Worth Reading: Clothing Exchange and Frugal Fashion

::I loved this post on HeavenlyHomemakers about hosting a Clothing Exchange. Our church does something similar and it's been such a fun way to share our extras, find things we need ourselves–without spending a dime!–and declutter our homes at the same time. I'd definitely recommend trying this out in your community, too!

::My friend, Jen, is doing a fabulous series on Frugal Fashion over on her blog. If you've ever thought that its impossible to look chic and put-together on a budget, you certainly need to check out her posts. The first two are here and here.

    Crystal, thank you as always for your frugal living ideas. That’s why I gave you a “kreativ blogger” award. You can hop on over to my blog and claim it 😉 Hope you are continuing to feel well…you will soon meet your lil babe!

  • I thought her clothing swap idea sounded just great! I’m glad to hear another person say that they’ve participated in something similar and that it went well. It’s got me thinking… (a dangerous thing!). Thanks for reminding me of her post!

  • Emily says:

    Love it! I was thinking of doing this with our playgroup.
    It’s such an environmentally sound concept too. Win win all around.

  • amanda says: is running a great sale. I picked up TWO jackets today…both priced under $7.00 and originally $100+.

    Oh, I’ve never thought of a clothing exchange before…might be neat idea!

  • Our church in South Carolina always did a SPRING EXCHANGE! I LOVED it! People would bring everything from clothing, furniture, yard equipment, household items…you name it, it was brought. All nice stuff no stains or tears. We collected things for a month and then we set everything up and then people came and shopped for “FREE”! You took as much as you wanted and there was always loads and loads of stuff left over that was always taken to one of the local charities. It was so much fun. I was able to clothe our children for the year and it was also a great time of fellowship!
