Saving money on clothes is easier than you think. With some simple tricks up your sleeve, you'll be refreshing your wardrobe and sticking to your budget. The days of paying full price for everything are over. It's time to save some serious cash.
Whether you love clothes shopping or need to revamp your closet on a budget, these money-saving style hacks are for you. Stop wasting money on overpriced pieces that go out of style the next season. In this blog post, we're going to guide you on how to score some major deals and transform the way you shop. It's time to save hundreds of dollars each year while still looking like a million bucks!
Shop Smart When Buying Clothes
First, let's talk about some basic smart-shopping: Start by checking your closet and drawers to know what you already have and what needs replacing. Make a list of necessities such as:
Next, look for either discount stores or promo codes for your favorite stores before you shop. Sign up for store credit cards which often offer initial discounts. Buy clothes out of season - shop for summer in winter and winter in summer. The deals should be much better.
Once in the store, avoid paying full price. Check the clearance racks first. Look for additional savings like student or military discounts if applicable. Ask if they price match - many stores will match a lower price from a competitor.
Learn How to Repair and Care for Your Clothes
To keep your favorite wardrobe staples in rotation longer, you'll need to give them some care. Here are some tips:
Learn basic repair skills.
Knowing how to sew a button, patch holes, or reattach a strap can help you extend the life of your own clothes. Watch online tutorials to pick up some basics. Keep a small sewing kit on hand for quick fixes.
Following the instructions on the tags will keep your clothes in good shape. Wash similar colors together in cold water and air dry when possible. For delicates, use a mesh laundry bag and the gentle cycle. Avoid over-drying clothes which can cause damage and fading.
A quick press with the iron removes wrinkles and makes clothes look brand new. Touch up shirts and slacks before wearing them again. Or if you're short on time, hang clothes in the bathroom while you shower to release wrinkles.
Mend holes and tears promptly.
Minor damage is easy to repair but will only get bigger if left unattended. As soon as you notice a loose seam, hole, or tear, patch it up as soon as possible. Some strategic stitches can save an item from the donation pile.
Shop Thrift and Consignment Stores
Shopping at thrift and consignment stores is one of the best ways to save money on new clothes. Thrift store organizations such as Goodwill and Salvation Army sell donated, used clothing at rock bottom prices. You could find great pieces for a fraction of the retail clothing costs. Some thrift stores even have online retailers allowing you to shop online for cheap clothes! Shop sales and use coupons for even better discounts. Thrifting requires some digging, but you can uncover real gems. Look for brand name and vintage pieces in good condition.
You never know what treasures you might find thrifting, so go in with an open mind. Also, make sure to check all sections of the store, as clothing can end up in wrong areas. Try on anything you’re interested in, as sizing can be inconsistent. Bring cash, as some smaller thrift stores don’t accept cards.
Consignment Offers Curated Selection
If digging in racks of used clothing isn’t your thing, try visiting consignment stores. They offer a more curated selection of secondhand clothing in good condition. You’ll pay slightly higher prices than thrift stores but still a fraction of retail. Some even specialize in upscale, designer brands or dress clothes.
It's a good idea to ask if they have any current sales or discounts for students, teachers, seniors, or military. Check if they have a rewards program or newsletter to get coupon codes and be the first to know about special events. With some digging at thrift and consignment stores, you can refresh your entire wardrobe on a budget. Why keep spending money on full price clothes when you can purchase gently used ones for pennies on the dollar?
