St. Patrick's Day..Cheap

So St. Patrick's Day is probably one of the best days of the school year and what's even better is that it falls on the weekend this year.
The only thing better is getting dressed up in all the green you can find, and doing it cheaply.

So here are a few tips on how to dress up, look good and do it without spending a ton of money (since we all know its close to the end of the year and our bank accounts look pretty empty)

Here are a few stores I like to check out for cheap St. Patties Day swag;

-You can find an assortment of necklaces, hats, cups and wigs for around $1-$2 each.
Note: Don't buy their really tall skinny plastic cup with straw and parade around with it on the streets, it't considered an open container and the Police might not like it too much.

-If you want to grab some green sunglasses, socks, t-shirts/tops you can normally find some great stuff here.
Tip: Go with your friends and buy multiples, normally the deals at Ardene's are when you buy 2 or 3 of each of a certain item

Old Navy
-If you want an actual t-shirt that says St.Patrick's day, or even just some green tops or even green pants, these are on sale this week at Old Navy

Value Village
-Always a good one when it comes to costumes for Halloween, it definitely could be a great place to find some really wacky green clothing, obviously options vary by store


  1. The idea about not buying the plastic cup is a good one. Been there, done that - lol

  2. You have no idea how much I'm looking forward to tomorrow :).
