"Nothing is free in life"

    With this post I would just like to prove the saying "nothing is free in life" wrong. And no, I'm not going to talk about love, sleep, family, the sun and great memories being free "for the most part". I'm going to talk "materialistic" (about 'stuff' you get for free in life). For people that "lots of money" is a far away word you can always begin searching threw sales and thrift shops and suchlike to spend at least less money. I've noticed that it only takes a creative soul to reach that goal! You don't need loads of money looking great. But in the end it may be cheap but it aint free, and I am writing this post to prove the saying "Nothing is for free in life" wrong. Firstly, you cannot forget all the things you get from people for your birthday, graduation, or just out of kindness. From who you get it and what for occasion it may be in the end it's free.  But all in all you won't get a whole closet full of clothes, make-up, shoes and accessories as a little gift.. So this is the part where you really gotta sit tight and listen up! This is the good part. When you are really in need of a new look you gotsta be REAL creative. For example last summer I went to an event where people had organized a free clothing market. The idea was to bring in some clothes you would like to give away and then take some clothes back in return! So I brought loads of clothes I didn't even know existed anymore and took 3 shopping bags full with colberts , pants, shirt and shoes (Not only for myself). All for free! To find these sorts of events you have to keep your eyes and ears open and most important: google. Search the internet for these sorts of events, they get held everywhere! Secondly If you are already interested in fashion go and visit fashion events. The most fashion events will offer free supplies because they want to promote there business. A while ago for example I posted about a fashion event I went to and got a goodie bag with items and I was aloud to pick out a pair of heels FOR FREE. Finally a lot of magazines offer free stuff by a membership of the magazine. In the end you should only subscribe (member of the magazine) if your interested in the magazine because you do pay money for the membership and the Item you get with the magazine is only nice to get with the magazine. Another example I have of a free item I got threw a magazine. I decorated a photo-album chose out pictures for it and let it get send to my house: FOR FREE. Now I have a cute photo album with a hard cover with all pictures of me in it!
     Klik "read more" and you will get a whole bunch of pictures of stuff I got myself for free. But in the end remember that without love, sleep, family the sun, great memories and more you won't get any happier with supplies. Invest in your true happiness. For me that is friends and family and certainly not "stuff" although I do really enjoy the company of a new shoe of example. But you just gotsta always be happy with what you do have and remember that there will always be someone that has it more difficult than you do.

This was just a post to show you and remind myself that there are lots things in life material wise for free. But I must say It was rather a long story, but bare with me ! click read more to check out some pictures of  some clothes that I got from the free clothes market :) Just trying to be creative and not      only buy stuff that everyone already has
