Saving Money on Clothes



Pictured above is a pair of jeans I bought for my daughter on eBay.  You can see they are new jeans with the tags still attached with the original price tag of $36.99. I paid $7.99 for these jeans plus a $5.00 shipping charge, so $12.99 for these jeans. I gave these to her as a Christmas present and so she will have a new outfit when she returns to school after her Christmas break. Over the years, I have bought her brand new jeans from retail stores, but it is great when I can find them in the second hand market for a lot less money.

  2. Great deal on those jeans. And I'm sure your daughter loved receiving them!
    We used eBay this Christmas as well. The deals can be amazing, especially if you know your merchandise. My son gave my two daughters e-giftcards to eBay one Christmas, and that was a huge hit.

    1. She did love them, Lili. That was a nice gift from your son. My daughter would love something like that too. I'll have to remember that one. :)

  3. That is a great find! We always got clothes as the bulk of our Christmas gift(s) when I was a child.

  4. SAMs has great sales on clothes. If they do not sell after a few weeks the prices start going down. I have purchased brand new tips for less than $5.00

    1. I did not know that, Fiesta. I will have to check into their clothes next time I am at Sam's Club. I usually skip by that section. Thank you for letting me know. :)
