I know we talk a lot about coupons and getting a good deal. Do you think about how to get the best deals on clothes?Shopping for clothes the frugal way will help you out.I am not really into fashion myself. I am happy with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or a sweatshirt. I am lucky I work in a construction office and do not have to dress for success everyday.I do not mind dressing up sometimes but with me being overweight nothing makes me to happy when shopping for clothes.
My daughter on the other hand thinks of herself as a fashion diva. She loves clothes and loves to dress for success everyday.My daughter is very lucky, she gets Hand Me Downs from my best friend. She always has top of the line clothes and the name brand clothes. My daughter could open a shop with all of her clothes. I try to get her to go through her clothes occasionally.That is like pulling nails with a 16 year old teenager.
thredUp is just like a online consignment shop. Buy and sell practically new children’s clothing. Save up to 80% on your favorite brands, and turn outgrown clothes into cash (all from home).
I would suggest you over looking your clothes before you decide to go shopping. You could have a closet full of clothes that you may have hidden. If you have clothes that you can no longer wear and still in great shape you could always consign them out.In my local area we have Facebook groups and we post what we have for sale along with a picture and set a price. This is a great way to clean out unwanted clothes.I do not suggest Ebay only because they do have seller fees and those fees can add up.
Places to shop the frugal way:
- Consignment or Thrift Stores
- Only swaps
- Yard Sales
If you must shop at the mall, always sign up for the newsletter. If you sign up for the newsletter you will often get a coupon for up coming sales to your favorite stores. You could also shop end of season sales and get more band for your buck.
