Spring clean your wardrobe and get free clothes by hosting a clothing exchange party

Green fashion tips with clothing exchange parties

Have you ever  heard the saying that if you haven’t worn something in the last year, you probably won’t wear it ever again? So why not spring clean your wardrobe?  Clear out those drawers of shirts that pinch under your arms and jeans that hug inappropriately tightly.  Empty the closets of scarves, gloves and jackets that looked great in the store but never worked right when you got them home.  Gather them all up and throw yourself a clothing exchange party.

I recently went to one and it inspired me so much that I  couldn’t wait to share it with you.

It’s so simple! Call your friends, coworkers or family members. Everyone has to bring a suitcase or whatever bag you can muster up, full of unwanted clothes.  Spice it up by asking everyone to bring a bottle of wine.

Then, everyone takes a turn presenting the clothes they have to give away and you exchange.

I got a great bag, jean purse and cashmere scarf out of it!

Best of all, everyone benefits. You’re able to get cool new clothes for free, save the landfills, make your girlfriends happy and you get a “girls night” out of it.

Host a clothing exchange party this weekend!
