It is very obvious to all of my family, friends, and long time readers that I love to save money. I try not to pay full price for anything and always look for the best deals!
When shopping for clothes I always looks for coupons online but it seems more often than not, they are outdated or just don’t work for the items I want. It’s such a frustrating process that I rarely look for promo codes anymore and have decided to implement my own Money Saving Tips for Families.
My daughter and I spend a lot of time shopping for clothes lately. Every few months we have to get her new clothes due to her constant growth spurts. We also have been picking up a lot of smaller sizes for me since I have been losing so much weight my old clothes no longer stay up anymore.
- Sign up for a credit card- There is usually some kind of promotion going on and this allows you to save a percentage off of your purchase that day as well as receive coupons for your next visit.
- Ask the cashier about promotions, she may have a coupon book that applies to your purchase and if you are extra nice she may even dig up a coupon another customer left behind that didn’t apply to their purchase that may work for you.
- Shop the clearance racks- Obviously you know that the items on the clearance racks are going to be discounted but usually it’s last seasons clothing. To save money on my daughters Summer clothing, I pick up a couple sizes bigger for the next season from the clearance rack and during the Summer I pick up sweaters, jeans, and whatever else is available in her next size. This way you are not buying shorts in the fall when you will only be able to wear them for another month but you will be stocked up for the beginning of the next heat wave!

- Stay away from the clothing on display! If you are trying to save money don’t even look at the items on display, they are the newest fashions and you will be paying up for these. Stick to the clothing on the floor and don’t miss a rack, you never know what you might find with a little effort!
