grouped together, cracks me up more
than it probably should.

The articles that caught my eye include 6 Ways to Green
Your Budget Beauty Routine
, Free Summer Concerts for All Ages, and Top
Ten Gifts For Kids That Inspire Creativity
, which includes an awesome
yarn beard. I passed on 7 Recession Friendly Rompers, which seemed to
forget that it’s my body they need to be friendly to, which isn’t likely
to happen.

You
can also subscribe to t

heir weekly email, The Gumshoe Files,
which offers tips for saving money and the planet. Out of respect for their credo, it’s absolutely
free.~Delilah
