Frugal Living: Buying Clothes

Where Do You Buy Your Clothes?

Do you buy them new? Do you buy big-name labels or store brands? Walmart perhaps?

I used to buy a lot of my family’s clothes at Walmart from the clearance racks, great deals there…or are they?

How long do Walmart clothes last?

The ones I bought never lasted as long as my children could wear them!

I have noticed over the years that Walmart clothes weren’t put together very well, after two or three washings the clothes start coming apart, and the last two dresses I bought started unraveling at the seams the first time I washed them.
Not such a deal after all!

Where I Buy My Family’s Clothes

I buy some of our clothes new: underwear, my husband’s t-shirts and boots, and (sometimes) socks.

I purchase the rest of our clothes at yard sales, second-hand stores and, my favorite place, Foothills Flea Market.
You can find very nice clothes at places like this and most of them are hardly worn and some have never been worn.
The quality is very good also, you’ll find name brands and designer label clothes…without the high prices.
Some examples:

  • Carhartt John Deere Camouflage Insulated Coveralls for my son, like new -$5
  • Levis and Wrangler bluejeans, boys and men sizes -10 cents to $8
  • Flannel shirts -10 to 25 cents
  • Socks, like new -10 cents
  • Nylons and stockings, still in the original package -1 to 10 cents
  • Liberty and Sears brand overalls -$2 to $8
  • Winter coats, some new and like new -10 cents to $5
  • Sketchers boots for my daughter, like new -25 cents
  • Dresses, skirts, blouses and shirts by Liz Claiborne, Worthington, St John’s Bay, Jantzeen, Ralph Lauren, Polo, The Disney Store and others; like new -10 cents

We never fail to get compliments on our clothes and my daughter lets everyone know where we buy them. :)

Big Sale

If you live in Blount County, Tennessee or close by; the Foothills Flea Market has all their clothes on sale for 1 penny through the month of March, with new items added daily. They are open Thursday through Sunday, 10 am to 5pm (weather permitting) and are located at 3711 East Lamar Alexander Parkway (321), going towards Townsend, on the left, just before Heritage High School.

We stopped by a couple of days ago and I found two pretty jumpers, a couple tops, socks and brand-new stockings for my daughter; three shirts for my son; and one jumper and four tops for me, all like new.

The Foothills Flea Market has many other items besides clothes; toys, books -10 cents, crafts -1/2 off right now, furniture, tools…something for everyone!

Check out your local second-hand stores and yard sales today, you’ll dress well and save money!

Happy shopping,
