If you’ve got children, you will know all too well how expensive buying clothes can be, particularly as they never seem to stop growing! Fortunately, one bargain hunter mum has shared how to make some huge savings on clothes and shoes in Next, ASDA and Clarks.
Hannah Barsby, 28 from Fareham who is a talent acquisition specialist and mum of one daughter, 6, told money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk: ‘The Next sale is probably one of the most exciting events of the year for me. I usually go mad and stock up, but recently I wanted to make sure I spent less than £50 and I did! £46 to be precise. The RRP was £105.50 which means I made a huge saving of £59.50.
‘In the sale I picked up a double dress pack which was £18 and got marked down to £8.50, a triple sleepsuit pack which was £18 and also got reduced to £8.50, another triple sleepsuit pack which was £18 and got discounted to £8 and a leopard print t-shirt for just £1 which was originally £4.50.
‘Next I found an oversized white t-shirt which had been £6 and was now down to £2, denim shorts with an original price of £14 knocked down to £6.50, a yellow t-shirt which had been £3 but was half price at £1.50 and a twin set of PJ’s which had gone from £24 down to £10.
‘These clothes will last a few years, as I buy in advance for my daughter to save money. I go to as many sales as I can, and I try to attend every Next sale where I buy only essential items. The sleepsuits purchased were gifts for friends expecting children.’
Next isn’t the only store that Hannah visits. She has also picked up heavily discounted clothes and shoes from ASDA and Clarks. ‘A few months ago I saw a blouse in ASDA which had been reduced. I had been eyeing it up for ages and it gave me ‘school summer dress vibes’ but for £12.50 I absolutely wasn’t going to buy it. At £3 though! It was put straight in my basket.
‘While I was there I also saw some Roblox tops for my daughter. She’s obsessed with Roblox but for £16 for the 2, they would not have been purchased at full price. £4 for the pair though. They certainly came home.
‘Another place I shop is Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth, where they have a Clarks shoes outlet. The other week we were about to spend £46 on brand new shoes for my daughter for school, but we found a pair with an RRP of £40 going for £26 instead! They had a huge selection of options and at such a bargain price, I even contemplated buying 2 pairs.’
Other bargains Hannah has picked up include Joules wellies reduced from £24.95 to £13.95. ‘They’re absolutely solid, never leak and are super comfy. They are also a size bigger, so they’re perfect for the months ahead.’
‘For those looking to grab bargains of their own, I would recommend going to every sale possible. Make the time to browse through everything as you never know what you’ll find. You can make some great savings on quality clothing by going to high-end retailers when they have a sale on as you often find items you would never pay full price for.’
Tom Church, Co-Founder of the money-saving Black Friday app, said: ‘Hannah is clearly a pro at finding discounted clothes for her daughter. Browsing through the sales is a great way to cut costs, especially if you plan ahead and buy a few sizes bigger in anticipation of your child growing! Other great places to find bargain clothes include Depop and Vinted, where you can get good quality second hand items for a fraction of the price.’
