Saving money on clothes

Right now with River growing like crazy, my belly expanding at a rapid rate and getting clothes ready for Finn. I am constantly buying clothes it feels like. I use to love clothes shopping when I was a teen, that’s where literally my who pay checks would go, now I cringe at the thought of having to buy more clothes. Saving money on clothes is much easier with these tips I’ve learned.

Thrift shop

I had bought a few clothes for me and River at the thrift shop before, but never found anything amazing. Just this last week though I found a huge local thrift shop with amazing clothes and deals! I got River 16 clothing items for about 33 dollars, me a sun dress and high heels for 12 dollars, and Cody a pair of pants for 4 dollars. All in all I spent about 50 dollars after tax. 50 dollars at the mall would get river maybe 3 outfits in total. Now her summer wardrobe is complete and she should be good until either her next growth spurt or Fall. I need to still build up my maturity  wardrobe and build up Finn’s clothing stash, but those both can wait a while.


Clearance and Deals

Sometimes you really just want some new clothes of your own and that’s okay. I like to shop for River clothes when my favorite stores are having sales. A few months back Crazy 8 had an amazing sale. You bought one item full price and the second for .89 cents. Now it’s not as frugal as a thrift shop, but I got some super cute modern clothes for her at a great price. I tend to buy my clothes on the clearance rack at Forever 21, because it’s my favorite store and I hate paying full price.

Make it yourself or Mend old clothing

I learned to sew right before I had River and fell in love with making her clothes. I also found if I got the fabric on sale it cost me less to make her clothes then going and buying some. Cody tends to get holes in his clothes so I mend them constantly. Sewing is a hobby that has really benefited me to learn.

Buying clothes doesn’t have to cost a fortune if you do it right. Just look for the best deals and you’re family will be ready for the seasons to come.
