When clothes shopping, start at home. Many of us go to the store and buy clothes when we already have similar items at home that we’ve forgotten. Do a careful inventory of your clothes before you buy anything, including the ones you have tucked away in the back of your closet or attic. Added bonus: this will also allow you to make money by selling, consigning or donating things you’re not ever going to wear again.
We have all been ripped off. If you want to avoid that sickening feeling in the future, follow these simple rules.
