Savvy Women Avoiding Purchase: Women’s Clothing Exchange Event and Giveaway


Alright ladies, get your your Coupon Calendars and mark March 16th for a great SWAP event that will help you clean out and update your closet! I love this idea!  What is SWAP?

SWAP is a very simple concept. A large group of Savvy Women Avoiding Purchase clean out their closets, meet at a predetermined location and share their stuff. This is a one for one exchange. For each item you bring you receive one SWAP credit.

Reduce Waste:

Most of us can look around our closets and find extra stuff not in use that is hanging, stuffed, stacked or stashed some where. Look at your clothes, shoes, handbags, scarves, belts …. and see what you are not using. Maybe it was impulse purchase, never did fit you right, just like the other five you already have, too big, too small, something you think you may get back into someday (but someday started two years ago)…… These are all items that are weighting you down and taking up precious space in your closet.

Give with Grace:

SWAP gives you an opportunity to give in several ways. Doesn’t it just thrill your heart to give someone a special gift! Well the things you are not using may be the very item your friend needs. You can get satisfaction knowing you have given a new life and love to your impulse purchase (it is no longer a bad decision when it is perfect for someone else). Perhaps you are finished with all those maternity clothes, SWAP them, and give them a chance to be part of another Mama’s journey (if those clothes could only share their story).

Finally, please don’t be afraid to give more than you SWAP for. The best blessing of all is, the items that are not traded, will get an extra special home in some local clothing closets for women in need. We will see that they are delivered immediately following the SWAP.

Refresh your Space:

Now that your closet is cleaned out and there is nothing scary hiding under the bed, its time for some fun. You have the ability to refresh your space by shopping in a multitude of friends closets in one central location. Take this opportunity to try a new style you were afraid to splurge on, fill in gaps in your own wardrobe, or even find gifts for others.

We know you will find something “New-to-You” while having the chance to share with others too.

What should I Bring?

When choosing your items, please select items in excellent condition and that you would be proud to lend a friend. No damages. No Stains. All items must be checked in clean, pressed and on a hanger (if it hangs in your closet).
