How To Get New Clothes Inexpensively: Clothes Swap!

Here's part of the clothes swap group (sorry it's blurry!) - we are missing a few!

Here comes Janelle from Comfy In The Kitchen with her bag of clothes!

Each girl chose a section of the room to display their clothes.

Clare from Peak 313 Fitness scored my Easter 2009 dress!  It fits!  Hooray!

Look what I found!  Gorgeous!

Becky has on a new t-shirt, necklace and shoes (plus an arm full!)

Here's what I wore to church on Sunday - my brand new blue shirt and new necklace - free! (the skirt is from a resale shop - so this is a $6 outfit minus the boots - which are Payless!)  Everytime my friend Kelly wore this shirt I admired it - now it's mine!  Thanks Kelly!

I got some serious accessories! This matching new scarf, purse and earrings - JACKPOT!!

These are fun!  Some more accessories -  purse, shoes and necklace!  I did not take pictures of everything - but I had about 7 more shirts, 2 skirts, some flip flops and more!

Does your closet need a spring cleaning - clean it out and encourage your friends to do it too! Then invite them over for a swap!  We had SO much fun and lots of laughter!

We finished all our swapping out with 2 Chocolate Chip Pies that I made - but of course - they were Janelle's recipe!  It was SO fast, easy and delicious - you gotta try this recipe sometime!

Walk with the King!

You are very lucky to have such a big group of girlfriends that look like they are all about the same size. My gals and I vary so much in size, we'd never be able to pull this off with success :) Maybe an accessories exchange!

This looks like so so much fun! We've done it with kiddos' clothes before, but I've never thought to do this with mommy-stuff :)

Thanks for sharing this idea of a Clothing Swap! I'd never thought to do it in a small way like that :) A few ladies and myself are organizing our second clothing swap with several of our adult Sunday school classes at church in which we include women's clothing & accessories, maternity clothes, men's and children's clothing too! We've decided that whatever doesn't get taken by someone goes to a local Rescue Mission (serving the poor, needy and those coming out of addictions in a rather poor large city in our area). We're excited about how the Lord might grow the swap (possibly to include the needy in our local community?), but I would also enjoy doing a smaller swap such as you've suggested :) Thanks for your continued encouragement to Live Well!

I recently had this idea, but wondered how it could be pulled off...and you did it! Wowzers - great times! :)

I agree with Getz and Priscilla, you are blessed to have a group of friends with similiar sizes and tastes. The group I have is such differant sizes - ranging from size 0 to size 24, it would never work. I've heard of people doing this before and wondered how it would work. Now I see - ya gotta hang with people who are the same size!! :-) I should also say, I'm not a garage saler or a thrift store shopper so, this doesn't fit me personal way to shop anyway but I'm glad it worked for you!

Yay! That was so much fun and I have worn several things from it already! To those of you who commented about sizes of girls...we actually had a diverse group of girls as far as size, height, weight, and body type and somehow we managed to make it work..its possible!:) More than anything I was happy to see my unused clothes being enjoyed by someone else (like that purple dress in courtney's pic-wish it still fit!!lol) It was super easy to organize and lots of fun so I say try it out!!! Im sure we will be doing it again in the future!

I just love those old-fashioned looking white and black shoe/boots or whatever they're called. :) Too cute! Looks like a wonderful good time was had by all -- what a great idea! If only my friends and I all wore the same size...

My friends and I have been talking about doing a "swap" for a while now. Thanks for the inspiration!

We did a "homegoods" swap one year, mirrors and framed pictures, all kinds of fun things for the house. That way you get around the size issue.

Great idea! I have to ask though...are you wearing a nighty in the group picture?

Oh I see in the first picture you had on a sweater. Haha. I was confused! :)

This makes me really miss the clothes swap that I used to host with my neighbor :( Too bad we had to move but another one is starting to brew in the back of my mind. I love clothes swaps!
