The less you spend on clothes for you and your family, the more money you have to save or use for bills! Here are several ways to get free or super cheap clothes for you and your family:
1. Host a Clothing Swap: Get a group of friends together and have everyone bring clothes that they don't need or want anymore and let your friends (and you choose) from the clothes. There's a great tutorial located here.
2. Schoola Credit: Schoola is an online consignment website that donates a portion of their sales to schools. Schoola sells men Schoola also offers free credit for referrals, creating a custom collection and new members. Right now, new members can get a $20 credit and you can get a $20 credit for referring friends. If you are interested in getting a $20 credit, please use my referral link here. I've used the new member credit to get several clothes for my son!
3. Thredup Credit: Thredup is an online consignment website. Thredup offers a $20 credit for new members and/or a $20 credit for referring friends. If you are new to Thredup and would like to get a $20 credit, please use my referral link here. You can also earn cash back on any purchases made on Thredup through ebates to sign up, please use my referral link here.
4. Sign-up for Stores Email: Some stores send out credit or coupons through their email. I would suggest signing up for your favorite stores' email program. Boden sent me a $20, $15 and $10 credit throughout 2015 for being signed up for their email. Eddie Bauer also sent me a $10 coupon that could be used on $10 or more. If you find products a little over the coupon or credit, you can get clothes for cheap!
5. Sign-up for Stores Reward Programs: I am signed up for a couple of stores' reward programs. Kohls and JcPenneys send coupons throughout the year to their reward members. I've gotten $10 (off $10 or more) and $15 (off $15 or more) coupons this year. I paired those coupons with sales and purchase just a little above the coupon to get clothes for cheap.
6. Sell/Get Credit for Clothes at Consignment Store: I've gone to consignment stores in the past year and sold excess clothes that my son didn't wear or outgrew. The store credit can then be used to purchase clothing for your kids in the next size!
7. Shop Yard Sales: Yard sales are a great way to get cheap clothing!
8. Enter Low-Entry Blog Giveaways: Blogs often get posts sponsored by companies and sometimes will offer a giveaway to help promote the company. Blogs with less followers will often have low-entry giveaways, which means there is a higher chance for you to win. Giveaway prizes greatly differ, but could include clothing items or even gift cards that could be used to get clothing items.
9. Surveys for Cash/Gift Cards: Fill-out surveys online to earn enough points for gift cards and cash to use for clothing for your family. I use Harris-Poll, E-rewards, Survey-U and Crowdtap.
