Save Money on your Clothing Budget

Top Resale Thrift Store Clothing & Supplies In Tampa FL
When I decided to take control of my finances, reducing the clothing budget would be a serious challenge for me. Two pre-teen girls plus a teenage girl certainly didn't make life any easier.

Children grow out of their clothing before we can get it home and hang it in the closet it seems. O.K., maybe that's an exaggeration, although not by much! It is simply as likely the item you bought today will never be worn next month due to fashion "issues." Investing in this into consideration, it just doesn't make sense to throw away a lot of our hard earned dollars on clothing expenses.

Additionally it is the reason that acquiring used and new items at budget saving resources is indeed satisfactory. Much of a child's wardrobe is still in great condition once they grow out of, or no longer want to wear, those items. Many times their unwanted clothes are given away, donated to thrift stores, sold at garage sales, or offered at specialty shops.

When I decided to make the most of these resources to save money on clothing and "tame the closet monster", my girls were greatly disappointed. The newest methods of clothing acquisition, freebies, thrift stores, rummage sales, consignment shops, and clearance items weren't exactly their style. My son wasn't much of a challenge. Thank goodness, he's not "fashion conscious".

I found that changing the way I approached them about them made things easier. For instance we don't buy "used" clothing. We buy "previously owned, unwanted, or gently worn" clothing. And, I used to be sure to point out the numerous benefits of shopping at these budget saving resources.

The thrift store where I shop is owned and operated by the National Children's Center , an area organization that provides educational services, early intervention preschool, and day care to infants and young kids with and without developmental delays. You will notice that many of your local thrift stores are non-profit and support worthy charities.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
