A woman has revealed how she saves a fortune each year on her wardrobe.
Laura Tuesday, 35, lives in Essex with her partner and son, while working a full-time job in London.
When it comes to treating herself, the mum buys her wardrobe from charity shops, eBay, Vinted and Depop.
She has been thrifting from a young age and along the way it’s helped her to save £15,000 a year.
Some of her greatest finds include a Massimo Dutti Coat worth £270 for £20 and a £140 pair of Dune boots for £15.
The parent has also managed to bag vintage clutch bags from as low as 50p.
Laura has also thrifted designer pieces including a Versace scarf, a Pollini designer handbag, Kemi Telford dress and Dr. Martens too.
The mum doesn’t only thrift for herself but her whole family and is encouraging everyone to change the way they shop.
She told Cudoni: “Thrifting is a great place to find children’s clothes.
“I have found many items brand new with tags or like new for my son. Kids grow so quickly, often before they’ve worn something.
“The best buy was a new dressing gown for 10p. He loves going into charity shops and never leaves without a new game or toy.”
Laura’s mum and sister also love thifting.
Now sharing advice to others, her tips include trying accessories first, going regularly and taking reusable tote bags.
She also said you should donate what you no longer want, to look at all sizes and department and go with a friend.
The mum added: “Charity shops these days are amazing. They are clean and tidy with friendly staff.
“What’s better than saving money, saving the planet and helping charities at the same time?”
