In a previous post I told you how I had found 11 items of clothing for $65.00! If you remember, I returned 3 things, so I had 8 left. These 8 items cost less than $50.00! They are mostly for winter, but there is one cute spring top, and a year-round skirt. I don’t usually post photos of just clothing, but can’t resist showing you what you can do with $50, if you are willing to spend a little time to try things on, and don’t mind saving things for next year. Of course, our March is turning out to be quite chilly again, AND we are going to Utah in April, so I will wear some of these before next year. Yay! Here is what I got:
I have not spent a lot of time trying them on and styling them yet. The photo of me was just a quick try-on, but you will definitely be seeing some outfits soon.
A few more thoughts on shopping the clearance racks:
- Don’t buy something just because it is inexpensive
- Use this phrase to help you remember: If you don’t love it, don’t buy it.
- Don’t just look on the racks which are “your size.” Clothing sizes vary, and different styles fit differently. I literally have things from a size small to a 3XL, and I am neither of those sizes 😉
- Try on lots of things. If you only find one thing that’s okay. Sometimes the treasure hunt is better than others.
- Scan the prices before you check out. Sometimes things get put on the wrong racks, or you may discover that the price is even lower than you thought. 😉
- Make sure you look at the prices. When I am clearance shopping, I don’t like to pay a lot for one item, even if it is 75% off the original price. 75% of $185 is more than I want to pay for a clearance item!
