How To Find the Best Deals on Clearance Rack Clothing


An anticipated weekend activity for a lot of people is going to the mall to have lunch, grab a movie and shop. Everyone loves getting new clothes. The fresh new smell, the crisp and never worn fabric, something new to wear to work or school and show off your sense of style. There is something that is even more likeable than getting new clothes; getting new clothes at a discount from a clothing clearance rack. Everyone needs new clothes from time to time but it can get so expensive, especially for parents who have young children to shop for. There are many ways to get clothes for cheap and one of the easiest ways is to simply check the clearance racks. Below are some tips on how to find the best deals on clearance rack clothing so that you can save money or just buy even more clothes.

Step 1

You know those flyers that get placed in your mailbox or left at the bottom of your driveway once a week? Don’t just through them away without looking at them. You never know what you will find on sale and, often times, there are coupons for many stores in your area and clothing clearance sales are usually advertised in these flyers.

Step 2

While it is good to check for clothing clearance sales at the local malls, don’t forget to have a look in the independent retail stores downtown or in other areas of your city or town. Many people assume these places are very expensive but sometimes they have clothing clearance sales that see people getting very expensive and well-made clothing at a very steep discount.

Step 3

If you do not see any clothing clearance racks or sales in a store, ask the sales associate if they have anything and chances are, the clothing rack is hidden at the back or lumped in with other regular priced clothing on various racks throughout the store.

Step 4

In late fall and throughout winter, any summer clothing from last season typically makes it to the clothing clearance rack and it is the same for winter clothes which tends to make it to the clothing clearance rack in late spring and throughout the summer. Right after Christmas is also a good time to get some deals on clothing clearance.

Step 5

When searching through clothing clearance bins, do not just buy something because it is cheap. Shop the same way you would if it were regular choice. There is no point in buying something that is not the right color, not the right size or not something that you would normally wear. Chances are, it will just end up in the back of your closet never to be worn anyway and that is not saving money.


Clothing clearance sales happen at most retail clothing stores throughout the year. Most time, the clothing is simply out of season and the store just wants to get rid of it to take in new stock for the upcoming season. Sometimes, clothing may be damaged and that is what it is on sale but usually there will be a tag saying where the damage is and usually, it is minimal.

Clothing clearance sales can also be very fun because you never know what you are going to find. Sometimes the items on the rack are one-of-kind or very rare or were dug out of storage after a few years so you just may be the only person in your town with that item!
