Sam’s Shopping Tips

    Samantha Cameron

    Whatever it may be, shopping is something one cannot avoid. Whether it’s food, clothing, etc., some things just need to bought, but that doesn’t mean you have to over pay! Here are my favorites:


    Texas people- how awesome is H-E-B?! Even if you don’t coupon from a newspaper, you can easily coupon there. Their store coupons offer not only savings, but a lot of times free products. Take advantage of these! Be sure to follow Kassie on She’ll post all of the great deals she’s found for the week at H-E-B.

    Children’s Clothing

    I’m a mom of three boys. Nothing stays clean here. I learned a long time ago, buy used! My favorite local children’s resale shop is Twice Upon a Time located in downtown New Braunfels at 347 Main Plaza. Not only can you find some great deals on clothes in great condition, you can also sell your clothes there too! Win-Win!

    Women’s Clothing

    LOVE Clothes Mentor. The closest one in our area is located in Selma across from the Forum. I cannot even begin to calculate the retail value of what I’ve gotten from there. Thousands I’m sure at a fraction of the price. Everything from Kate Spade, Tory Burch, J. Crew, banana republic, LuLaRoe, Ann Taylor, Kendra Scott, lululemon, and the list goes on and on. The employees there are super picky and make sure only things with tags or things that look like they’re new but without tags, hit the floor. All 30%-70% off retail prices, sometimes more!  Same deal here, you can also sell your items here, for even more savings or cash in your pocket. It’s an absolute favorite of mine!

    All Types of Clothing

    Another favorite of mine is Poshmark. You can buy all types of clothing on here and various other items.  Sellers control the prices. What I like about this site over others, is that if something isn’t how it is described or isn’t shipped, you can get your money back through Poshmark. This is also a great side hustle to do if you don’t have a lot of time, just post pictures, add a description, and stick in the mail when it’s sold.
