We all get those days when we feel like we have absolutely NOTHING to wear, when the truth is, we have a whole walk-in closet full of clothes.
It's kind of funny to think about, actually.
I think it's just our excuse to go out and buy more clothes, don't you think?
This recently happened to my mom and I.
She was telling me how she doesn't have anything to wear anymore and I was just like "Mom, are you kidding me? We were just at the mall a few days ago. How can you not have anything to wear when you literally just went shopping?!"
IT DRIVES ME INSANE! INSANE! (Although, I know I do it too. :/)
It's a good thing Catherine is back with yet, another, informative article about cheaper shopping alternatives when you "feel like you don't have anything to wear anymore." (Even if you really do.)
How to dress for minimum expenses?
It has become a ridiculous situation when a woman says that she has a bunch of things in her closet but still has nothing to wear. What to do in this case – to run to the nearest store again? No, you can regularly update your wardrobe in much more accessible and less costly ways. You basically have three options how to dress for minimum expenses and look stylish after all:
1. Dress exchange or flea market’s clothes. It is enough popular fashion movement where the essence of which is that people bring their old clothes, but in good condition, and change them with those who want to wear them.
2. Sell all unnecessary clothes – to friends, relatives or online. Open your Internet shop if necessary. This method of getting rid of unnecessary things can be quite profitable and it has become quite popular just like online payday loans for fashionistas. By the way, these online loans can save your day as well. You can also run a sort of a mini home sale and call together all of your friends, neighbors and colleagues.
3. Buy everything abroad. If you have decided to change your wardrobe radically - you should look at foreign boutiques, especially during the huge seasonal sales. Some tour operators offer their customers shopping tours to Italy or France. Saving on such purchases may be significant. For example, in Milan during Christmas holidays the sales’ discounts can be as high as 80%.
These are all great ideas!
I donate my clothes to Goodwill.
Not only are you giving yourself more space in the closet (wink wink), but you are also helping out by providing clothes for the needy. WIN!
The 2nd option sounds interesting as well.
I know a bunch of bloggers already have Etsy shops where they sell clothes that are still in good condition.
I think it's a great way to get rid of things that you don't want anymore and it's also a great mini side business.
As for the 3rd option, I've actually found some great deals and promos on various foreign online clothing stores!
Most of them almost always have super sales or huge promos going on so definitely keep your eyes peeled.
How often do you clean out your closet?
