The Ramen Noodle Budget: an Introduction

You want to start dressing nicely. That’s great! But as you read up on quality clothing and proper fit, you may get sticker shock when you find out how much many of these better garments cost.   

Don’t fret. If you’re on a Ramen Noodle Budget, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to resign yourself to dressing poorly. We’re here to help! 

Now, you have to remember the trilemma of when it comes to dressing well: You want high-quality items, at an affordable price, and you want it now: 

The Ramen Noodle Budget Plan is based upon the idea that you’ll have to give up on the last desire: wanting an item quickly. The truth is that you’ll have to exercise a lot of patience and a lot of time to make this work for you. If you’re looking for an overnight solution, then you’ll have to go elsewhere. Sorry, them’s the breaks, amigo.

Still, I wrote this with the intention of giving you a series of initial steps you can take to make your dollar stretch further and lay the groundwork for hunting down deals. If you’re a patient person, then you can definitely build your wardrobe up from modest means. 

This series of posts will detail several steps for you to take to not only get started on building a better wardrobe, but also how to do it on the cheap.
