Three ways to Disney Bound on a budget tips

How to Disney Bound on a Budget

As you know from Six Reasons Why You Should NEVER Clear Your Closet Out If You Want To Disney Bound, it is extremely important to never get rid of what’s in your closet because Disney Bounding is a pretty expensive hobby! So how do you make sure you can still keep your Disney Bounds fresh, frequent, and cute but not break the bank? Here’s how you are going to Disney Bound on a budget.

Thrift stores are nothing like they used to be

I grew up bouncing from thrift store to thrift store with my mom. The long hours, the disorganized atmosphere, and that weird smell that they all seemed to have all gave me the impression that thrift stores are, in all matters of the word, “icky”.

But over the last few years, I started to see so many people finding adorable Disney finds by shopping at thrift stores. Not to mention, finding pieces that seemed way too new to already be in a thrift store. So I decided to go back and I was so pleasantly surprised with how organized the thrift stores I went to were now!

Since then, I have frequented thrift stores as my go-to for finding Disney Bounds with ease! The bill has always been so cost-friendly and the quality has actually been shockingly good. I guess you can thank fast-fashion for that because that fashion sure turns up in thrift stores pretty darn fast. For those in the San Diego area, my absolute favorite thrift store is Valley Thrift Store. I can’t tell you how many things I have found there, including actual Disney Parks products.

What to consider while thrift shopping

I think one of the biggest things you need to remember while thrift store shopping is to not go in with one specific idea of what you want or need. It’s good to have direction, but it isn’t a good idea to have one exact thing you want otherwise you will walk out disappointed.

The other big thing I think you need to remember while shopping is to remember that you don’t HAVE to shop. What I mean by that is to remember what you have in your own closet at home. There’s no need to waste money on something you can easily incorporate into your outfit that you already have.

Below I have attached some pictures of my content that would not be possible without thrifting:

Poshmark has given me a more accurate searching tool for Disney Bounding on a budget

Now, if you can’t find any thrift store finds that suit you or don’t have ones near you, then I highly recommend getting addicted to Poshmark like I have. Through this site, I was able to find the types of pieces that I wasn’t able to find while shopping. Not to mention that I scored an incredible deal on them.

Poshmark listings are pretty much like shopping thousands of thrift stores in an online setting. Not to mention, I can make some side money selling the pieces that I have grown out of or don’t have a need for anymore. {If you want to jumpstart your own closet, use my code DONNA_FAABORG when signing up for a new account and you will receive $10 to spend on the app!}

Here’s some examples of complete Disney Bound outfits that I have found on Poshmark:

Shein has a huge catalog to find amazing Disney Bound ideas

Lastly, Shein is an online store that has a huge library of great finds for Disney Bounds. The prices are usually pretty low and there are pages and pages of pieces to explore. The only downside is that some of the item are pretty hit or miss in terms of fit and quality. I really only shop on Shein for more specific things I am trying to find for my Disney Bounds. Below I have attached some pictures of outfits that were put together solely from Shein: (shop these looks by clicking the picture or following me on LikeToKnow.It)

Use these resources to Disney Bound on a budget regularly!

Overall I am coming to realize that I never should have given away any of my old clothes because I probably got rid of so many great things that I could have used for future Disney Bounds! So as much as your significant others may beg you to empty your closet, just let them know that by cleaning it, that just means you have to spend more to create future outfits.
