Clothing can easily eat at your budget and that doesn’t include the extra expense of dry cleaning. I used to love shopping, and even though I was thrifty, when I was working, I needed to look my best. Now that I work from home, it’s no longer a necessity and I do feel guilty when I buy a new outfit. So, whenever I can, I try to get my clothing for free. Here’s how to do it.
ThredUp—You can earn so much free clothing just by referring others. Sign up for ThredUp here and start referring your friends and family so you can earn $20 for each friend!
Another way to score free clothing with ThredUp is by sending your gently used clothing to them (they also accept kids clothing!) They are picky, so make sure the clothing you send is in good condition.
Swagbucks. Swagbucks is a site where you earn points for things you already do online like searches and watching videos that provide helpful tips like DIY ideas. You can then redeem your points for gift cards for a plethora of online retailers. I paid for all our Christmas gifts last year with the points I received from Swagbucks.
Ebates. Ebates is a site that offers you cash back on many online shops. Once you sign up, you’ll find coupons, deals and specific cash back amounts for each of the stores on their site. Then you click on the store that you want to make a purchase from, shop like you normally do and when you buy something, you earn cash back in your Ebates account.
I often use my cashback to purchase something, and since I’m usually able to wait for the money to accumulate in my account, I’m able to get an item for free or at a huge discount.
What are your ways for getting clothing for free or next to free?
