For jeans, I get the most use out of a wide black leather belt with plain silver buckle by Dickies. Simple, rugged, looks great. Price: a whopping $12.

Searching for a vintage belt can be a hassle, but there are some rewards to be had. I have a really cool brown leather belt with punch design, probably from the '70s.

Casual belts seem to be one of the hardest things to thrift for. I have lucked out on a couple, but it is pretty rare. A lot of used ones are beat to death.

That said, some of the Gap ones are pretty well made and reasonably good looking, and Express has separate straps (changeable buckle type) that go on sale for as little as $5 sometimes. I got one from there and it's not bad looking at all.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
