Saving time (and money) on shopping for clothes…

Continuing this week’s shopping theme, how do I find time to shop for clothes?  I’m not much of a clothes shopper, nor is my daughter.  So, many of our clothes are purchased online.

If we are looking for pants, especially for my daughter, it’s likely we are going to the store to try on or I’m ordering with free return shipping online.  I have a couple of brands of pants I like and know what size I wear in them, so I can order online.

However, if it’s shirts or a brand of pants that I know what size fits, we love these online options:

thredUp is an online consignment store that offers great quality used (and sometimes new) clothing.  I’ve been pleased with my purchases here.  If you haven’t ordered from thredUp before you can follow my referral link for $10 off your first purchase. is another online consignment store that offers clothing, toys and a few household items.  Again, I’ve been pleased with my purchases here.

Amazon is another place I like to shop for clothing and especially shoes as many items have free return if they do not fit.  This is a huge timesaver for me.

Saving Time on Household Purchases

I was recently asked how I save time shopping.  I shared before that I do quite a bit of shopping online- so I can order when it’s convenient for me (or have it on subscription).  That maybe while I’m eating my lunch.  It may be while I’m waiting on my daughter at one of her activities.

This reader asked for specific examples of what I purchase online, so I thought I would share some of my Amazon subscribe and save items and a few items I order on a fairly regular basis with you.  (The links below are affiliate links.  Thank you for supporting this site.)


Toilet Paper  (This shows up at my house once a month so we do not run out.)

Dog food 

Dishwasher Detergent

These are just a few things I order on a regular basis.  Can you find them cheaper elsewhere?  Probably- but these are things I find it worth a little extra to have show up at my door on a regular basis.

I also order from Wal-Mart and have items show up at my door as well.  I do try and make a grocery run around twice a month.  I’ll add in a quick stop here and there for fresh items.

Do you order household items online regularly?
