Plato's Closet $1 Clearance

One of my favorite times of the year...

Plato's Closet $1 clearance event!
Plato's Closet $1 Clearance Sale
Do you see all of that clothing?? 19 items for $20.66 (high Illinois tax...)

I got 2 coats, 2 pairs of jeans, 10 sweaters, and 5 shirts. Some of the brands include Big Star, H&M, American Eagle, LOFT, J Crew, GAP, Forever 21 and others. I was most excited about the Big Star jeans. I didn't even look at the size and they fit perfectly! (My store does not let anyone try on items during this sale.) Those would have cost me at least $70 in a "real" store and were marked for $40 to sell at Plato's before they went on clearance. They are my favorite brand of jeans!

Check out your Plato's Closet and see if/when they do their clearance event. My store does it in the winter and the summer each year.

So excited to wear my new clothes!

If you've never gone to this event before, let me warn you, it gets a little crazy, because well, people are crazy! My recommendation: become one of those crazy people (just a little!) - grab first and think later. So if you see something that you think it cute, grab it. Later, when your arms are getting tired find a corner and go through what you have. That is when you get a chance to look at sizes, check for damages (like holes or broken zippers), and decide whether or not you really think what you grabbed is cute or not!

Have fun! I hope you'll be able to go to one too!


  1. Wow what a haul! We have a Plato's closest near us in Michigan.. I wonder if they have this same sale.

  2. Stopping by from the Meet and Greet Blog Hop to say hi! HI!

  3. I just went to the nearest one by me because of this post. And I was so disappointed- there were about 20 items left...and some looked like items that goodwill wouldn't even put out! What location in Illinois did you go to? I went to the one in Schaumburg.

    1. No way! That's so sad. I went to the one in OP and they had a TON of clearance. My sister-in-law went to the one in the Oakbrook Terrace and also found really cool stuff.

  4. Thats awesome! So many excellent pieces.

  10. What an awesome score!! Sounds like a ton of fun. And congrats on the jeans! I have a hard enough time finding jeans that fit perfectly when I do look at the size ;)

    New follower from the M&G Blog Hop -- thanks for co-hosting! Look forward to perusing your blog more :)

  11. Hi, new follower! Thank you for co-hosting! hope you will return the favor..

  12. OMG - such an awesome score! I can't believe you got all of that for $20! I've never been in Plato's Closet. Ours doesn't have amazing $1 sales. I think the best deal right now is BOGO clearance items.

  13. New follower from the blog hop!

    I am seriously impressed with your stash! I only shop clearance for my clothes, but haven't tried consignment shops like Plato's before. I will have to check it out sometime, definitely looks like you found a ton of cute stuff!

  14. great items !! :D can't believe that for all those clothes you paid only 20$!!!
    what about follow each other?

  15. I didn't know they did this! Thanks for sharing!
