I love shopping, like most women. However, as a mom of three boys, I have to be very budget conscious when shopping for myself to ensure that I do not overspend on my budget and find myself in a messed up situation. While my closet and drawers are overflowing with clothes, you would be surprised at how much money I spend on clothes and shoes for myself each year (less than $400). Today, I am sharing some of my money saving tips so you can save money when shopping for clothes and still have a full wardrobe.
I shop sales all of the time. Just last month I was able to score more than $200 worth of clothes at Wet Seal for just $50. I was able to get about five outfits and three pairs of shoes, thanks to an exclusive sale memo that arrived in my inbox.
TIP: Retailers such as Wet Seal, Forever21, and Charlotte Russe do sales weekly. The key is to watch out for the too good to pass up sales and shop them (they usually come once every three-four months). I always know when a sale is really a sale and when I need to wait for the next newsletter to come to my inbox.
Use Cashback Sites
I am so glad that I ran across Swagbucks. Majority of the stores I shop at are partners of Swagbucks so I am able to get a portion of my cashback when I log into Swagbucks first and redirect to the retailer. One extra step allows me to cash out throughout the year so I can have money for birthdays and holidays. If you are not a member of a cashback site such as Swagbucks I highly recommend that you sign up today to get some of your hard-earned money back when shopping.
Use Giving Assistant
Giving Assistant is one of the newer sites that I have been exploring to help me save money when shopping online for clothes for the kids and myself. They have a variety of retailers for you to choose from ranging from Children’s Place to Walmart. They have a mission of saving you more money, so you can better care for your loved ones and charity. This company understands that promo codes rarely work, which causes a lot of frustration. Therefore, they get you a discount with digital loyalty.
Giving Assistant is a free digital loyalty program with more than 1,100 of the largest retailers in their network, which provide an average of 5% cash rewards after each online purchase. The best part is they give you 100% of the commission and you can cash out to your secure debit card as soon as you have collected $1.
