Summer is officially here, so I’m sure you’re storing your coats, jackets and heavier threads to make room in your closet for breezy garments. Besides thrift shopping, one of my favorite ways to update my wardrobe is via clothing swaps. Just like thrifting, it’s an eco-friendly affordable way to introduce new-to-you threads. But unlike thrift shopping, the clothes are free!
Sure you can check out a clothing swap meetup in your area or you can host your own.
