Saving On Back To School Clothes Shopping For Tweens

It’s back to school clothes shopping time. And that means most tweens are eager to hit the mall to check out and buy the latest styles.  You however have a budget to stick to.  So how can you save on clothes shopping this year?  Follow these tips for a budget friendly back to school shopping spree.

  • Go Second Hand – Don’t be afraid to check out thrift shops and consignment stores, especially ones that specialize in children’s clothing.  You will be surprised at the quality of clothes and you may even find things with the original price check on it.  While this season’s latest styles may not be there, you might find some great deals on classics like jean jackets, coats and sweaters.
  • Love those Hand Me Downs – Don’t limit yourself to the kids in your family.  Create a network of friends with slightly older (or bigger) kids who would be willing to pass along last year’s styles.  This way you’ll get gently used clothes that aren’t too out of date.
  • Go Virtual – Use the internet to bargain shop.  If your tween finds a must have item in a magazine or a store, go online and try to locate it on sale or with some other incentives, like BOGO (by one, get one free).
  • Basics Stock Up – Just like you wouldn’t pass up a great deal at the grocery store, keep an eye out for a chance to stock up on basic wardrobe items like tees, tanks and stocks.  You may find these throughout the year, or at end of season sales.  This way you will have the simple items covered and you can  allocate your clothing budget for more of the items your children really want.

The fall means back to school clothing shopping time.  By following these tips above, you can be sure your budget will stretch a lot farther.
