How far can INR 1,000 take you in the city? You’re probably thinking a lunch out {that too, sans alcohol} or a single trip to the grocery store.

We’re thinking jholas full of clothes, accessories, shoes and jewellery. Two of us LBB shopaholics went on a shopping expedition to Sarojini Nagar bearing only one thousand rupees each. Here’s what we managed to score.

PS: We also had some dough left over for a plate of  steamed pork momos.

When not day-dreaming, Navni likes to spend her time reading, writing blog posts for herself, shopping online, mollycoddling her labrador, discovering all there is to eat and drink in the city and trying to bake the perfect cake.
