Always shop from the clearance rack and out of season. It's the best way to save money.

Style tips from mom? None, I'm afraid. I don't really have any style anyway. But I recently stumbled across Wittlebee elsewhere and would be beyond thrilled to win 3 months!

Best style tip from Mom: "Dress for the job you want, not the job you have"

CLEARANCE RACKS!! That's the way my mom shopped for 4 kids!!

The best style or shopping tips I received from my Mom were...

Wear what's comfortable
Wear only what's flattering
Don't be afraid to wear a little bit of sparkles

With five children, four of which are boys under the age of 10, we are constantly going through clothes! We'd love to win this contest!

My mom taught me that you don't necessarily have to spend the most money to get high quality things, as long as you know your product and what you can afford.

The best shopping tip I got from my mom was to buy kids' clothes a year ahead when you can get them on clearance (e.g. buy winter clothes one size up at the end of the winter season).

I find the best deals at thrift stores, if i'm shopping new, i look for clearance, or good sale items.

I think the best shopping and style tips that I got from my mom were not to shop or dress the way my mom does. She doesn't get rid of anything and has clothes from 50 years ago in her closet that she hasn't been able to fit into for 50 years. Plus, she continues to buy more and more without getting rid of the old.

My mother told me never to buy at the first place we stopped, to always shop around to have a basis for comparisons.

If it's something you don't need, even at a great price, you still don't need it.

My Mom always told me to stay away from trendy clothes and to look for classic styles. By shopping that way, my clothes (and money!) lasted much longer. In fact, I'm 33 now and still have some things I bought in high school :-)

The best shopping tip I got from my mom was to always ask myself "Do I *need* this?" If no, wait 24-hours and consider the purchase. :)

My mom told me about staples (i.e.; black slacks, black skirt, brown slacks) that you can use often because you can put them with a different shirt.

spend a little more to buy quality pieces in classic styles that will last longer than a season

If it costs over $100, sleep on it. If you still want it enough to trek back to the mall the next day, then get it. I've saved a lot of money this way because it kills those impulse purchases.

Best advice: Buy things you LOVE. If you like it keep it on the rack, because odds are you won't wear it. If you really LOVE it you'll be sure to get your wear and tear out of it.

Always check the sales rack first. Do not spend too much money in the early months because they grow fast

Garage sales and clearance racks!

My mom was not a fashionista--she was frugal. My daughter is a fashionista, but by buying used (trick from mom) we sure can stretch my daughter's wardrobe.

When I was eight, my Mom sewed a halter top for me from kitchen towels. I guess her best advice was, "Don't stand in the kitchen when you're wearing this."

It was like a ghillie suit in terry cloth. Other kids were in "bell bottoms" while I was rocking kitchen camo.

Meanwhile, I was more absorbent than anyone I knew.

Buy clothes out of season to get the best deals.

As for style? STRETCH denim....it's not only comfortable, but it looks good, too!

What a fun idea! My moms best tip was to buy next years winter coat in February on close out. We've gotten some great deals!

Invest in a few basics the best quality you can afford. They will hold up longer.

Style type from my mom, there are a few items which are worth saving for and spending a little extra on, like a good winter jacket.

1st, I love Wittlebee! Okay, now my entry: Buy clothes that fit, not that have the number printed in them that you want!

Start at the back of the store, also known as the clearance racks.

Never pay full price for anything. Shop in the clearance racks and always have coupons on you when you go in a store!

best shopping tip: If you love it and look amazing in it, don't worry about the price tag.

My Mom always taught me to just buy the basics for your child when they are small. They outgrow clothes so fast, and you receive so many gifts and hand-me-downs from others. Plus shop the clearance racks for next seasons clothes!

The best shopping and style tips I got from my mom are to look presentable, look clean, look nice, and smell good ("Otherwise the girls won't like you, girls like clean guys")

Mom told me to stick with natural fibers, and I always have! Great advice.

Best shopping tip that I got from my Mom was how to calculate percentages to discover a sale price. The racks at the Air Force Base Exchange store that we always shopped at would have signs saying 40% off or 20% off, and I would repeatedly ask her "How much is 40% off of $19.99?", etc. She taught me to round up to $20 and then multiply times the 4 in 40, to get 20x4=80, move the decimal point and you had $8.00 off of $20, or a sale price of $12.00. This real-life math experience carried over into my schooling and has stuck with me for the 20 plus years I've been shopping since. It seems basic, but I'd bet many shoppers out there still can't figure it out. :)

Dress conservatively. Shop out of season and of course on clearance and at thrift stores.

My mom wasn't really into clothes or fashion and I think sometimes that was a great way to live, simple. She would not buy us name brand expensive shoes/clothes, but something similar, so we had the same great look without spending all of her money! As an adult, I have realized that not being stressed about being what is considered socially "perfect" is comforting!

My mom told me to avoid "dry clean only" clothes. If I think about having to take them to the cleaners, I won't wear them as often.

My best mom advice was to be practical. Sure, I wanted to blow my savings on the fancy frocks, but what I really needed were the classics for work and school. Thanks, mom!

My mother taught me to buy the basics - it would make it easier to mix and match and create all sorts of outfit variations.

My Mother was very thrifty. She had to be, she raised 5 kids. She taught me you can dress with style and class without spending a ton of money. She showed me how clothing should be versatile and should be able to wear with avariety of styles, colors, and moods. Get the most out of each piece you purchase.

A great shopping tip my mon gave me was: if you really love it, buy it. Too often people pass us opportunities because they're worried about the financial ramifications, but there are emotional ramifications to denying yourself something that you really want.

Oh, and pick me!! My son said you should. ;)

Have a friend look through your closet. You should get a few "new outfits" with a fresh pair of eyes.
