Americans spend an average of $1,700 per year on clothing and accessories. But here are some ways to cut down the costs and still look good.
1. Sell what you don’t wear
If you don’t wear it, drop it off at a consignment shop. Or what has become an easier and quicker way is to sell online or in a buying in selling group. You don’t have to wait for your clothes to sell and it’s easy to do.
2. Shop thrift stores
Thrift stores sell gently used clothing at a deep discount. Nowadays there are high end thrift stores to suit your taste. I have gotten some really cute pieces from thrift stores.
3. Find coupons online
Nobody wants to pay full price if you can help it, right? If your on the go, use your smart phone to find clothing coupons at checkout. Here are some great coupon locating apps.
4. Buy out of season
I love doing this because I can find some really good deals and get a lot for my money. Retailers put out-of-season clothing on clearance to clear the stock from there stores. You can save a ton buying clothing when you don’t need it.
5. But basics from generic brands
Your basics don’t need a designer label. I get my basics from Target, Old Navy, and TJ Max. You can buy your T-shirts, tank tops, and lounge wear from cheaper stores.
I hope these 5 tips help you save a little on buying clothes. Oh and right now at Target there is a huge rack of clearance clothes and accessories! I got these cute boots for $8.00!!
