The secret to saving money on clothes shopping?

Knowing when, where and how to shop the sales! It takes a little planning, but as most saavy shoppers will tell you -- the savings and the satisfaction of scoring 50% to 75% off new or designer clothes are well worth it.


Shopping the clothing outlets

With the average savings at discount outlet malls and factory outlets averaging about 37 percent, prudent buying might get you the same percentage on discounts at local department store sales. Word to the wise: For the best bargains, timing is important as outlet sales start around the time local store sales end.

Which brings us to the savings to be had at seasonal sales at your local department store...


When to shop for clothing

Shopping smart also means knowing when to buy what at seasonal sales throughout the year. That's when department stores are desperate to clear their shelves to push new merchandise. Prices naturally plummet, giving consumers more reasons why it always makes sense to shop off-season.

Buy swimsuits in August, for example and save big. The best time to buy jeans? That would be October, when the back to school rush is over. And don't forget the bargain hunter's dream of late December after Christmas sales on just about everything, including hats and scarves or shirt-and-tie boxed gift sets.

As brides-to-be already know, December/January is also bridal season featuring the best buys of the year on wedding dresses.


Shopping the online clothing clearance sales

As ever, shopping online offers the ease of browsing the stores right from home. Today the competition for your attention is fierce as online retailers clamor to offer free or cheap shipping, stellar customer service, and/or generous return policies. Plus, don't forget to look at major department store online clearance sales pages to find the real bargains!
