For anyone who is trying to be more frugal, the lure of a fresh wardrobe this season can be too tempting to resist. Fashion is one of those areas of spend where plenty of savings can be made if you know where to look. The trouble with fashion though, is it is all so alluring. There is a real danger of overspending if you’re not careful. Fortunately, we have the easy guide to kitting yourself (and your family) out for less:   Closet Audit Many fashion purchases are made without any planning whatsoever. You simply see something you like on offer and buy it because it seems to be a bargain. But did you really need another shirt or pair of shoes in that style? To maximize what you have already spent, audit your closets. Remember, there are only seven days in a week, and you’re only likely to wear a maximum of two different outfits per day. Related image

  Categorize your wardrobe items so you can see where you have duplicates and where you have gaps in what you need. Create a pile of all the things you’re really not likely to wear again and start listing it on auction or classified websites. This could be a really handy source of income for buying the items you think might still be missing. Much of it may simply be last season in style but still in good condition for someone else.   Mindful Shopping The sales are designed to rev us up and get us excited about parting with our hard earned cash. However, if you go with a shopping list in mind, you’re more likely to come back with items you genuinely need. This could save you a fortune each year, and spare you from selling hardly-worn items again next season. Can’t wait for the sales? Use vouchers and promotions relevant to the wardrobe essentials you have on your list. You can get this code for footwear and many others at specialist websites for free. clothes, fashion, retail

  Budget If you’re wary of spending much at the moment, why not allocate a portion or percentage of your earnings each month to clothes shopping? This will give you a maximum figure to spend. You might withdraw that much from the ATM so you can see exactly how much cash you have left for the month should you spot a big sale sign! Sure, you’ll have a few disappointments from time to time. At least you won’t have a credit card bill costing you interest on items you didn’t really need. Using credit but not paying it off immediately means your bargain could end up costing way more than the original retail price. Buying only what you really need might take some of the excitement and fun out of clothes shopping. It might also help prevent crammed closets full of items you simply won’t wear. If you’re not sure this approach is for you, why not try it for one season to see how you get on? Where else do you make savings on fashion?
