With spring almost here, it’s time to get your spring wardrobe out. And if you’re on a budget, you may want to forget about buying new spring clothes. Instead, you may simply want to reuse last spring’s wardrobe. Here are some tips for making the most of last year’s clothing items for this year’s styles.


First, figure out what fits and what doesn’t. A year is a long time, so you’ll want to make sure that all of the clothes that you used last spring still fit like a charm. Either get rid of anything that doesn’t fit or put it in storage for another year when it might fit better. There’s no use in cluttering up your closet space with clothes that you’re not going to wear because they don’t fit.


Next, mend whatever needs fixing. Again, a year is a long time, and you may have forgotten that some of last year’s clothing items were broken in one way or another. Learning how to sew on buttons or hem skirts and dresses is a good idea. But even if you don’t know how to do these things, you can still get your clothing mended at a seamstress’s business for a decent price. Instead of paying for all new clothes, fixing the clothes that you have will ensure that you save money and help the environment. In recent years, clothing waste has become a worldwide problem.


Finally, if you do need a few new clothing things, make the most of your purchases. Jeans will go a long way in your new wardrobe, so that’s a good place to spend your money. Likewise, consider buying your new clothing items at a thrift store to save even more. By doing all of these things, you will be sure to have a great wardrobe for spring that won’t cost you too much money.
