Frugal Clothes Shopping

I'm a very big penny pincher; especially right now since we have only one person working full time. What I do is during the summer is go to garage sales, and discounted days at different thrift and consignment shops.

We have one children's store that once a month has a 25 cent day, so I go in and look at the clothes. If there is a stain and it can be fixed, I use shirt paint or patches to funk them up for my daughter. I have yet to have to buy full price items for school for myself or my daughter.

Now teens are a tad harder. You will do so much better on prices, if you wait until clearance sales. Since teens don't grow as fast, shopping little by little all year long works great. Each new season, stores clearance the previous seasonal items. There is no reason to pay full price.
