Living Intentionally: Goal 6

Goal 6: Don't buy new...borrow, trade or buy used products when possible

I have been waiting for months for tonight to arrive, it was finally time for my clothing swap!  Not only is this a great way to get together with friends but it is also a wonderful way to recycle clothes and change up my wardrobe without spending money!  This is just one way that I am hoping to become less of a consumer.

This is the third one I have done with friends and I absolutely love them.  I love watching everyone get excited about the new treasures they find.  I love helping people choose clothes they wouldn't normally pick for themselves.  I love that with just a little bit of work organizing the event and providing a few treats I can bless a group of my favorite women.  I know from my own experiences that the joy continues long past the swap.  Not only is it fun to wear my new clothes but I love putting them on and thinking about my friends that swapped them!
