A WOMAN has revealed how she saves hundreds when buying new clothes by sharing them all with her husband.
Grace Surguy, from Nottingham, loves to hunt for bargains, and recently saved a whopping £764 on a whole new winter wardrobe.
The 34-year-old digital delivery manager said she used to borrow her man’s clothes all the time because on-trend items such as baggy jumpers are pretty pricey to buy new.
So now, Grace and Ryan Kenward buy a selection of clothing items they can both wear on repeat – saving them each a fortune.
“This is a huge money saver for couples! None of my friends in relationships had even thought about this, you save so much on clothes,” Grace told Lovethesales.com.

“Boyfriend-fit jeans and baggy jumpers are really in right now, but are super expensive, so instead of buying new clothes I just ended up borrowing my husband’s as they are really cute and a loose fit for me.”
Ryan got “tired of looking for his missing clothes” after Grace had claimed them all, so the couple began searching for clothes they could share.
And luckily, the pair managed to snap up a range of trousers, jeans and shirts for discounted prices cutting their shopping bill in half.
She said: “Straight away we are cutting our clothing bills in half, and even more when we shop in the sales.
“I then decided to go for some men’s shirts to stop myself from taking the hubby’s. Working from home, we want to be comfortable but also presentable for any last minute virtual meetings.”
The pair’s wardrobe now includes a couple of shirts which they picked up at 50% off each.
They also shopped a few pairs of jeans and trousers which they both wear in different ways.
“There’s so many apps and sites popping up for sharing things like tools, lawnmowers and even musical instruments. It makes sense if you’re living with a partner who’s a similar size and has the same style as you, to share clothes! It’s already saved us so much money,” Grace said.
She added that most brands don’t directly say unisex, so always read the product description for details and hints.
Searching words like ‘gender neutral fashion’, ‘multi-gender’ in the search bar on a brand’s site could help you find what you’re looking for – and there’s more options than you realise, Grace said.
She also recommended looking on larger marketplaces such as ASOS, who has multiple brands available for a wide range of options.
Stuart McClure, co-founder of LovetheSales.com, commented on Grace’s amazing deals, saying: “Demand for unisex clothing has soared in recent months with multiple brands now offering gender-neutral pieces in every collection.
“It’s a win-win for shoppers and retailers, as brands save money on only producing one line of clothing for both genders, whilst shoppers can expect savings that are made at the manufacturing stage to be passed down to them!
“Grace is a real trailblazer, showing couples across the UK how to drastically cut costs on fashion by sharing a wardrobe with your partner.”
