Where you ask? At a clothing swap!
We all have those super cute outfits that just don’t quite fit right anymore or never did because sweet Aunt Nellie can’t quite tell the difference between a 6 and a 16. We can always take them to Goodwill or donate to Hoosier to Hoosier in the spring but when they’re just so darn cute, it’s sometimes easier to part with them if you know they’re going to a good home, like to a friend!
When doing a clothing swap you just need to have someone willing to host the gathering, Oprah has some great tips here. The more people you have, the better! Everyone should bring items that they no longer want but are still in good condition. One of the funnest parts of the clothing swap is trying things on. You can experiment with wearing things you would never have thought to buy on your own and you’ll be surprised at the great things you find, everything from business suits to sundresses!
There are so many good reasons to do clothing swaps:
- It’s fun!
- You get free clothes!
- You get to play dress up!
- It’s sustainable!
- You can also include shoes, bags, accessories and personal care products so there is something for everyone!
