Budget shopping tips

Travel was always my priority in the past, so much so that the idea of even spending £5 on a new top bothered me quite a lot. But now that travel isn't an option and I've spent the best past of the last 12 months locked up inside, treating myself to some new clothes doesn't seem like such a bad idea. 

With everything opening up again, I've gone a little bit crazy when it comes to buying new clothes. I want to make the most of every opportunity to leave the house and with meals, bars, and picnics booked in every week, there are now a whole bunch of occasions to get dressed up!



That being said, I am still trying to be as thrifty as possible when buying anything new - especially with the prospect of more travel on the horizon soon! Here's where I like to look for a bargain when on the hunt for something new:


Amazon 

A couple of times, I've spotted people wearing things - dresses particularly - on Instagram and when I've gone to see where they got it, it was Amazon. I was a amazed because it was definitely not somewhere I would have thought to look for clothes but I had a look for myself and found loads of bits and pieces I liked. I love the print on this dress and instantly ordered one for myself. 



Supermarket brands 

I've always been a fan of the supermarket brands for picking up plain, knitted jumpers although they seem to have caught my attention for the summer this year. There was the red gingham dress from F&F that took over the internet and this awesome cropped blazer set that I'm waiting to come back into stock in my size - much cheaper than the high street versions but just as nice!


Depop

I'm not one for mindless scrolling but Depop has always been awesome if I'm on the hunt for something specific - especially when it's been discontinued! I found two amazing dresses, that were no longer avaliable anywhere last summer for less than a quarter of their original price. 



Birthdays or bank holiday sales 

It's that time of year where I've noticed that I'm filling my basket and then waiting until the next bank holiday before  I even consider purchasing anything online, there seems to be at least 20% off almost every other weekend at the moment which is a nice chunk. This is also helpful if you've got a birthday coming up so make sure you sign up for newsletters from your favourite brands. I've been putting these codes through their paces at New Look and ASOS this month.



Miscellaneous

Then there's all the weird and wonderful ways to find cheap clothes online. Whether that's a strange Chinese website selling questionable clothing for 10p, or a catalogues with credit selling the basics for low prices. With a little bit of research, it's very possible to find nice clothes for very low prices online - plus anything that involves a package of new clothes turning up at your front door all adds to the excitement.
