I am proud to say that many of my clothes, especially the ones that I wear often, are hand-me-downs. That means, I didn't pay a cent for them. Sure, I do go shopping every once in a while. And when I do it is mostly for work clothes. But for the most part I am happy to be the recipient of the garbage bags of garments that result from spring cleaning. Whatever I don't take, I share with my roommates or other female friends, or take to donate. It's really been great on my budget and I end up learning that I like things I wouldn't have bought for myself.
So next time you think, "I don't have anything to wear," maybe ask your friends if they need to clean our their closet.
