Knowing how to spend less on clothes is a great way to reduce your household spending. Read on for four money-saving tips this shopping season.
Take inventory. You check your pantry before heading to the supermarket; shouldn’t you also take stock of your closets before hitting the mall? This is especially important when shopping for a new season. It’s easy to forget pieces you’ve got hidden in the back of your closet or buried deep in a drawer from last winter. Take a careful inventory of what each family member has and what they still need and write it down. This way, you won’t come home to find that you already have what you’ve purchased.
Shop the sales. Fall has a few observed holidays that bring awesome sales, so take advantage! There’s Columbus Day, Veterans Day and then the markdown day of the year, Black Friday. There’s also Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday. It’s worth waiting for the next holiday to buy what you need. You can save a lot just by being patient!
Shop the overstock. Stores that specialize in deeply discounted merchandise, like DSW, T.J. Maxx, and Marshalls, can be a terrific source for name brand clothing at generic prices. You may have to sift through racks until you find a real bargain, but it will be well worth your time. These stores are especially beneficial for stocking up on basics.
