Old work out pants from when I was in school - they're even cotton!
Sigh. I think in the back of my mind I still feel like clothes I'm going to sweat in aren't really worth paying much for. I'm working on changing that mind set. And also working on ways to still be frugal about buying workout clothes. I've been keeping an eye out on sales. Earlier this year, there was a great sale at Under Armour and I got a pair of cold weather leggings that I love. I've also gotten some great deals at Fabletics on gym clothes. Yesterday, I was able to use some Old Navy coupons I had on new sports bras and a pair of running capris.

But I'm still figuring out the right balance there. I bought another pair of Under Armour leggings on sale through Amazon and wore them out on a run for the first time this past weekend. And I could tell that they would cause chafing on any runs longer than 3-4 miles. So I guess they'll be reserved for short runs. And maybe not so much with the online purchases for things like that. I might just have to keep an eye out for sales/coupons for physical stores where I can try things on.
I'd love to hear any tips for saving money and still changing out workout clothes as needed. I've read that sports bras should be switched out approximately every 6 months but that seems so wasteful. What do you think? How about things like leggings and tops?
