If you want to buy better quality clothes because they last longer and look better, or you find certain brands are the only ones that fit you well, try looking on Oxfam's second hand store website where you can search for particular brands and sizes, and you can specify brand new items still with tags on, so you can even get decent bras new at reduced cost- the range of sizes varies depending on what's been donated, but I have seen some of the harder to find sizes as well as the standard ones.

when shopping always take a list - whether its grocery shopping or clothing or whatever a list helps to eliminate those impulse buys that zap our budgets.
Taking a list keeps you to a scedule as well - keeping you on target of where in the store you need to be. Wondering around aimlessly leads to all kind of purchases that you have no intension of getting therefore spending money that is outside your budget. Make the list according to need not want!
Bras are sooooh expensive. As I lose weight and my bras get too big I really hate to spend money on something that will be too big in a month or two. So now when I buy a new bra, I get one size smaller than my band size and use bra extenders on them until my body catches up (or actually down in this case) to the band size. This cuts the number of times in half that I have to buy smaller size bras!
