Here’s How To Stop Overpaying For Clothes
It’s hard to walk through any department store without eyeing up the clothing; especially if they’re on the sale rack. And although it can be tempting to buy that shirt in every single color (because, of course, that shirt you adore is available in five different colors), it’s imperative to be mindful of your wallet. Between season changes, trends and weight fluctuation, clothes are in continuous rotation, making it crucial to avoid any type of overspending. But, first, it’s time to think about where you’re shopping. Who said you had to pay department store prices to find high-quality items? Don’t break the bank! Here are three ways to get money-saving deals on your clothes.
1. Thrift Shops
Some great pieces can be found at your local thrift shop. Peruse through gently worn items that are priced at $3 or less; you may even come across items with tags! Remember that some thrift shops offer half priced days on certain tag colors or departments. Consider purchasing clothes that coordinate with the appropriate sale for that allotted day in order to secure the best price.
2. Discount Gift Cards
Have you heard of the money-saving website called Gift Card Granny? Granny helps shoppers find and compare discount gift cards. The cards can be used to save anywhere between 5% to 20% at popular stores such as Target, JCPenney, Kohl’s and Walmart. There’s even an entire category that’s dedicated to clothing. Combine discount gift cards with coupons, rebates, promo codes and more to maximize your savings.
3. Facebook Marketplace
Have you explored Facebook’s new Marketplace? The platform allows Facebook users to sell items such as clothes, toys, furniture, electronics and more. Utilize Marketplace to find used, or even new, clothes for less.
