Curbing Clothing Costs

clothing costThere is a little bit more to curbing the cost of clothing than just 'buy it used'.  While that has an impact of on cost and is a foundational element the topic goes much farther than that. 

You can listen to this recent episode of Surviving on Shoestrings to hear my heart and take on the matter and find out:

  • Where to buy it used for the best quality.
  • Difference between Consignment Shops, Thrift Stores and Garage/Yard Sales and Hand-me-downs.
  • Knowing what you need when you find the deal.
  • Methods on how to shop at each place.
  • Knowing sizes without other family members being with you.
  • Used shoe buying measurements.
  • How to check out the clothing.
  • How to care for the cloting once you own it.
  • What really is that LINT in the dryer?
  • Learn basic sewing skills.
  • Marking clothing to hand down.

I go into greater detail on the audio linked above. Hopefully you can hear how we've done it and glean some additional tips for curbing your clothing cost for you and your family.
