Want to save money on your clothes? Dress for less!

There comes a time in everyone’s life where we have to update our wardrobe. It is about the time when our revamped old clothes start to fall apart and look like rags. The problem is clothes are expensive, and not everyone can afford a new closet every couple of months. I know I can’t, no matter how much I think I can! But, fear not because I have found a couple of ways to dress for less. Just follow these thrifty tips and you will save tons of cash on your clothes in no time.

Go To Charity Shops

No one is too good for charity shops because there are plenty of bargains on offer. Not just bargains that are cheap, but bargains that are cheap and stylish. You might have to shop around, and it might take a while, but you will find one in the end. Check out your local charity shop every now and again for the bargain of the century!

Shop Around

Don’t buy the first piece of clothing you like. The odds are there are plenty of other items in other shops that are cheaper. The problem that a lot of people have with the high street is it is generic. You can find one piece of clothing at River Island and Next quite easily. But, that plays into your hands because it means there is more chance for a bargain. Shop around and keep your fingers crossed that competitors are looking to steal away custom.

Use Coupons

Some stores do accept coupons for clothes. Coupons do have a stigma, but they can slash prices in half. A half-price sale is too much of a drop to let it slip through your fingers.

Take Advantage Of Offers

Obviously, a lot of stores have offers at certain times of the year, like Christmas and January. So, if you can wait until then, you could save a fortune. But, most high street chains do have offers all year around, they just don’t advertise them. If you are a student, work of the armed forces of work for the NHS, you can get a percentage taken off the final price. River Island and Topman have these offers all season round. Check out their websites for more information.

Buy From Wholesalers

Wholesale clothing does what most sellers cannot and cuts out the middleman. The middlemen are the people who add to that extra price that ends up costing you a fortune. If you can cut them out, you can cut out a big chunk of the price. All you need to do is find a wholesaler to buy from, and you are onto a winner.

Check The Tags

And not just for the price. You can’t just wash some clothes by throwing them in the washing machine. Depending on the material, they might need dry cleaning or another form of cleaning. That means every time it comes to laundry day, you have to fork out an extra ten or fifteen quid just to put them in the wash. Give it a bit of thought before you buy.
