Fall Fashion: How to Stock your Closet without Emptying your Wallet

Every time a new season rolls around, I always get flustered with my clothing options. Things go out of style, pieces fit differently than they did in prior years, and sometimes, you just need a closet refresh. But, when you do need to stock your closet, you do not have to empty your wallet. You can refresh your wardrobe without breaking the bank! Here are a few ways to do so:

Sell Your Old Clothes

Before you even consider buying new things (especially when it comes to clothes and shoes!), you should try to empty out your closet when it comes to the things that you do not regularly wear or use. Get rid of that outfit that you bought for that special occasion that happened a few years ago, the jeans that you got in anticipation for the weight loss that never happened, or the few dresses that you have from a lifestyle stage you went through that you are now out of.

Anything that you have not worn in the past year should head out the door and just know that your trash is another person’s treasure! But, if you are worried about where to send your clothes, let me help you! Your local consignment shop is a great option, or you could try holding a garage sale. Other options are sale sites such as Poshmark, Ebay, and more. Selling your clothes is definitely the best option so that you can make extra money, but if you cannot sell them, at least give them away to your local thrift store or a friend in need.

Find Other Ways To Make Extra Cash

Okay, so there are many, many ways to make extra cash that you can put towards your growing wardrobe. Now more than ever, there should be no problem finding side hustles to help you with your cash flow, but if you do not want to work for that extra cash, I have a simple solution for you: get a collateral loan (or sell your valuables) to Chapes-JPL, located out of Buckhead in Atlanta, Georgia.For over 38 years, Chapes-JPL has been providing their clients with low-interest loans on gold, silver, diamonds, and platinum jewelry, so if you have any extra jewelry laying around that you do not use, it could help you make some extra cash quickly. Chapes-JPL has a commitment to service, confidentiality, and integrity and they are ready to help you succeed financially. They have quite a few options based on your goals and needs and even offer specialty loans such as vehicle loans, handbag loans, and business loans.

Shop At The End Of The Season

We all think about this after the fact, but what if we thought about it in the moment? Instead of buying your summer wardrobe in the spring and early summer months, buy it in the fall, once summer clothes are going out of season. Why? Because you will find amazing deals! Buying new clothes does not have to be overpriced and buying at the end of each season is the way to find some killer deals! There is definitely a trick to this, though. You have to get to the stores at the right time. If you wait too long, you could miss out on the best items. If you go too early, you could end up spending a bit too much, so you have to time it perfectly and this could take a bit of trial and error. Once you do figure it out, you could score some amazing deals!

Check Out Discount Retailers

Another way to score great deals is by shopping at discounted retail stores such as TJMaxx, Marshalls, and Ross. These stores stock overruns or other items they have acquired at a deep discount and they extend the discount to you, so you can find great deals. You never know what you are going to get when you walk in the door, which is part of the fun for those who love bargain shopping, but even though you can get deep discounts at these stores, they can also be fertile ground for impulse purchases and overspending. Make a list of what you need before leaving home, and promise yourself you’ll stick to the list regardless of what non-essential amazing deal catches your eye (unless you actually need that item, which you probably do not).

Take Great Care Of Your Clothes

Last but not least, take great care of your clothes so that you can re-use them for the next season. I know that this is not a way to stock your closet each season, but it will certainly help you keep your wallet full and at the end of the day, that is what it is all about.

Until Next Time,
