I love beautiful clothes and shoes, but I also love saving money. Before I had my daughter Ella, I enjoyed spending hours sifting through secondhand stores to find hidden gems – gorgeous, name brand clothing at a fraction of the original price. As a working mom, I don’t have time for that these days. That’s okay though. I found something MUCH better, something that changed the way I shop for clothes.
How to Save Money on Clothes
The problem with traditional thrift stores is they are generally a pain to navigate. Finding something you love in your size can take a LONG time to find. Working moms don’t have time for that! Fortunately, there is an alternative. It’s called ThredUP – it’s the online thrift store that has helped me save SO much money on clothes! It’s easy to search for what you want and if you don’t like it, returns are painless as well. With ThredUp, you can save up to 90% on name brand clothing, shoes and handbags in like-new condition.
I recently landed a new teaching job at one of the top schools in Phoenix, and I wanted some new outfits for my new job. My husband and I are currently paying down home and student loan debt which means we are on a pretty tight budget. So for this little shopping spree, I limited myself to $50. You want to see how I did?
My $50 ThredUp Shopping Spree
At the ThredUp website, I entered my favorite brand, LOFT, into the search bar and selected my sizes in the drop down menu. I hit enter and up came page after page of like-new skirts, blouses, dresses and jeans all in my size. You definitely can’t do that at the thrift store!
After searching through the first few pages, I found five pieces that I couldn’t live without. I loaded up my digital cart and head to checkout. At the top of the page, I noticed a coupon code for an additional 40% – score! I was so excited to see my savings that I took a screenshot! As you can see, I saved a total of 73%. After I applied the 40% off coupon code, my grand total came to $48! How perfect is that!
A few days later, this adorable polka dot box arrived on my porch. After taking a peek inside, I was pretty excited! Everything looked brand new and fit beautifully. Below is one of the outfits I found. Both the dress and the cardigan are from LOFT. I love the unique pattern on this dress, it’s perfect for Fall.
