It's that time of year again, when I drag out last year's goodies and donate the duds that I never did wear and pick-up some new fun spring clothes at my local Goodwill. Goodwill is a great way to recycle clothes and get a great deal, but I like the idea of free even more than cheap, plus I'd love the opportunity to hang out with my friends and neighbors. For this very reason I am considering hosting a clothing swap in Baltimore City. I'd like to gauge a general interest, so if you would be willing to participate please comment so that I can get a rough estimate. Also, if you have any friends that you think would be interested, please pass this post along. I'd like the swap to be open to men and women. I think that the more people we can get, the more opportunity we'll have to find new sizes and flavors of ready to wear or alter goodness. I'll post details as this develops and if it's a small group, we'll use my living room. If I can get a real group of friends I have a local place with plenty of room in mind.
Chronicling my adventures in proving that less is more. I'll learn to refashion/recycle clothes, prepare gourmet meals using as many natural/basic/raw ingredients as possible. I'll learn to spend less, live more, and reclaim those things that are truly valuable in my life.
