7 Sneaky Ways Clothing Brands Cut Costs and Why You Need To Know Them

7 Sneaky Ways Clothing Brands Cut Costs and Why You Need To Know Them

So the other day I’ve been going through Zara clothing rack and the quality of many items I’ve looked at seemed very subpar, especially for that price tag.

I don’t have a problem with affordable brands for low quality – they don’t charge that much for their items. It’s the brands that offer poor quality at high prices that really frustrate me as a consmer. That’s not to say that Zara and other brands in this market offer only poor quality items or that I’ve gotten only negative things to say about these companies – it’s their business strategy and their decision, same as it is my consumer decision to buy them or not. I’m writing this post because I’m convinced that consumers deserve the best quality for their money. Here’s a list of 7 common things that brands save money on and basically make customers pay more than the item needs to cost. Let’s start!

5 Ways How I Deal With The ‘Wardrobe Graveyard’

How to deal with ‘wardrobe graveyard’ – things that just sit there, but we never feel like wearing them? I give you my best 5 personal strategies to deal with it.

It happens to everyone – clothes just sitting in the wardrobe, sad, and almost never worn. It can be a couple of items or a whole bunch of them – it’s not the key issue about it. To me, it’s always been the feeling of frustration and guilt of witnessing all of my unsuccessful purchases not working for me, not giving me any value-per-wear, and being useless. The wardrobe graveyard is always a waste of money, time, and space. I’ve posted before about how capsule wardrobe didn’t work for me, so you can imagine that my wardrobe isn’t minimalistic at all – I like all kinds of items, which makes the issue even more frustrating because my items of clothing don’t go together very easily. Despite these challenges, I’ve come up with my own 5 strategies to keep the ‘wardrobe graveyard’ problem at bay. These strategies don’t involve dividing all the clothes into ‘yes’, ‘ no’, and ‘maybe’ piles or ‘if you haven’t worn an item over the past year, it has to go’, but practical long-term solutions. Let me share them with you, dear readers ❤️

Reducing Waste: What YOU Can Do In Everyday Life To Help Humanity Drown In Waste A Bit Later

What can you do in everyday life to reduce the amount of waste? Instead of just talking about big changes, we can make a differerence by making the right choice everyday!

“The planet isn’t going anywhere – WE ARE” – George Carlin.
I truly find it fascinating that people passionately discuss the climate change and other issues, while taking no actual stance in their everyday decisions. I find it even more fascinating that some people consider it futile to make any effort at all because their input is miniscule compared to the outrageous externalities produced by large corporations. I am convinced that everyone who cares about the environemnt and our future has to do what they can – however small the change is! I am not advocating radical changes that are costly or difficult to implement. My post is about tiny little things that will let you reduce the amount of waste you produce. One small step for manone giant leap for mankind!

Why Capsule Wardrobe Might Not Work For You (Like It Didn’t For Me)

10 reasons why capsule wardrobe might not work for you like it didn’t for me. Is capsule wardrobe worth it?

I love order and organization as much as anyone else. And I love efficient shopping even more. The worst experience of getting ready is the feeling of looking into your closet with a desparate thought ‘nothing to wear’. Well, it’s not like when we feel that way we actually don’t have any physicaly clothes to put on – we simply don’t feel good about putting them on. Capsule wardrobe felt like it would be an awesome idea for me to address all these issues – but then it wasn’t. As always, I’ll tell you why in form of a coherent short list!
