I've lost just enough weight that I'm beginning to think about clothing options down the road and how much I anticipate getting new clothes and how much a I dread the expense. I have a friend who is a real clothes horse. She shops a lot at Ross, but also mentioned a web site called BCOutlet.com. I looked at it because I live at least 25 miles from the nearest large size clothing store and half the time they don't have anything, so I just shop from catalogs.
Anyway, there are LOTS of clothing options at wonderful prices. And, I noticed a few things that I had purchased from catalogs before at full price. The "original" price listed at the BCOUTLET.COM site was actual, not inflated to make it look like a better deal.
If you're worried about the cost of buying clothes as you go down in size -- and often that means buying several wardrobes, this might be a good place to shop.
Also, I finally cleaned out my own closet yesterday. I realized that I have over 40 pairs of slacks in 5 different sizes. Won't need to buy any new slacks for awhile.......just need to make sure that I get rid of the larger sizes as I lose so there's no temptation to backslide knowing that I have clothes for all sizes.
