How To Get A Work Wardrobe On A Shoestring Budget
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you getting ready to start a new job? Do you have a very important interview? If so, you want to look your absolute best in order to make your first impression great. You want to stand out, yet conform to the proper dress code of the company in which you are starting work or are interviewing for. The real question is where do you find the perfect outfit on a shoestring budget? I mean how could a company expect you to go to start work without the proper wardrobe and very little money, right? We all have bills and/or children to take care of and simply cannot afford to go out and buy an entirely new wardrobe. On the other hand we want to look our absolute best and put our best foot forward. A good professional wardrobe is an absolute must-have for everyone, men and women. The good news is there are several options in which you can consider.

Your first option is to finance a wardrobe on credit; although, I would not personally recommend this as you are starting off in debt with a new job. The only way I would see this as a feasible option is if you’ve been offered a position in which you can payoff the tab within the first month that you are working without getting further into debt.

Your second option is to give something up within your budget. You could chose to give up one luxury expense for the first month, then earn it back once you have recovered your initial expenses from your work wardrobe. I would not recommend giving up a necessary item such as a car payment, electric bill, etc. You need these things for yourself and your family to survive.

The third and final option I will discuss I’m sure you have already thought about, why not hit up the clearance racks, discount stores, or even Goodwill. This is the option in which I would chose. You can always work your way to the “normal” racks if you so choose, but who would want to pay full price for anything? I would not, and I don’t. I’m going to share a little secret with you about one of my absolute favorite stores. They always have the latest styles in stock for work clothing, dresses, jeans, shirts, accessories, and even shoes, but the BEST part is that nothing, yes that’s right nothing is over $15.00. You can get just about anything you need for a fraction of the price and even free shipping. So, those super sexy platform sandals, boots, or dress shoes are only $15.00. Amazing I think. So, if you would like to start getting more wardrobe for your hard-earned money please consider all options.
