Because of this new economy where it’s essential to save money, many women have had to alter their shopping habits in order not to give up their love of clothes and fashion. New clothes can help to give us a confidence boost, and anyone who loves shopping will know that retail therapy is the best therapy! That’s why it makes no sense to stop buying clothes all together. Simply start shopping for cheaper clothes that are still high quality pieces! Read this guide to find out how (you can even do it for your family too):
Shop on Private Sale Sites
Even if you aren’t struggling financially, you might feel like paying full price for expensive clothes just isn’t the right thing to do. Well, now it’s so easy to find insider deals thanks to private sale sites. Shopping sites like Secret Sales offer high quality goods for literally a fraction of the price! Don’t be scared that it’s a scam; the retailers make an arrangement with manufacturers to buy some of their overstocked goods. The sales sometimes last only 48 hours, and some are so exclusive you might need an invite or a code from a friend to join! You can save up to 70% using these kinds of sites.
eBay and Gumtree are great auction sites to take a look on before going somewhere else for a full price item you’re after. A lot of things people auction have only been worn once, but you’ll still save a wad of cash when compared to buying brand new.
Sign up for your Favourite Brands Newsletter
If you sign up to your favourite brands newsletter, you could get sent special offers such as discount codes and free shipping offers. But why stop there, like/follow your favourite brand’s pages on social networking sites and you could find even more special deals!
Search Online for Discount Codes
There is literally a plethora of discount/voucher codes online, just waiting for you to find and use them. If you’ve found something you like on a certain website, before going to check out do a quick search on Google by typing “River Island discount codes” for example. Www.vouchercodes.co.uk is a good one to try, as is www.hotukdeals.com. You could end up getting 10-20% or more off your order, but beware; not all of the codes will work so you might have to try a few!
Compare Different Clothes Websites
If you’ve got a favourite clothes website, why not have a look on shopsleuth.com to check out similar but alternative brands? You could find your new favourite shop, and it could turn out to be much cheaper than your old favourite!
Now you can still wear your designer/high street favourites and look great but at a very discounted price. With the money you save you can afford to treat a loved one, family member, friend, or even yourself to another discounted bargain!
