Frugal living clothes swap party

In this day and age of economic down turn  we are all making do and mending. But what about getting some friends together and arranging a swap of clothes and accessories you're sure you'll never wear again. Eat, drink and swop merrily with these tips:

Make it a true party:

Send out invitations, and serve food and drinks.

Make it seasonal:
Hold your swap party at the start of a new season, when you switch your wardrobes round

Create a virtual- store atmosphere:

Set up a full length mirror and changing areas. Place items in categories: Shoes in one area, accessories in another.

Make sure attendees bring only items they're ready to part with.

Nothing is worse than falling in love with someones item only to be told they are having second thoughts about giving it up

Donate left over clothing : to charities etc .. or in perhaps in my case donate left over costume jewellery to your local school so they can use it in art projects.

Having you got any frugal living tips you can add ?
