Learning about thrifty fashion shopping sounds quite easy, but actually can be somewhat confusing. Many have believed they have been doing it for years, but have missed the mark. Others study the advertisements, clip coupons, watch for sales, make lists, and do all the “right” things, yet forget to consider one very important point. This point is one of the basics of thrifty fashion shopping, whether your budget is lavish or austere. It applied equally to the struggling and the wealthy, to the true fashionista and the comfortable old sweats woman. It is relat5ing the price you pay to the amount the item is actually worth.
An excellent example of this factor can be found by checking Kohl’s most current advertisement, giving you summer savings of an extra 15% off and a 1-day Power Shopping Pass that can be used through July 10 for another savings of 15% off.
The first example is for the ladies: There is a feminine ruffle top by Chaps for misses done in scoop neck style with detailing in soft neutral beige for misses. The original price was $40 and it has now been reduced to $28. Paired with it for summer in Columbia is a tiered printed skirt in shades of brown, rust and beige in a subtle floral pattern. Soft and swirly, the original price of $60 had been reduced to $42. By taking Kohl’s Charge 15% discount off, you save an extra $10.50. So, ladies, this is a real thrifty fashion find, since the final cost for a $100 summer outfit is only $59.50, a savings of $40.50.
The same concept can easily be applied to fashions for teens and girls. Consider a plaid jumper for toddler girls from Osh Kosk Bigosh in summery bright rose and gold plaid with shoulder detail. This adorable outfit, originally priced at $26 is sale priced at $15.60 and, with Kohl’s Charge 15% discount; the price is actually $13.26, a total savings of $12.77. A trendy vest with tee for juniors from Mudd, priced at $24, is on sale this week for $15.99. Decrease this amount by 15% saved with Kohl’s Charge for an affordable price of $13.50 for a total savings of $10.11.
This simply rule that may require just a little basic math also applied to men. A short sleeve easy care woven shirt by Chaps, reduced from $42.50 to $21.00, paired with canvas cargo shorts also from Chaps, reduced from $45 to $26.99, plus the extra 15% saved by using Kohl’s Charge brings the price down to only $41.63, saving a whopping $45.97.
So, thrifty fashion shoppers, stop, think, compare, and do a little math to make sure you are getting the very best buys possible. Kohl’s has many of them this week and it s an excellent time to take advantage of them and make the most of your thrifty savvy.
