Clothing is expensive. There's no doubt about that. You work hard every day to make sure your family has clothing and the other things they need, then you are disappointed when the clothing wears out too quickly, gets tears, or stains. You feel like you are hardly getting your money’s worth. This is especially true of young children who are hard on clothes. They are always coming home with holes in the knees of their pants or stains all down the front of them. You wonder what you can do to get clothes to stay good longer so you don’t have to keep dumping more money down the drain.
One thing you can do is buy better quality clothing, like the clothing found at DrJays. The inexpensive clothing you find at discount stores and the typical chains is low quality. It is made this way on purpose so that you will have to keep buying more clothes to replace the old ones. It is a never ending cycle. Better quality clothing lasts longer so it doesn't have to be replaced as quickly. The few extra dollars you spend on good quality clothing is worth every penny in the long run. You don’t have to buy designer brands, as they can be way too expensive, but don’t buy the cheap quality clothes you see on your average shopping trip.
One way that you can save on the cost of clothing is to shop at local consignment and discount shops. They often have discounted clothing that is overstock from a larger chain. You can find some bargains and look good at a fraction of the cost. You just have to learn how to be wise about the clothing you buy and remember that just because something is expensive doesn’t mean it is good quality. Look at the workmanship of the garment and the fabric quality.
