Everyone wants name brand clothing, but having enough money to buy these things can be a challenge. You will never be able to tell the difference between someone who shops at high-end retailers and someone who shops at a discounter. The same clothing is available if you know where to look.

Things You Will Need

Internet connection.

Step 1

Buy on auction sites. Sites like eBay and Craigslist offer items that are brand new or gently used. You can find huge discounts on these sites if you are persistent in your searches. You can also put ads on Craigslist for discounted name brand clothing.

Step 2

Go to consignment shops. You can go into these shops and find name brand items for less than five dollars. Noone should be ashamed to shop at these types of stores if you are getting a big enough discount. Most times you can find an entire wardrobe for pennies on the dollar.

Step 3

Organize a clothing swap with friends. Friends often organize clothing parties, where they will trade out clothing. You can pick up different items without paying any money for new items. Outsiders at work will think you went shopping when you simply exchanged items with your friends.

Step 4

Shop on key days. Everyone knows about black friday and various shopping days, but it's hard to get up that early in the morning. If you go online and search for the top retailers and up coming sales, you can get ahead of the competition.

Step 5

Shop at garage sales. If you go to nice neighborhoods where you know they have good items, you can find really good name brand clothing for pennies on the dollar. This option can save you a lot of money but it takes more time.

Step 6

Shop online. You can find more deals online than you ever could in person. Online shopping has went up sharply since its arrival. Huge discounts and the ability to buy direct from the manufacturer are advantages of buying online.
