Four More Ways to Save Money on Casual Wear

Building a quality wardrobe is something that you could easily end up spending a small fortune on-if you’re not careful.  However, it doesn’t have to be that way.  Follow along as we share four ways to save money on casual wear in 2012.

Generally speaking, it should be easier to save money on casual wear than it is on business or formal attire.  However, since the average person typically wears casual wear much more often than formal wear it’s not uncommon for the bulk of your clothing budget to go towards casual wear.  This is why if you’re looking for ways to save money, your casual clothing spending is usually the best place to start.

Shop the Clearance Aisle

A great way to save money on casual wear is to shop in the clearance aisles of your local retailers. Just keep in mind that since most of the items that are sold on clearance are seasonal you may not be able to wear everything right away.  Outside of that you can find some excellent clothes in perfect condition there.

Thrift Stores

Thrift stores offer an excellent alternative to anyone looking to save money on casual wear. Thrift stores usually offer a variety of gently worn casual wear at a fraction of what you’d pay if you bought it brand new. However, since thrift stores don’t get their inventory from a centralized source, it’s rare that they get the exact same item twice.  So if you’re at a thrift store and find something that you really like, it’s best to buy it immediately.

Recycling Your Closet

Another way to save money on your casual wear is to re-purpose the clothing that you already have.  Sometimes this is as simple as adding a new accessory to an outfit that you already own.  On the other hand this might also mean altering your clothes with clothing dye or with a pair of scissors.  The underlying theme is that recycling clothes that you already have will allow you to drastically cut your casual clothing expenditures.

Rock Bottom T-Shirts

The final option is one that we feel combines the best of all the tactics that we mentioned above.  Perhaps Emily at Emily Reviews puts it best when she says,

“I know lots of moms who buy winter clothing for their kids in the spring, when they are on clearance. Of course, this means that they have to guess how many sizes their child will grow before next winter, which sometimes works and sometimes not.  Rock Bottom T-Shirts allows you to get those prices every day, and in season so you don’t have to guess how much your child will grow.”
