I was reading this post on Lifehacker today, and it made me think of how I’ve been going through pants at an alarming pace. I get my clothes from KingSize Direct, as size “50-something” pants aren’t typically found in brick and mortar stores for less than $60.00. By the time a pair of pants is delivered and washed, I’m ready for the next size down. This is getting expensive.
As the article points out, shopping at thrift stores in upscale neighborhoods can yield upscale finds at bargain basement prices. As I’ve never been one to shop for clothes outside of a catalog, I have no experience with this. I’m writing mainly to share the idea with you as you go through the process of needing smaller clothes, and to see if you have any war stories to share.
