The Best Ways to Save Money on Clothes

Did you know? Americans spend approximately $1700 each year on clothing and accessories alone. That’s an average of about $140 each month – which can create quite a dent in your budget! Fortunately, you don’t have to spend nearly this much on your wardrobe. There are numerous ways to save money on clothes, and following these few simple tips can help keep some of your hard-earned cash in your wallet. 

  • Shop at Thrift Stores:  Many times, you can find name brand clothing at a fraction of the regular cost when you shop at area thrift stores. Not only can you find gently worn clothing that still has a lot of life left, but sometimes you can also find brand new clothing that just didn’t fit the owner’s needs. Watch for discount days and clearance racks to make the most of your thrift shop finds.
  • Shop Off-Season:  A lot of stores place off-season clothing on clearance in order to avoid storing an abundance of items for the rest of the year. Consider buying your swimsuit or shorts when the weather turns cooler, and buy coats and sweaters in the spring. If you plan accordingly, you can save big.
  • Buy Generics: When it comes to items like tank tops, t-shirts and track pants, you don’t necessarily need high-end designer brands. Shop discount stores for all of your basic clothing needs.
  • Host a Clothing Swap: At the start of the season, get together with friends and family members and trade clothing that isn’t worn frequently. This is a great way to end up with something fresh in your closet without needing to spend a dime.
  • Check Out Garage Sales in Your Area: Like thrift stores, garage sales often offer name brand clothing for pennies on the dollar.
  • Take Your Old Clothing to a Consignment Shop: One of the best ways to save money on clothes is to sell your old things and use the money to purchase new items. While you are there, be sure to check the racks for new-to-you items and make offers on clothing you are interested in.
