Do you only buy cloths that are on sale or mark down?

When you go into a store, do you go straight to the clearance racks first?

If I do shop at a regular retail store, I definitely only go to the clearance racks. But most of my stuff comes from thrift stores and trades or is custom made.

It depends on my mood and my budget. ;) If I have lots of money, I usually buy the clothes and things that I really want even if it's not on sale but there are instances that I'm a sale freak. LOL!!! I would really go directly to the area where everything is on sale. Anyways, who doesn't love sales?!?!?!? ;)

I don't hit the clearance racks all too often for one simple reason: I don't shop in retail stores! Pretty much all my clothes come from thrift stores or clothing swaps with friends. I get items that are usually brand new in quality, for very, very cheap.

I love shopping at the clearance racks. I love getting a good deal on something. It just makes it seem like a better thing if you can get it on sale. I sometimes get something that is not on sale, but most of the time I look around and get the best deal.

I usually look for on sale items but even if they are on sale but I don't like the style, I wont buy them.

If I go to a regular store then yes I would head right for the clearance rack or table. Normally I shop at Church Rummage sales for most of our clothing. Our money goes ever so much further that way. There is enough variety and styles that we can mix and match any number of outfits.

I try very hard not to go into shops unless its absolutely essential, and then I usually know what I am looking for, but yes, whenerver possible I will buy second hand or reduced clothing, there is no point wasting money on clothes.

Not all of the time. Sometimes a particular clothing catches my attention and I look at it first, see if I could afford it. But I also take a look at the bargain bin if there's anything that catches my fancy.

No. I usually go to the section that has the item that I'm looking for. A lot of the stores that I go to just don't have a clearance rack, but I will definitely check the clearance rack before I go. I have to be careful, because otherwise I will buy something not because I need it, but because it's on sale.
