Whether you’re shopping for back to school or just for yourself, it’s always good to know how to save money on clothes – particularly when it comes to finding the perfect pair of jeans. If you’re like me, finding a pair of jeans that fits just right can be tricky and I often end up spending more money than I would like. However, there’s several ways you can get that perfect pair of jeans for less. Here are my favorite tips and tricks for saving on denim:

Denim for Less Online

I’ve found some absolutely amazing denim savings by shopping online. Of course, when it comes to jeans you probably want to try them on before buying to avoid extra shipping expenses if they don’t fit. So, what I’ll do is find a pair of jeans I like in a store where I can try them on. I then write down the brand, size, and style so that I can search for it cheaper online (if you have a phone with web browsing capabilities, you can even do this right in the store). I’ve found my favorite designer denim for as much as 50-75% off on Amazon.com and The Denim Shop. You can also sign up for free membership with Gilt Groupe and Haute Look to save big on designer looks. When shopping for denim online (especially on eBay), be careful of knockoffs and scams. 

Thrifting for Denim

I’ve also found huge mark downs on quality denim by shopping at thrift stores and consignment shops. If you’re looking for a specific designer brand, you will probably have more luck at a consignment shop but the prices are generally higher. If you’re patient, you might just luck out at your local thrift store!

Swapping for Denim

You can also swap lightly used clothing and accessories for denim using clothes swap sites. You might be surprised by what you can find on these sites. Learn more about clothes swapping here.

I’ve also found some great designer denim brands for around 50% off at closeout stores such as TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Nordstrom Rack. With all the resources available for finding discounted denim, there’s no need to pay full price ever again!

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
