Part 6: How to Live on Less ~ Buying Clothes
When you have kids, you know how quickly they grow out of their clothes! Knowing how to buy clothes on the cheap can help you save a ton!
One of our favorite ways to save money on clothes for our boys (and ourselves) is at thrift stores. We have our favorite store that always has tons of nice clothes. We take a trip there about 4 times a year and stock up. You can see how to choose a great thrift store here.
If you don’t have a nice thrift store near you, you can try consignment shops as well. I have only really shopped at a couple but I know you can find some very good deals there as well. The prices aren’t quite as low as thrift stores, but the quality is usually very good.
When Mike or I need something more specific, we love to shop at off-retail stores like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross and some outlet stores. We have been able to find some great quality clothes at a fraction of the price!
Check out online specials. I can’t tell you how many times we have found coupon codes for $10 off a $10 purchase where you can snag an article of clothing for close to free! These come and go very quickly so you have to check the site regularly to get in on them :).
