In the initial days here I compared everything, from places to prices, to what I was familiar with back home in Bangkok.

I realize I actually could have saved hundreds of the thousands of bucks I’ve splurged so far if I’d gone to the smaller off-price department stores instead like Ross, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Burlington Coat Factory, Big Lots, and outlet stores, thrift stores, or surplus warehouses for certain items. I didn't know about it, so people, here’s what I’m telling you: if you don’t think shopping from cheaper stores is shameful – shop at those off-price or discount department stores and save some money.
