Save money on Cloths

I know, I'm a gal too. And I love to shop for cloths. But, I learned a couple things along the way. I'm going to outline for you my rules for saving money on cloths and you will be saving the environment too with out any effort!

1. Don't buy trendy clothing. Keep it classic. Keep it edgy but still wearable for at least another year.

How does this save you money?
You spend less cash buying cloths every season and less money on gas making emergency trips to the mall.

How does this save the earth?
You have the clothing for longer therefore less waste in the landfills. Less trips to the mall and of course, less support of the sweat shops that actually manufacture the clothing.



2. By clothing that doesn't need dry cleaning.

How does this save you money?
No dry cleaning bills

How does this save the earth?
Dry cleaners contrary to popular belief, use some pretty harsh chemicals. You are contributing to the pollution by giving them your garments. You will also save a dry cleaning bag that will probably get thrown out as well as those go awful metal hangers that I'm sure you don't want in your closet.




3. If you are fortunate enough, don't dry your clothing. Hang dry baby!

How does this save you money?
Your using less energy, less wear and tear on your dryer which means it will last longer, and less wear and tear on your clothing, so you buy less frequently.

How does this save the earth?
Again, less energy being generated.



4. Please Please separate your white from your darks.

How does this save you money?
You won't ruin you favorite white cami and therefor feel the need to buy another one.

How does this save the earth?
Less waste produced from clothing that the goodwill or other second hand store because of dye stains. Most second hand store won't take your clothing if it has rips or stains on it.

Keep these in mind as you are shopping.

.. From my closet to yours ♥
