Spring Cleaning Tips and Tricks: Clothing Swap

What is more frustrating than looking into your jam-packed closet and feeling like you have nothing to wear? We simply cannot think of anything. Thankfully Spring is the perfect time to get inspired to clean out your closet, de-clutter, and make room for something new.

Getting rid of your old clothing can be hard to do, so to make things a little less daunting we suggest holding a clothing swap party. A clothing swap is a great way to get your gal pals together for a fun, budget-friendly night. Not to mention it is the perfect solution to get out of a wardrobe rut, and get inspired without spending a dime.

Simply, invite over your friends and have everyone bring a few pieces that they don’t wear anymore. Your friends may have some questions about what kind of items bring so share some guidelines for what types of items to bring. Consider the following items:
  • Anything you haven’t worn in the past 6 months
  • Pieces that no longer compliment your style
  • Items that don’t fit you like a glove; if it's too big or too small-- bring it!
  • Things that are tattered or torn
  • Special occasion dresses
The best part is, if you give something away and change your mind, you can get it back with a simple phone call! But let's be honest, you will likely forget about what you gave away because of all the new clothing you received in return. Don't forget, nothing is off limits here. Once you've cleaned out the clothing you never wear, dive into your accessories and handbag closet. Happy Swapping!
