Updating your wardrobe without breaking the bank

This post was sponsored by Groupon. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

A few days ago, I shared with you one of my newest favorite outfits, and I humble bragged about how it only cost me $17. Because here’s the thing, y’all: I. am. cheap… maybe even cheaper than cheap. To give you an example, I was at a thrift store and saw a pair of shoes I liked well enough for $10. But I didn’t get them because I thought $10 was too much for a like-new pair of shoes. I seriously am that cheap.

Like I also mentioned, I LOVE clothes. I love pinning outfits on Pinterest, I love trying clothes on, and I love hanging clothes up and putting them in my dresser (not to be confused with laundry, mind you). Clothes very well might be my love language, if that’s even possible. The 6th one nobody really talks about because they don’t want to be misunderstood. Come let me give you a hug and tell you that your shirt is cute, because I have your back.

I see people post outfits and share that their pants cost $60 or their shirt was $45, and I can’t fathom that. I keep thinking “I spend $20 at a thrift store and I feel like I’m making it rain money.”

You can imagine that when I buy a brand new article of clothing, it is a big freaking deal. I’m ALWAYS looking for ways to make brand new clothes more affordable. When I walk into a store, I walk right past the displays at the front and past the new arrivals and 20% off sales” and I make my way to the “Additional 60% off clearance” racks. I love when my mom gives me the $10 gift cards you get if you spend a certain amount of money, because I can buy a clearance shirt for thrift store prices. I’m crazy about this stuff, y’all!

The other day, Justen and I were trying to find a code for Redbox (good news – he’s cheap too!) and suddenly he asked me if I knew there was such a thing as Groupon Coupons, so we spent time looking through all of the different coupons they offer. Lo and freaking behold, guess what they have coupons for? CLOTHING STORES!

Not just lame, irrelevant stores I never shop at. That’s the worst, right? When you stumble on a great deal for stuff you have no interest in. Groupon Coupons has coupons for stores I love like Aerie, Macy’s and… wait for it… Kohl’s (HELLO, LAUREN CONRAD!).

Even if you’re not as crazy cheapskate as I am, Groupon Coupons has plenty of great deals you should always check before you buy anything. As if Groupon couldn’t get any better πŸ™‚

What are your tips/tricks for buying new clothes without making your bank account weep?
