I usually shop my clothes at the mall, especially when there is a sale going on. It is convenient for me because the mall is close by, air-conditioned and there a lot of options to choose from. There are also times when I buy at surplus shops because clothes there are cheap. It is difficult to find sizes and good condition clothes in these surplus shops though, so I always spend a large amount of time choosing in these stores. It depends also on my budget for clothes on a certain month in which stores I will purchase. If I have extra money I buy at branded shops in malls, but still look for sale events to save money. When I am on a tight budget, I go to the thrift stores and make the most out of the money I have.
