Updating the Wardrobe on a Dime

Updating the Wardrobe on a Dime. So, you lost the weight now what?  If you are like me, you don’t have much in your closet!  I just purged my spring/summer clothes that we are all 4 sizes too big to take to the consignment store.

I literally have 0 pairs of shorts, capri pants or dresses!  I have 5 t-shirts and 2 pool cover ups to my name.  While I am happy and excited to be 35 pounds smaller, I have a major problem with nothing left to wear.  Be the frugal Mom that I am that means that I will be doing some major power shopping this year!

Updating the Wardrobe on a Dime:

I will be turning to consignment stores, Kohl’s and the clearance racks at the end of the season.  Since I am still losing, I don’t want to invest in a lot of nice items but just a few things to get me through.  By shopping clearance racks and Kohl’s with coupons and Kohl’s cash I should be able to pick up enough items to get me through.  Luckily with items already being stocked it won’t be long before I will be able to find sales and match up those sales with coupons.

The one thing I know for sure is that Yoga Pants and t-shirts are GONE from my wardrobe!  I am looking for pieces that are stylish and make me feel good.  As a mom it is easy to fall into the routine of wearing sweats and t-shirts.  However, after losing the weight I find that I want to look good and dress more fashionably.  Of course I don’t want to pay a fortune in the process.

One thing is for sure, I am ready to donate all of the yoga pants and I am ready to put a little style back into my closet!  How about you?  Do you have any great tips for finding nice fashionable pieces at a fraction of the cost?

  1. I despise spending money on my wardrobe, due to clothing my constantly growing boys (I have four). I feel like they need to look good for their peers at school. I do find a lot of cute items at low costs at places like Gabriel Brothers and Burlington Coat Factory. I also love hitting up Old Navy when they are having a great sale and I have a coupon.

  2. fashionbug has really great clearance online and you can have it shipped to a local store for free. I find some of their stuff too matronly for me but I get staples from there like jeans and t-shirts. I have a card so I can often pair the clearance with a coupon. I recently got 2 pairs of leggins, 2 pairs of flip flops, a pair of sandals, 2 t-shirts and a tank top for $19. I also shop old navy clearance a lot.

  3. I will also be turning to consignment stores and 2nd hand shops.
    I have always shopped these for my children, but not usually for myself.
    We have a great upscale shop in our area too. If you bring items in and they sell you can get credit to buy items at their shop. So I can take my larger items in and shop for a smaller size.
    Also remember to ask about their 1/2 price days…many shops have a special sale monthly or even weekly. Ours has everything 1/2 price on Mondays!

  4. Hand me your yoga pants – lol. I live in them after work after being dressed up all day!
    It is a good idea not to buy a whole new wardrobe while your still loosing weight. Plus it’s motivation so you can go shopping again =)
