Even when you get on in years, one fact remains the same: it feels great to wear beautiful, comfortable clothes that highlight your best sides. But this is not always easy. With age, a senior’s income lowers and clothes can get expensive. Luckily for them, there are still ways to buy high-quality clothes, look good, and save money at the same time. If you continue reading this article, you will find out a few ideas on how.
Many people avoid second-hand stores, but there’s no reason why seniors should do this. These stores often sell brand name or designer clothes, but only at a lower price; they’re previously used but in good shape. Home health professionals suggest that seniors should wash clothes bought at second-hand shops before wearing them.
Join Loyalty Programs
With age, seniors will develop a taste in clothes and will find a favorite store or two. If they do, they should join frequent-buyer or loyalty programs. This way they will receive coupons, birthday gifts, and sale notifications from these stores. Have in mind that these programs are entirely free, so there is nothing for seniors to lose.
Elderly who want new clothes at a great price should buy clothes off-season. This means that they should buy winter clothes in the summer and vice versa. If they do this, they will buy clothes at clearance prices, which implies ‘under their original cost.’
Shop Black Friday and Holiday Sales
As you know, it is a custom for big retailers to have big sales on Black Friday and other holidays. Seniors are recommended to buy clothes only during sales. There is no reason for older adults to purchase clothes at full price when they become available for less, sooner rather than later.
