With the cooler months approaching, it’s time to hibernate those shorts and pull out the oversized sweaters! I always like to purchase a few pieces at the start of a new season so I can retire some old pieces – but let’s be honest – it’s mostly because I want a new sweater! So I decided this would be a good time to share some of my tips on how to save money on clothing!
1. Shop Online
Most of the time, I’ve found that clothing is cheaper online than they are in store or at least sales occur more often online than in store. So if you see something you love while you’re physically browsing the racks, take note of it’s SKU and search it up online to see if it’s cheaper or if there’s a coupon code you can use at the online checkout!
2. Use Coupons
Coupons really do save you money! It may be extra work or make you feel awkward at checkout, but saving a few dollars here and there will help you out in the long run. Oftentimes companies will send you a coupon code if you opt in for their newsletters or fill out a survey. Free reward programs are also a great way to save money overtime at your favourite stores!
Bonus: If you’re a student, take advantage of student discounts! There are a bunch of student discount programs you can sign up for online, and mention you’re a student when you shop in-store because sometimes you can get a student discount or at least get your items tax-free! (Just make sure you keep your student ID card handy!)
This is the hardest but most effective tip. If you see something you want to get, wait for it to go on sale. I promise you it will and you’ll be glad you did since you’ll be saving a lot of money! The only trick to this is knowing how long to wait for. Oftentimes popular sizes or pieces will go out of stock real quick so you’ll have to be fast when a sale strikes!
