Here are different ways to get free new clothes with clothes you no longer wear.
1. Trade clothing at a consignment store like: Buffalo Exchange or Beacon's Closet. They put a price on your garments and then you can use the credit you gain to shop for new clothes.
2. Have clothes swapping parties at your house and have friends and friends of friends over to bargain on what they would like to trade. There are great ideas in, The Fashionista Files on how to plan a clothes swapping party. And online find some hints for swapping parties at: www.myvillage.com/pages/fashion-hints-tips-clothes-swap.htm.
3. Participate in an organized swap with strangers like Wendy Tremayne hosts all over the United States as well as outside of the States. For more information go to www.gaiatreehouse.com/events.htm.
