* Avoid wasting money on stuff just because it’s cheap…
Cheap clothes often spoil alot faster and most of the time we don’t need them.
I once bought a tank top for 400 Naira and didn’t ever wear it because it washed off after the first wash. I could have saved all that money and spent it on a nice tank top..
* plan what you need before you go shopping .
Most people are soo Guilty of this.
Most times just going to the market to get foodstuff you see a cloth you like and the next thing it’s going home with you. You could ofen end up not using it too .
Soon before heading out you plan.
* do I need new pants
* what colour mixes well with the rest of my clothes…
Make a list just as u would for grocery shopping.
* Buy brands you already like.
Sometimes clothes at certain companies look better on your body and fits with your personality more than others.
* Do not dress seasonally…
To save money on clothes toss out the fashion rule book your wardrobe shouldn’t rotate through the season.
There’s no reason why you can’t T-shirt and jeans work through the year by adding on a shedding layers to make sure your comfy no matter the weather.
* Don’t be afraid of previously used clothes…
Buying used clothes is a great way to save money, sometimes you can find never worn clothes with their tags still on attached.
The fashion world actually calls it vintage . So think of previously worn clothes as vintage.
