Every time a new season rolls around, I get really excited thinking about all of the new styles that the weather allows. While i’d love to go out and get a new wardrobe every time, that’s simply not feasible or financially friendly haha. I’m sure I speak for the vast majority when I say that even buying a few things for the upcoming season can break the budget.
Trying to be a conscious adult and make smart financial decisions (lol), I decided to try & find some budget friendly options that could allow me to grab some new season styles without draining my bank account. Let me let you in on a little secret, 80% of the time when you see people wearing expensive things, they were absolutely discounted in some way. I mean really, who can afford to (or want to) spend hundreds of dollars on a dress?
Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I adore a good splurge (helloooo handbags & shoes), but most of the time i’m a bargain shopper. There’s just something that feels so good about getting a good deal you know?
Below, i’ve listed some of my favorite retailers where you can get clothes DIRT cheap. You won’t believe these prices!
Okay so I know some people are definitely sketched out by the fact that this site is almost ALWAYS running a crazy promo (it’s a too good to be true kind of thing), but i’m telling you, their clothes are awesome! While they may not be the best quality, their styles are always spot on and the clothes fit great. They also always have a GIANT clearance section too which is awesome. I’m talking shirts for under $4, you can not get better than that!
Now I know that there is a lot of controversy surrounding SheIn but i’ve only had positive experiences ordering from there. If you haven’t been on SheIn before, head over to take a look at the stock pile of inventory they have. Seriously, I never knew a brand could carry that many things on one site, it’s a little insane! A tip: every time i’ve ordered, i’ve found the sizing to run a little small. For example, if i’d normally get a medium in a top, i’ll grab a large just to ensure that it won’t be too tight. Definitely air on the side of caution with their sizing – measure before you buy!
Now I know that Target is a classic but their sale prices are SO right. I’m telling you, next time you go in target, try not to browse the “new” full priced section and head straight to the clearance. Many times, they have racks that are up to 60% off the regular price, and you can get them even more discounted by using their “Cartwheel” App.
4. Century 21
If you’re looking for something designer, Century 21 is your go-to. I first stumbled upon this store with my boyfriend Zac in Philly last year. We always got off the train near one of their huge (literally giant) stores and never knew what was. When we walked in, I instantly loved it. Century 21 is almost like an a department store for designer goods? There are giant sections for jewelry, shoes, handbags, and clothing. I’ve scored some of my favorite designer items from C21 for over 60% off.
5. TJ Maxx
Everyone loves TJ Maxx right? While I used to shop there consistently as a kid, as I got older I kind of forgot about it. When I went in there recently, it was just as good as I remembered. While they may not carry a ton of name brands, their prices are so cheap & their styles are always trendy.

If you guys know of any great bargain stores or places that have excellent sales, please let me know! I’m always looking around for the next great deal.
Thanks for reading, xo.
