Welcome to my new blog! So you may be asking, what exactly is a recessionista? Well, I'm here to tell you.
The term recessionista derives from a combination of the words recession and fashionista. It is used to make light of a bad situation and demonstrate how people can maintain their lifestyles in times of struggle.
A recessionista can shop on a limited budget and still manage to be up to date on the most current fashions. A recessionista does not let a bad economy, inflation, or a strong recession damage his or her wardrobe and opts to search for sales and shop at thrifty discount stores instead.
Being a recessionista is a way of life. I absolutely love the challenge of finding great deals, good finds, and fabulous foods on a dime. There is a sense of accomplishment that I feel with every recessionista moment that I have. I have started this blog to share with my readers ways to enjoy this wonderful city of Greenville, SC without breaking the bank. I'll be doing all the grunt work, research, product development, and (heaven forbid) taste testing and shopping- you just get to reap the benefits! Keep checking back every week for new updates.
