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.
