I’ve been blogging for four years now and I can admit, things tend to get a bit stale. So that’s why last week I asked you guys to take a short reader survey {you can still take it, here} to get a better idea of what you like, dislike or want more of.

Combined with a few of the results and some ideas I’ve been playing around with, I wanted to share what’s new for Looking Fly on a Dime® in 2014.

I’m pretty much addicted to my phone. Like most people, my phone acts as an appendage. Sometimes I hate how connected I am at times. But it feels like a necessary evil when I’m blogging on the go, turning in assignments and of course taking the occasional selfie or Instagramming a yummy meal. But what I really hate is a sky-high phone bill.

So I was excited to hear about the debut of Aio Wireless. The brand launched in select cities earlier this year and they offer something a lot of wireless providers lack: hassle free service, sleek products and major affordability. Their plans range from $40-$70, which includes all {yes, all!} taxes and fees, so you always know how much your bill will be.

Thrifty Threads 365: Should I Resume My Thrift Shopping Challenge?

If you’re not new to Looking Fly on a Dime, then you may remember my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge. And if you’re not familiar, let me give you a quick refresher…
Thrifty Threads 365 was a year long thrift shopping challenge I originally started in September 2010. I only purchased secondhand clothing for 365 days {the only new clothing I could buy was undergarments}. Well, I successfully completed two separate cycles of Thrifty Threads 365 {first in September 2010-September 2011 and then October 2011-October 2012}. Both times I shopped thrift and vintage shops and the last time, I even stuck to a $50/month budget. I ended up spending just $460 on clothing for 2012.
Well, I’m thinking of starting Thrifty Threads 365 up again…
