I want to have a discussion with you today, because I am not the greatest expert on today’s topic. I am going to go ahead and get this out there. I am 6 feet tall. It is hard to shop for size 14 tall. That is all for now!
Saving on Clothing
1. Clearance racks. This is the one I have the most success with. I love the clearance at Kohl’s and New York and Company. Being a teacher, I have a dress code-nice clothes, no jeans. I also grab a lot of hubby’s wardrobe on Kohl’s clearance racks. Kid’s can be hard to shop for on clearance racks, because you never know what size they will be the next year!
2. Goodwill and thrift shops. I have heard many people touting their magnificent finds, especially in bigger cities. I, personally, can never find any pants there. There must not be too many tall women who donate their clothes. This is something on my list to check out more. I also know that the kids clothing gets picked over really quickly. How do you all feel about it?
3. Hand me downs. For adults and children, hand me downs can be a real source of free clothing. My favorite sweater right now belonged to my SIL, who passed it to my MIL, who passed it to me almost brand new! This can go two ways. If you have a nice sweater or shirt that you just don’t like how it fits, you can pass it along to a friend or family member. I lived in hand me downs as a girl. One of my mom’s friends had a daughter several years older, and I always looked forward to that bag of clothes.
4. Garage Sales. I have to admit that my mom loves garage sales, but I hate them. She can find a diamond in the rough, but all I see is 80’s clothes and kids items. (Size 14 tall remember?) I do know I will use yard sales a source of kids clothing when I have them, because kids grow so fast!
