  • ROSS ! I buy most of my dresses there for 10-15 dollars versus 30 and up at the mall. I practically live in dresses because they are comfy and I always look dressed up. I add a pair of leggings and boots for a more casual look in the winter and cute sandals for summer.

  • Consignment shops are a good option. Some of them sell only designer and/or high-end clothes at discounted prices.

  • rue 21 and forever 21 have really great prices. Ross, TJmax, target. check at your favorite stores for great sales. I buy a lot of clothes at american eagle but I always wait and get them on clearance for much less.
    check to see if you have a platos closet in your town. its a thrift store that only buys brand name and in fashion clothes. and then you can take your clothes tthere to sell and use instore credit, or get cash for them

  • I really love thrift stores. It does take digging, but I have found WONDERFUL jeans that fit perfectly, and some even had the tags, at Goodwill for $5. Especially when you could be losing weight and going through a couple different sizes, it is definitely a cheap option.

  • I shop on eBay. I look at brand new items only and have found some great buys. I also have 3-4 high end brands that I love and search for those brands.

  • Rue 21, you can get tanks and tees for 5 dollars and if you catch a sale you can get shorts and jeans for 12 dollars, they are originally 20 dollars so thats still cheap!

  • thrift stores, Kohl's clearance, TJ Max, AJ Wright

  • CLEARANCE! I shop at DEBs, Forever 21, Aeropostale, Rue21 and all those stores at the mall, but I only surf the clearance and won't buy a shirt unless its under $5 and pants under $10. I find so many good deals. My closet was so full that DH begged me to get rid of some stuff so he'd have room. We have a walk-in closet so it's pretty big!

  • I remembered Coldwater Creek online too. They have a good sized clearance section
