Whether you love buying new clothes or you hate it, saving money is always a good idea.
We’ve shown you how to save on summer swimsuits. Now it’s time to think about your fall clothes and make some wardrobe updates for the latest trends.
The average American spends about $1,800 on clothes each year. But you don’t have to spend a lot to have a fresh fall wardrobe.
Let’s take a look at some smart tips for clothes shopping on a budget.
Cold Hard Cash
Wondering about how to save money on clothes? It might not be popular to carry wads of cash, but you’ll spend less when you only spend money you can see.
Something about physically handing over your hard-earned dollars to that teenager behind the counter hurts more than swiftly swiping a credit or debit card.
When you run out of dollar bills to exchange for clothes? Stop shopping.
You’re less likely to spend more than you have with you when you use cash.
Coupon Like a Pro
As a kid, you probably watched your mom clip grocery coupons from the newspaper. Today, couponing for clothes is cool and digital.
Most stores today have regular coupons to download to your phone. There’s no need to clip paper coupons and carry them with you.
One of the best places to buy fall clothes is Target. Whether shopping in-store or online, never be without Target promo codes & coupons.
Use websites and apps and make sure you always travel with current coupons to save money on your fall wardrobe.
Rent A Wardrobe
One of the most straight-forward clothes shopping tips is not to “buy” anything at all.
Every fall clothing collection should include a few staples. Dark denim, boots, and sweaters or cardigans are a must-have.
But when it comes to a big event, try renting your outfit.
Choose your outfit online, have it shipped to you, wear it to your event, then return it to the online retailer.
You’ll save money on clothing by renting. And you’ll enjoy a larger selection of options for a memorable dress for your cousin’s wedding.
Dry cleaning adds an unexpected expense to your wardrobe. You’re paying an ongoing fee to wear your own clothes.
Choose fabrics that can be washed and dried at home. Many business casual pieces are now machine washable.
Some suits are also machine washable and less expensive than a traditional dry-clean-only suit.
Save money on maintenance and choose a fall wardrobe that you can clean at home.
Clothes Shopping on a Budget Can Be Fun
Make a game out of it! See how much money you can save and how interesting your wardrobe can be when clothes shopping on a budget.
After you get your fall wardrobe set, save money on your makeup, too.
No matter your budget, stick to it and enjoy your new fall wardrobe!
