How To Save Money on Clothing: 5 Tips to Keep Your Wallet Smiling



With inflation soaring higher than our favorite pair of stiletto heels, we are in desperate need of relief. The two of us absolutely love shopping, and if you're reading this, you probably do too. Find out how you can save money on clothes by following these 5 tips.


Topics:

 

#1 Being Thrifty is Nifty


Second-hand stores are a great option for finding quality clothing at bargain prices. Although thrifting has always been a thing, Millennials and Gen Zers have recently re-popularized buying and styling pre-loved items as an inexpensive and creative way to express themselves.


Growing up, buying second-hand clothing was sort of stigmatized. Many people associated buying items from a garage sale or consignment shop with not having enough money to buy the hottest brand names and fashion trends. We realize now that they were just missing out on an opportunity to purchase many unique finds which allowed us to be able to stand out from the crowd.


So, don't miss out on your opportunity. Don’t be afraid to check out your local thrift store and see what you can find!



#2 Invest in Quality


Quality and timeless pieces will last you longer and can be worn multiple times and in different ways. In order to find quality items, you should make sure that the material is durable and will endure repeated use.


Since timeless pieces consist of items that never go out of style, you can find them anywhere. Amongst the many examples are jeans, t-shirts, blazers, leather jackets, etc. Want to know more about timeless clothing items? Check out the link to this blog post: Sometimes You Have To Be Basic.

Sis trust us, spending a bit more on one classic piece can in the end save you money.


#3 Catch Those Sales


Waiting for sales is a great way to get more bang for your buck. Throughout the year, many retailers offer huge discounts on items. Coupon codes can also be found when shopping online to help you save money on markdowns. There are also retailers that offer points on specific purchases and even free shipping.


We highly recommend signing up for store newsletters and emails to be the first to know when there’s a sale.



#4 Buy in Bulk


Buying in bulk is a great way to save money in the long run. Purchasing multiple items at once such as two-piece sets or even items that come in packs are great ways to mix and match pieces to create new looks.


Also, don't forget to look for discounts when buying multiple items from the same store.



#5 Re-purpose those Oldies


Altering older pieces of clothing to fit your style is another great way to save some money. If you're anything like us, we're not too savvy when it comes to using a sewing machine. Still, it doesn't take much to put a new spin on some old classic pieces.


Using scissors to turn an old pair of jeans into some cute Bermuda shorts or adding some bedazzle to a jacket or shirt can really take an old fit to new levels. All that's needed is a creative mind and the possibilities are endless. The goal is to use items we already own in order to be the most cost-effective.





In Conclusion....


We think we've covered a lot here but, if there are any tips you'd like to share....tell us about them. Leave us a comment below and don't forget to show us some love by liking this post. ❤️
