You wanna know what? I want to shop. I want to buy tons of stuff. Like these boots. I want to buy these even though I don’t wear the boots I already own.
And I’m pretty sure I need these brown boots too. Because they’re two-toned (which is unique) and have the zipper thing and the V-Shape thing and on the online reviews a person said they made her calves look thin. I need these.
Part of me wants to go back to my old ways of just getting what I want when I want it.
I kind of want to end the month with bag fulls of new things and 30¢ in my account.
I kind of want to do that.
And, I kind of want to say: “Shit. Screw It. I’m going shopping!”
Instead, I’m going to go against my impulses and I’m going to focus this “need new stuff” energy into organizing a Clothing Swap.
I really don’t want to do a Clothing Swap. I want to shop. But. I guess I want to stay out of debt more and this is a way to get some “new” things without spending anything.
This is how the Clothing Swap is gonna go down.
- Ask a friend if we can use her living room or apartment community room since my living room is too tiny.
- Send out an email.
- In the email I’m going to tell my friends to tell their friends that we’re going to do a Clothing Swap and it’s probably going to be awesome so they should come and bring stuff to swap.
- Everyone brings 10 things to swap. Like, 10 GOOD clothing items. Not 10 shitty things. Stuff you would give your sister or best friend after you’ve gotten sick of it.
- Then everyone will come together on the night of the swap with their items (and maybe a treat too for potluck sweets).
- And then, once everyone arrives all of the items will be on a table or two and then the swapping will begin!
- Then, people will try on some things and find new things and then those new clothes can stay put in those stores and our money can stay in our accounts and we’ll get to have some new goodies for the Fall and Winter and then maybe I’ll stop day-dreaming about those boots up there.
- Bring 10 items. Take home 10 items.
