Have a fashion swap

Want new clothes or accessories but don't have the extra cash to buy them? The odds are good you know plenty of people in the same boat. Organize a swap meet with a group of friends and have everyone bring their tired fashions, unworn clothes and old jewelry, and then swap, trade or barter to your heart's desire. You'll acquire some new-to-you items and it won't cost you a cent.
