Majority of households spend the least on clothes, but even so, that expense on clothes can still be trimmed down much more. Following the ways below can help save more money on clothes and still have nice clothes.
Get Better Quality Clothing
Rather than buy poor cheap quality clothes every month, go for super quality once in six months or even one year. Do your math at the end of the year and see how much you have saved as compared to previous years.
Shop Out Of Season
Shopping for clothes in December, around Christmas time is much more expensive than shopping few months before December. Buying winter jackets during winter is expensive, plan and shop before these peak seasons and save money.
Don’t Wash Clothes Too Often
Really? Yes. Washing your clothes much often facilitates wear and tear, meaning you will need to shop for replacements always. Avoid unnecessary spending by washing less often.
Fashion Does Not Kill
It is obvious that when a cloth trend is just new in the markets, the prices are usually exorbitant. Do not die to have it then. When that moment is past, you will get it at a sober cheaper price. Be wise.
Broaden Your Options
Do you know getting less expensive accessories for the basic wardrobe you have is a money saver? Accessorizing that blue shirt with white and red will make you look as fashionable and as expensive as new yet saving much too. Try It.
Identify A Store
It is wisdom to have this one place you always shop. Chances are, you will always get better deals and information on other upcoming deals apart from just better services. Occasionally they can even hold up a great item for you till you get cash to buy it.
Be Patient To Hunt
It is somehow painful to dash and buy at first glance a piece of cloth that goes at half price at the next shop you pass by. Be slow and go round the stores looking for the best prices before making a decision. This will help you save.
Repair The Clothes You Have
It feels easier to donate that great skirt you bought a month ago to an orphanage and replace it with a new one just because it has no buttons, but it is much easier and money saving to get it to a tailor for repair.
Take Good Care Of Your Clothes
Keep the clothes you love well. Protect them from rodents. Do not just through them anyhow. Most of these clothes have instructions on how to clean, dry, iron and even store. Be smart.
Buy What Fits You
With this in mind, you will not need more money to replace clothes that look funny on you, either by being too tight or too baggy. Neither will you buy new clothes and take them to a tailor. Save your money by buying what your size demands.
New does not necessarily translate to classy, neither do great labels do. Always plan before buying and make sure you only buy what you indeed need. Save your money.
