Foxxy Female Finance Fridays (FFFF) – Designer on a Dime

FFFF Poshmark

Helllooo! I hope everyone had a great week! This Friday I’m going to focus on how to get designer items for pennies on the many, many dollars they cost new (and some used).

While you can find many awesome finds at Goodwill and sicount stores, if you look really, really hard and often- I’ve found the best place to buy new-to-me items is Poshmark

Poshmark is the Best Platform to Buy Used

While yes, this is me pushing to buy from my Poshmark store and use my referral code, MeredithFoxx, when you sign up, I do genuinely love Poshmark.

I’m not going to lie, if I want the experience of going to the store, oogling over all the leather and chrome, and being serviced like a Queen- I’ll buy new. If there’s something that would break my heart in two if it was used- I’ll buy new. But for many accessories or even expensive clothing, I’ll buy used.

Prime examples of buying used, designer sunglasses. Okay, so one, all designer sunglasses are made in essentially the same factory. Sorry, but there’s no difference between the $20 Target glasses and the $650 Balenciaga pair, except the label on the glasses- and the price you ultimately pay. However, I will pay $100 for designer glasses when the original price is $450. They’re an accessory and chances are I’m wearing a $10 shirt. I personally like to focus on shoes, bags, and other accessories because I can use them every day.

I’m also not about to drop $125 on a pair of Lulu Lemon leggings, no matter how cute they are. But I will spend $50 on a slightly used pair.

You get the idea, bougie on a budget is Poshmark.

Oh! On Luxury goods, Poshmark will guarantee authenticity as well. So no worries there!

The Other Perk of Poshmark

The other perk of Poshmark is that you can sell your stuff too! When you sign up use my code MFoxx21. Selling your stuff not only de-clutters your space, but also puts cash in your pocket.  It’s really easy to sell on and super fun to meet other sellers!

Do you sell on Poshmark? Or Tradesy? What’s your experience been so far?

August 2018 Multiple Income Stream (MIS) Report

i

MIS August 2018

 

My main financial goal- besides killing it at my 9-5 job, is to create multiple streams of income. Multiple… semi-passive streams of income. I already have money invested, but I need <em> more</em> coming in the door to meet my goals faster. I also need a hobby. Or, hobbies. And a great hobby is one that you can make some money doing. A great hobby is also something that produces rather than consumes.

I’ve decided on making money online as my best side hustle options. It’s relatively low cost to get into and is kind of like a puzzle. Everyone says making money online is so <em> easy</em>. You can make <strong> $10,000</strong> a month online through Affiliate marketing and niche sites!!!

The thing is, I believe them. I believe it can be done and I want to make that type of side income. Just like <a href=”https://www.smartpassiveincome.com/”&gt; Pat Flynn </a> over at Smart Passive Income, I want ridiculous earnings.

But I want my earnings to be meaningful. I want to help people and I want to see other people be successful.

<h2> My Attempt in Month One </h2>

This month, August 2018 I bought this domain and another. I’ve wanted to start a finance blog for a while and I’m finally doing it! My other site is dedicated to <a href=”https://expertsecrets.com/?cf_affiliate_id=1267291&affiliate_id=1267291″&gt; Clickfunnels</a> . I read through <a href=”https://expertsecrets.com/?cf_affiliate_id=1267291&affiliate_id=1267291″&gt; Expert Secrets</a> which is a Free book (just pay shipping and absolutely believe everything Russel talks about. I’m aiming to purchase a Clickfunnels account later this year to try my hand at marketing.

In conjunction to the ClickFunnel’s website, I did a Facebook Ad Campaign. I was fairly impressed with the ease of setting it up. While the campaign itself was disappointing, you can read about it here, I definitely learned something and took value away from the process.

 

I plan on using FB Ad manager again, if that’s how you found this website then cool! Welcome, and I hope you enjoy 🙂

<h2> In Summary </h2>

While this month has overall been negative, $300 for one domain, $96 for another, and $40 in FB Ads, I am not giving up on Affiliate marketing. Or, this blog (duh!). This is my main outlet right now and I love it. As of this entry, I only have about 6 other blog posts. But I hope this develops into an archive I can look back at and reference, and hopefully  other people can too!

 

Are you into Affiliate Marketing? How much per day are you earning?
