Being able to express yourself is definitely one of the best things about clothes. The process of putting together an outfit for the entire week is a fun one. Yet the combination of clothing items and accessories points to one depressing truth: trying to be fashionable is expensive.

However, wanting to be stylish doesn’t mean having to drain your bank account. There is always a way to dress cool; you just need to know what they are. This article will serve as your guide to the best online resources you can use to save money on clothing.

Evernote

The simplest way to describe Evernote is that it is a note-taking app. However, there’s so much more it can do. One of its best features is the ability to “clip” anything you find good on the internet so you can get back to it anytime you want. You can think of it as flipping through a magazine, finding a stylish look you’d like to try later, then ripping that page out for keeping.

The question now is: how can doing this help you save money? You can use the app to make a list of every single clothing item you own – pictures included – then tag them accordingly. This comes in handy when there’s a particular look you’d like to copy and you’ve got this itch to go shopping to recreate that look. Before you do, you can do a search on your Evernote to see if you already have the necessary items. Sure, it won’t be the exact ones seen on a model but at least the idea is there.

Coupon apps and sites

Coupons help you save money. They can be handed out in print form or in today’s modern world, through apps. The good news is that most of them are available free of charge. The bad news is that there’s quite a lot of them so making a choice can be daunting.

Although it’s not restricted to retail shopping, Yowza is a pretty good option. You can find lots of offers from leading retailers, each providing you with an option to not spend too much on clothes. The app also allows you to know about the biggest sales in your area.

If you’d like to use your desktop or laptop to look for deals, there are some great sites you can use as well. One of the best resources for a fashion-conscious person is Shop It to Me. It can be best described as your personal shopper since you just have to provide it with details such as your size and your preferred brand then it comes back to you with information regarding a relevant sale.

Since a lot of shopping is done on the internet these days, there are also options that allow you to save money while doing so. RetailMeNot is a good option as it offers a set of tools that make searching for deals easier. For example, if you want to go online shoe shopping you can filter your options to just that. That search can be narrowed down even further if you choose to see deals offered near your location. The site also gives you an option to pick a discount type: percent off, dollar off, or free shipping – just to name a couple.

eBay

This online marketplace has long been a destination for hard-to-find items. Fashion trends repeat itself. Yes, the 80s have come and gone but every few years or so you see some items from that period resurface. If you had that item but gave it away, you can try finding a similar kind on eBay. There’s a pretty good chance you’ll find something close.

Newsletters

Big department stores and some mall stores often stage sales where you can really get good discounts. If you want to know those dates so you won’t ever forget about it, sign up for an email newsletter.

Surveys

Receipts may be proof of purchase but it also pays to read every single thing printed on there. Some stores ask you to complete a survey and by doing so, give you a discount the next time you shop there. So if you’re a frequent shopper in that particular store, it makes sense to take that survey. After all, it offers you a chance to save in exchange for a few seconds of your time.

Wanting to be stylish shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. Using the online resources here can help you look great while also helping you save money.
