The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Winter Clothing Edition

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been putting away my summer clothes and getting out my winter ones.

Part of this process is a realization that some of my summer clothes are in pretty bad shape – and some of them are simply hitting the rag bag.

What does that mean? It means that throughout the winter, I’ll be looking for summer clothes on discount. Around here, many retailers have already rotated out their summer clothes, but there are still a few items around here and there.

It means I have several months to prepare. Also, since I won’t be clothes-less when summer rolls around, I can take my sweet time finding replacement items, either at secondhand stores or at big sales.

It’s much better to buy clothes when you’re not in a rush to do so. You can save so much.
