Spending less time and money on clothes

spending less time and money on clothes

Tonight I’m sharing a brief post about services that have helped me save time, money or both on clothes.

1. Stitch Fix is a women’s styling service.

How it works: After filling out a detailed style profile, a Stitch Fix stylist sends 5 items she thinks you’ll love. You have 3 days to try everything on and decide what to keep. Shipping is free both ways, and the $20 styling fee applies toward anything you keep. If you keep all 5 items, you get a 25% discount.

If you’re curious about Stitch Fix, I’ve written about two of my Fixes and included pictures here and here.

2. Thred Up is an online consignment store for women and children. I’ve bought Banana Republic boots for $20, J. Crew corduroys for $13, and a J. Crew linen sweater (pictured) for $12. I’ve gotten a couple other items I didn’t like, but they take returns. I had to pay shipping, but it’s not expensive for a light clothing item.

I cleaned out my closet and filled one of their postage paid bags with items I haven’t worn recently. They credited me $26, which can be awarded as credit or cash. I didn’t get very much per item, but I needed to clean my closet anyway and I couldn’t beat the convenience.

I could definitely use some help spending less time choosing what to wear once I’ve bought the clothes. It seems like I spend more time standing in front of my closet than I need to. If you have any tips there, let me know!

Have you tried Stitch Fix or Thred Up?

I’m going to read through Hayley’s No Brainer Wardrobe 31 days series for inspiration.

      1. I signed up (and you should get credit.) The shipment arrives November 26th. I’ll blog about it. :) If I get some good stuff, I’ll wear it to our lunch or happy hour date.
