  1. Does every piece if the ensemble have to be acquired after joining the contest, or can it include things we already own?

  2. Hello Abby!
    I come from Feelin' Feminine and hope you don't mind if I ask a question concerning the Thrifty 15 challenge. Can I use a piece of clothing that was on sale at a department store? Say Kohl's or Younkers? I have this gorgeous long flowy skirt that was originally around $60, but I got it for $3!! I love it. =) Does that count? Thanks for your reply!
    Many blessings to you.

  3. Hello Ladies!

    Carolyn, yes, you are welcome to use items you already have as long as you can give/remember the price!

    Annie, that sounds like you got a great deal! I'm fine with purchases made from department stores or brand names! A deal is a deal!

    The goal is to get young ladies to think outside the box and gain radiant beauty!

    Happy $15!

  4. What a fun challenge, and what a a challenge!
    I hope we don't have to count in underwear... seeing as buying underwear in thrift stores is not a good idea... so it can't come that cheap. ;-)


Tell me what you know, what you think, or what you believe.
