Clogged Closets - 04/09/14
I love saving money and I love discovering new ways to help you do the same. What I REALLY love is when other frugal folks take the time out of their busy schedules to share ways to save too. One of those nice ladies emailed me last week and here's a link to the story that resulted.
I think this is a brilliant idea. How many of us women buy stuff on sale just because it's on sale, but later decide we really didn't need it or want it? And how many of us have lost or gained weight with pregnancy or otherwise and have clothes in our closet that we honestly know.... we'll never fit in again? That's what this most recent Saving You Money story was all about. Some smart women decided to clean out their closets and share the loot with friends. With Facebook, more friends told more friends. Then they all started cleaning out. What resulted is the ultimate recycling project... repurposed clothes, and lots of happy gals with some great bargains in tow.
I shopped the sale, they've aptly named, 'Shop My Closet.' I got a bag full of clothes & jewelry, many of which I'll be wearing on the news soon. Guess what, I paid only about $75 bucks. I'm talking a bag full o' clothes. I love that feeling. The retail on all those goods would have been about $300. I got BCBG & some other high priced designer outfits for pennies, many with the tags still on.
Here's a link to their Facebook page-- Shop My Closet.
They tell me another sale is coming in September. Get ready to clean out and join the sale and by all means if you have a great Saving You Money idea, please send it my way via email firstname.lastname@example.org; on Twitter @Stacycase_ or on Facebook. I love hearing from you & truly enjoy sharing your savings advice. You inspire me.
