How many of us have clothes in out closets that we don't wear or haven't worn in forever. I still have clothes from High School and a ridiculous amount of random sizes. I have kept clothes for when I am a bit chubby, clothes for when I am losing weight, before baby clothes, post baby clothes... it's insane. Then I complain about not having any clothes. Please tell me your closet looks the same?

Last night, I was out to dinner with a few girlfriends and they asked me if I was going to 'The Swap'? When I found out exactly what it was I was 100% in. Here is what it is... you gather your friends and their excess "stuff " for a fun and thrifty get-together. It allows you and your friends to clear out your closets, score some new finds, and have a party at the same time! Best part... it's FREE. So, I can leave with some fancy new clothes and it cost me ZERO dollars. Brilliant. Why I have I not been going to these parties for years? 

So, the party is tomorrow and I am off to go find as many clothes in my closet as I can. My theory is if I haven't worn it in a year it's going in the swap! I can't wait to tell and show you all what I get. Please tell me if you have you ever been to a clothing swap before because friends I am just giddy about this?

Happy Friday and Happy Swapping!
