Lately I’ve been feeling a touch dated in my current wardrobe, yet I don’t want to break the bank buying new things. I’ve spent the last couple weeks trying out various discount stores to see what I could do with a little cash.
Here are my top 4 stores/websites of the moment:
1. TJ Maxx
How can you not love this place? If I can invest the time, sifting through the racks upon racks of clothes always nets me something of value. And, oddly, I seem to be able to find things that are relatively unique. They also have the new designer area that while a bit pricier, does have great jeans and other stellar finds. Plus, never overlook the children, toy and home departments.
This is a new spot for me. I always felt I couldn’t find things there in the past so I gave up going. I’ve now gone a few times over the past month and have found some great things. I love their clearance racks. I got a rockin new shirt for under $15. It is also a great spot for bras, underwear and shoes. They even have quite a nice selection of salon products.
I didn’t have much luck with Bluefly in the past, but lately I have found some basics, including a new swimsuit! I get their emails and wait for an extra discount to come through. Recently I took advantage of an extra 15% one-day sale they had and saved even more off their already discounted prices.
4. Gilt Groupe
This one is a little trickier. They send you emails once a sale is about to open, then it is a mad dash to get the deeply discounted designer clothes. I typically don’t use them, but when I saw a sale for my favorite brand of jeans, I scored three pairs for the price of one! Needless to say, I was psyched!
