2. Because something is damaged, you don't have to get rid of it. Having a hard time with a zipper? Are the linings in your jackets or pants ripped? Visit a tailor. A tailor can repair your lining and zippers for a small percentage of the cost to buy new clothes.
3. You always hear that shoes make the man (or woman), so don't just keeping wearing rundown shoes because you can't afford new ones. Take them over to a cobbler for repair. A new a heel and a great shine will make your shoes look new. (They repair handbags and even luggage too.)
4. Try dry cleaning less for some cost savings and still keep your clothes looking fresh. Dress shields are a perfect way to keep sweat stains off of your clothing and dryell is like dry cleaning for pennies. You buy the do-it-yourself dry cleaning in the grocery store and use it in your dryer.
5. If you do shop, hit the sales; even try consignment stores. Find something at a great price, but it's not a perfect fit? Head over to the tailor who can alter a garment for a custom fit and you will still save money.
