Clothes Budget Shopping: Greenville, SC

It seems my kids are constantly outgrowing clothes so much so that I’ve kind of given up on keeping them fully stocked. If there’s a good deal on jeans, shorts, t-shirts, or sneakers, you can bet those items are going in my cart because someone at home needs them, no question. It’s only gotten worse as we’ve entered the teen years. So, I’m always looking for ways to save money on clothing.

Deals and Coupons at Big Box Stores

Don’t overlook rewards programs, coupons, and apps when clothes shopping. These little things, especially when combined with sales really add up.

For example, did you know that you can return Amazon items to Kohl’s, and not only will they handle your return, but they’ll also give you a $5 coupon to use on anything in the store? The Kohl’s clearance sections are often very affordably priced making it possible to get a shirt for just a dollar or two after that coupon. Seriously, my husband’s winter wardrobe is predominantly thanks to Amazon returns at Kohl’s.

Kohl’s also has a rewards program that sends you coupons for your birthday and based on the number of past purchases, which can also add up.

Use Apps

If you’re shopping at Target, don’t forget to check the sales in their app, which may not show up on signs in the store. There are big discounts hiding in the app and you don’t get them without it.

Check out coupon rebate Apps like Ibotta and stack them with store deals whenever possible.

Food Budget Shopping: Greenville, SC

Grocery Delivery and Pick-up

One way to save money is by ordering groceries, which sounds strange because there is often at the very least the addition of a tip or delivery fee to consider. However, when ordering groceries it can be easier to stick exactly to your list of needs and leave impulse items on the shelves. We have a list of grocery delivery and pick-up options in the Upstate.

Clearance Sections at the Grocery Store

If you do head to the store in person, learn how your stores handle clearance items. Did you know if you head to the back of Lowes Foods you’ll find a bakery clearance shelf and a pantry items clearance shelf? My kids love to stop here because they know I’m much more likely to pick up that specialty bread item if it’s a dollar or two and not $5. Lowes also has clearance dairy and deli items located in their refrigerated sections with large red stickers on individual items with a price drop. Look for them and you can really save.

Shopping from local farms

Shopping from local farms can also save you money, especially if you are buying items that are in season or in bulk. This might mean purchasing and freezing gallons of berries during pick season, or purchasing a side of beef cut to order once a year.

School & Education Savings

School Supplies: Don’t forget we have a list of places where you can get free school supplies in the Upstate!

Teacher gifts: Yes, we have a list for that, too. Here are some ideas about what gift to get your child’s teacher and we even have some low-cost and totally free ideas that teachers love.
