FMF Reader Poll: Bargain Shopping

If clearance racks, thrift stores, resale shops, affordable vintage shops, garage sales, hand-me-downs and other amazing deals didn't exist, I would probably only have about ten items in my wardrobe. I love a bargain. And, due to my budget, I usually need a bargain to find a deal. I've purchased a ton of items from thrift stores (once bought six skirts for $3!), resale shops like Plato's Closet (great place for dress pants), vintage shops (slips!), and garage sales (just got a purple jacket for $2!), and most of my favorite pieces come from the clearance racks at department stores (BCBG LBD for $30), Target and H&M.

Where do you find your best bargains? Tell us about your best deal in the comments.

I got an amazing vintage camel wool cape with big buttons from Goodwill for $6 a few years ago. Expensive for Goodwill, but such an amazing bargain!

I bought a silk Max Mara shirt for $1.50 and a silk Max Mara skirt for $3 at Goodwill.

Some graphics are ours, most we find somewhere (sadly, we don't usually remember where we find them).

I'm the type of person who goes into a store and heads straight to the back. When I do look at new merchandise, I make comments like "ohh, I will totally buy this when it's half off!"

I also stalk shoe prices on amazon with ookong, getting shoes sometimes at 90% off!

I also use every free panty coupon Victoria's Secret wants to give me. Otherwise I would NEVER spend more than $3 on a pair.

I'll admit, it might be nice if I wasn't so limited by price and could just get what I wanted and not think twice about coupons or clearance - but at the end of the day, I like knowing I got a deal, like I've somehow beat the system.

I've gotten several new with tags tops at Goodwill for $3 each. I'm delighted every time I get complimented on them and reveal the price!
