I have a few pet peeves. 1. People who push their opinions on other people. 2. Drivers who don’t use a turn signal. 3. Paying more for something than I have to.
I’m a bargain shopping by nature. I hate overspending. I think “saving money” has become a pretty clear theme here at But First, Coffee – and it’s because it’s just something I care about. I’m willing to spend money on items that are worth the investment but hate spending on things that aren’t.
When it comes to clothing, I definitely believe in investing in some good pieces. I will spend $100+ on a pair of jeans without thinking if they fit and are comfortable because I basically live in my jeans. Every 4 years or so I will gladly shell out money for a new winter jacket, a must-have item in New England. But, there are other items I just can’t imagine spending the money on. $40 for a basic knit tee? $70 for a cotton tunic? Seriously, you have to be kidding me.
That being said, I have some great go-to spots when I’m bargain shopping. I love going into a store to shop for items so I can try them on, but sometimes time doesn’t allow it. And, sometimes there just isn’t enough variety. That’s where online shopping comes in. With enough time and determination, you can find anything you want at any price. To make it a little easy for you, I’m breaking down some of my favorite spots to check when I’m looking for inexpensive clothing online.
If I missed any of your favorite places, let me know! This list can continue to grow!
6pm is like the Marhsall’s and TJ Maxx of the online world. Get name brands, designer clothes, at fractions of the cost. Tons of optionsevery dayy and always at deep discounts from the original price!
The SPOT to get all your go to basics. They have great quality stuff and sell a huge range of those basic, gotta-have-em items for your wardrobe like black joggers, classic tees, and flowy tunics.
One of everyone’s favorite places for inexpensive items is Forever 21. Personally, I find their online site WAY better than in store…just easier to navigate! That being said, sometimes the quality is hit or miss. I have items from Forever 21 that last years and then items that are washed once and are no good. So, just remember the return policy and if the item arrives and isn’t what you wanted, return it for your store credit. It’s a great place to grab trendy clothing items you don’t want to pay big dollars for.
This has become my go-to spot for special occasion clothing. They have tons of casual stuff too, but when it comes to night out, special event pieces, you can get AWESOME, beautiful dresses and romopers and almost never pay more than $50. For a nice event outfit, that’s a steal. Plus, they almost always have a buy one get one 40% off deal. So snag one of their cute, casual tops while you’re at it. I’ve gotten some of my must have pieces here like this romper, this dress, and this dress.
Amazon is a great place to shop for clothes because the options are ENDLESS. Just be ready to lose the next 3 hours of your life because it’s a rabbit hole. You can get almost anything you want. Keep in mind that prices on items might vary depending on the color you choose. But, they’ll always show you the cheapest color option in the search so if it says “$10” and then you choose the color “pink” it might jump up in price.

I love shopping ThredUp. It’s essentially an online consignment store. They have tons of high-quality secondhand clothes to purchase at deep discounts. And, sell your own as well! I’ve gotten some of my statement pieces from ThredUp and love that I didn’t have to pay full price. Sometimes weeding through everything can be tricky, and you don’t get to see the items on actual models, so you have to use a little imagination. But, overall I love this site and it’s great for deals.
Ok, maybe I’m behind the game but didn’t know they had clothing here until about 6 months ago! Charming Charlie is obviously a great place to get awesome accessories and handbags for a good price, but they also ROCK for clothing items! Tons of basics and versatile pieces for great deals. Definitely keep an eye on their sales as well because sometimes (like right now) they put ALL their clothing 40% off!
ASOS is definitely a mix between great deals and slightly more expensive, so sometimes you have to do some sifting. The nice thing is they have endless options because of their large inventory and carry tons of different styles.
Cato is a great place for what I call “work clothes.” It has tons of options that are perfect for the office but won’t break the bank. I hate spending a lot of money on work clothes (not that my current job has a strict dress code but when I was a teacher I did). I love that you can get work clothes here that look great and don’t break the bank. They also aren’t overly “formal” so you can incorporate them into your everyday wear as well.
Walmart is my new place to shop for clothes. After finding this cute off the shoulder top there, I always give the clothing a quick look whenever I’m there. Not to mention, you can get pretty crafty with the items if you want. You can see all my Walmart Clothing Hacks if you want for how to fix oversized items, make the most of men’s clothing, and find uses for the clearance pieces!
