Living in a place that has four seasons has its perks, but it also has its downsides. With each change of season, our wardrobes have to be updated as well. While this can be an exciting thing, it is definitely not easy on one’s wallet. Then again, there are some things that you can do to spruce up that wardrobe of yours without really spending a lot.
Have you ever thought of recycling? If you recycle aluminum cans, tires, and other things, why not clothes? And speaking of recycling, maybe you can use the other “R” – reuse.
The idea is to find people who think just like you and organize a little “auction.” Here’s the plan.
Talk to several of your friends who have similar tastes in fashion. It is important that they have similar figures and sizes as you do.
Agree on what kinds of clothes and accessories each person should bring. Perhaps you can be specific about the items that they should bring – the number of tops, skirts, pants, etc. You can even ask your friends to bring food and drinks; you might as well have some fun while you’re are it.
During the auction-party, open each item to bidding. So that you won’t have to spend a dime, use the items that you brought as the “currency.” You can make up the rules as you wish. The bottom line is that all of the participants can get a new piece of clothing (or two) without spending any money!
