    I buy underthings from Warehouse....probably similar to your Walmart. We have a least 4 second hand gear shops in town so I browse through every couple of months.

    Shoes are dear...but buying cheap is simply a waste of money I find.

    I try to wear old things around the house, usually with a tee shirt and jandals, but never out in public as a rule. Jandals are the thongs of NZ, although thong has a different connotation in the States....it is footwear here in the Antipodes.

    The hospital consignment shop. Excellent clothing as very minimal prices. For instance I have three Harris Tweed jackets that cost over $200 when new. The most I have paid for such a jacket was $18.00. All were in excellent condition. They will outlive me. It is the only place to shop as far as I am concerned.

    Everywhere they sell decent clothes on sale. Thrift shops are great for this. We've bought boutique clothes that would cost tons of money otherwise, sometimes with tags still on. We learned that one gets overflow on certain days - they even get appliances for silly reasons. Damages boxes, one left, the store is getting new models, etc., so they just give them to the thrift store. Okay then! We can live with the outer box having a dent, right? LOL Cracks me up that people would pay full price...

    We also do stuff like go to outlet stores and buy on clearance.

    Though Saks clearance is ridiculous. We go and pretend we have maids and butlers and try things on to see if they will look appropriate at the party, then moan that we didn't bring our tailor and talk about how proud we are that we actually walked into a store like commoners. We do so try to keep ourselves entertained...we did find clearance there. A knit sweater, rather cheap looking, was on sale for almost $700, marked down from around $1200. We took pics. LOL Can you imagine paying that much for a sweater? We found a dress that looked like a slip and tried to read more about the material, but could only find that it was put together by men in a small village who "know the value of balance and harmony in nature." Which I didn't know mattered when it came to a dress, and if they knew about balance, why did it say to keep the dress out of direct sunlight? If I'm paying a couple thousand for a dress, I'm going out in it! Maybe it's because the material was so thin and pale. Why are men in a small villages sitting around making flimsy dresses that can't withstand sunlight anyhow?

    Okay, long answer to a short question. HA! Guess people should avoid shopping with me. It's just trouble if I'm feeling ornery, or really fun if you play along and are good at accents.

    Almost exclusively online. Local men's shop went out of business last year. Can't find 14W shoes anywhere that I would wear. Everything I'm wearing today came in the mail.

    Thrift shops and second hand stores for shirts, jackets, work pants, summer shorts, & shoes. Got some nice clothes at yard sales, as well. Hastings for Levis. Socks & skivvies at Bob Ward's.

    My wife is wonderful at shopping at Thrift stores, she saves us so much money doing this. Although I trouble finding decent mens clothing there. I usually buy at Kohl's, usually pick from the 6-70% off rack.

    I refuse to buy at J C Penny or Macy's (only clothing stores we have besides Kohl's and Sears) since they push the homosexual agenda.
