The Good Life For Less: Clothing Deals

Some students have already hit the books and headed back to school, but others are just a week away. If you haven’t gone shopping for back-to-school clothes yet and you’re looking to save some money, check out some of the easy ways that could save you some cash.

Try Swapping

A budding fashionista can cost a lot if she wants to follow all the trends. With a little time and patience, you can try out many different styles by swapping. Here is a list of some of the great clothes swap sites.

Some work by using a direct swap, others you earn points/dollars for what you want to swap (based on the value, condition, demand, etc.). You’ll want to check each site to see which one might work best for you.

Friends And Family Sales

These F&F deals are usually most prominent in the months of November and December, and then again in the spring — but at least one store (Old Navy) is extending their sale out. With this coupon you can get 30 percent off (Exp. 08/31).

Looking for other F&F sales through the year? Bookmark this page.
