Default Clothing SWAP Party!

I just posted to something LadyLisa had posted and it made me think. You know ladies -- we should really start a clothes exchange on this website for folks coming through -- I'd never really though of it before. Maybe the guys too -- but its probably a little more challenging for you men.

I know a lot of you have sold on eBay -- I just gave most of mine away (thousands of dollars worth of clothes) but wouldn't it be nice if they could exchange them here with others who are on the journey? I mean, I don't have any left to exchange, but just a thought? It sure would have saved me a lot of money if I could have gotten someone else's slightly used 18's, then 16's, then 14's, then 12's, then... well you get the picture. I know there are clothes swap parties that people have -- maybe we need a clothes swap here?

What do you think?

Yes, you can often get insurance cover for your Weight Loss Surgery.
Our own Craig "Big-T" Thompson has been there and done that, and he's written an e-book about it.

I think it's a great idea, and even though I've gotten rid of a lot of mine, I still have a lot left over..

So is there anyone out there that would consider getting it up and running? How would we post the clothes? How would people exchange? Etc... the details are daunting I know and I don't even have clothes left to donate or I would gladly get things started. Thoughts? Volunteers?

I think its a great idea. I was just telling my husband yesterday that I need to hit a sale at the church to please let me know when he sees one. He is a mailman and finds out ahead of time when the sales are. I have lost 46 lbs already before surgery. My 22,24,26s are falling off. I have sewn my jeans all the way up (about an inch or two) on each side. I figured this was a good way to get extra wear out of them but even those are getting loose now. I have like 2 pairs of pants that stay up I hate the thought of paying full price for clothes that I will only be in a very short time. I did say I was gonna live in sweat pants for the next year so i can just pull the string tighter but that wont go over so well at the real estate office I have some clothes(3-4X tops and a few pairs of jeans 24-26s) I could bag up and send off to someone who is need. Anyone have 16s ,and 18s they want to get rid of? I would be interested

I would be interested too. Hopefully soon I'll have some 24 and 26's to add.

Jill, I think that's a great idea. I'm like you, I gave away thousands of clothes, and would have given anything to have been able to get some slightly used clothing. Hey, maybe I still can. Thanks for the idea.

Default i can help

I'm not sure if this has already found a solution, but I would be willing to put up a simple website off of my family domain to help out with this, and to moderate the listings/etc as well.
I think the project would do me well
let me know!
