Retail Bootcamp: Spring Frugal Fashion with Becentsable - Tips



We've been getting some great frugal fashion tips from our readers for our Giveaway with Becentsable for our Spring Frugal Fashion series.

  • Janet - "I recently was able to get two nice tops and a great-fitting pair of Dockers pants at Kohl's for less than $9 by shopping the 75% off rack and using $10 Kohl's cash from previous sales shopping."
  • Sherry - "Buy a couple of inexpensive skirts with lots of colors in them and some inexpensive tank tops. You can mix and match these to make several casual summer outfits. Don’t forget to add a fun necklace to complete the look."
  • Amy - "If I have a blouse or jacket with cool buttons that I'm getting rid of, I'll exchange them with plain buttons on a cardigan or another blouse and create a brand new look."

Thanks for the tips!

Retail Bootcamp: Spring Frugal Fashion with Becentsable

 

This month for our Retail Bootcamp, we have teamed up with Chrissy from Becentsable to help her stretch her money and get the biggest bang for her buck.

Retail Steals-The Challenge


We helped Chrissy at Becentsable and her friend Brooke, her Fashion Consultant, to help  select new Spring/Summer clothes for Chrissy. Brooke is the fashion expert and she will help find clothes that look the best, as well as functional but fun pieces for her much needed NEW wardrobe. Your Retail Helper will find the deals on the clothing and the best stores to shop at.

Stop before you shop:
  • We went through Chrissy's closet to see what she had and what she needed.
  • We found items that she no longer used that could be donated.
  • We took stock of what she had.
  • We made a list of what she needed.
The Shopping List:
  • Pants
  • Dress
  • Dress Shirt
  • Jacket
  • 3 Shorts
  • 3 Casual Shirts
  • Black Sandals
  • Flip Flops
  • Summer Purse (optional)

The Rules:
  • One (1) day ONLY to shop!
  • $300 limit (hopefully much less).
  • Must get everything on Chrissy's list.
  • No more than 20 miles total from her home.

Check back at Your Retail Helper to see if we WON the challenge as well as tips, suggestions and ideas to redo your wardrobe without crushing your wallet!

Don't forget about our Giveaway:
