More Money Saving Tips 43-49

Continued from 99 Money Saving Tips

43. Try factory or clearance shops, you can usually pick up some great bargains and no one but you will know where you bought it or what you paid!

44. If you fancy hitting the shops for a mega shopping trip try and wait until the sales are on, but don't buy for the sake of buying or because you think an item is a bargain price. A bargain is only a bargain if you need it or really will use it or wear it. Also if you get an item home and find it doesn't fit quite right or you aren't too sure after all, take it back!

45.> Go to your local charity shop or dress agency to bag some quirky bargains. Being as many celebrities shop at charity shops you should have good company, and don't forget Kylie's famous hot pants were a charity shop purchase.

46. You don't really need to dress your children in designer clothes as they will grow out of them before they have even seen much wear. You are better off going with hand me downs, supermarket or clothes from cheaper high street stores as they can have some really nice ranges.

47. Take the time to learn how to use a sewing machine, that way you can make your own alterations and also repair your clothes too.

48. Make sure that you take back any clothes that don't fit straight away. Don't let them hang in your wardrobe thinking that you will take them back as you probably won't get round to it an so they will end up being a total waste of money.

49. Don't assume that the cheaper high street stores such as Primark won't have anything for you as even if you don't want to buy your dressy up wear from there they do have a great cheap range of nightwear, socks, Vest Tops and T Shirts so it can be a great place to stock up on casual wear at a low cost.
