How To Spend Less Money on Clothes and Avoid Waste

How to spend less money on clothes and avoid waste. Learn to look after your clothes by understanding the washing care instructions with this handy infographic.

// Avoid throwaway and fast fashion trends. Choose pieces you can mix up with more fashion led accessories instead to achieve the latest looks  – or even better, develop your own signature style that won’t need to change as the wind blows

// Always, always check if an item is dry clean only before you buy it. This is the one thing that I constantly forget to do and I have a whole section of my wardrobe that is ‘things I’ve worn once before I can’t be bothered to get them dry cleaned’. When you’re shopping on a budget, this is definitely something that could sway you not to buy.

// Brush up on your washing symbols. The folks at Data Label asked me to share the survey that they carried out with you guys – can you believe they found out that 56% of people were confused about the care instructions on their clothes? Well, yep – I have ruined a gorgeous silk top by sticking it in the washing machine instead of paying attention to the label! You can see the full survey results over at Laundry and Cleaning News. Thankfully, Data Label have created this amazing infographic to make taking care of your purchases easier so you can spend less money on clothes and avoid waste. I had no idea those drying symbols even existed!

How To Spend Less Money on Clothes and Avoid Waste

// Use Pinterest to come up with multiple outfit ideas to create a capsule wardrobe from a few key pieces. Instead of feeling like you need to buy something new, shop from your own wardrobe and style up a new outfit using items you would never normally wear together.

// Spend more on quality essentials like a great fitting pair of jeans that washes well and basic tops that you can wear again and again without the quality failing. It might seem like a no brainer to buy the cheaper version of something, but it’s a false economy. Having to replace these pieces less will save you money as well as looking after the environment and avoiding waste.

What tips and advice do you rely on how to spend less money on clothes and avoid waste?

The Best TV Shows on DVD To Make You Laugh Out Loud

The Best TV Shows on DVD

I don’t need to tell you guys that we’re suffering through some bad times right now and when I went to see Impractical Jokers live earlier this month, something Sal Vulcano said during a joke really stuck with me. He was talking about how at the moment everything is crazy, everyone is lying to each other, no body knows what the truth is and it’s a really bad time, but in these dark times their stupid show provides a bit of light relief and a bit of a laugh for people just for a moment – I love that and completely agree. It’s so important to laugh now, more than ever, just to take a break from the crazy world out there.

HMV asked me to tell you guys about their film & TV offerings to buy on DVD and I’ll be honest, I didn’t know they started selling on their website again after they shut down their online shops a while ago. I popped over to see what they had to offer and I was pleasantly surprised by some of their TV box set prices so here are the best TV shows on DVD to buy for a little pick me up:

As you guys might already know, one of my unlikely heroes is Del Boy from Only Fools & Horses, a happy-go-lucky buffoon who always believed one day he would be a millionaire, no matter what life threw at him. You can get the whole Only Fools & Horses collection of 7 seasons, including all the special episodes, for less than £35! Plus it’s not even available to watch on any of the streaming services, so that’s a great buy! They always repeat the same episodes on TV. In my opinion, this is one of the best TV shows on DVD and even of all time!

While you’re there, check out The Office US box set, another show that’s not available on any of the streaming services – less than £30 for 9 whole seasons! Michael Scott is one of my all time favourite characters, who somehow manages to make me feel sorry for him even through he’s such a cringeworthy jerk! Haha!! We blasted through the first season in one evening when I was bought it for Christmas a couple of years ago, it’s such an easy watch, though it does get more painful as time goes on.

In memory of Gorden Kaye you can soak up some ‘Allo ‘Allo nostalgia for just £14.99 for all 9 seasons. Man, this one takes me back! When I was a kid we would howl with laughter on a Sunday evening after dinner at my Nan’s… God knows how I even understood some of those jokes! We even went to see it live at the theatre as a family – those were good times.

What are your favourite TV series that really make you crack up? I’d love to add some more to my list!

Loves x xx
