Isn’t it every girl’s dream to go shopping for free? This is a simple idea you can do no matter where you live. This not only works to get free clothes but also free shoes, purses, and jewelry. They’re called swap parties.

Swap parties are great for anyone wanting to save money. Frugal queens unite!

The idea is you get a list of your girlfriends who want to participate. Everyone goes through their clothes, jewelry, kitchen, shoes, movies, purses, beauty items, decorations, book, and anything else around the house. They bring all the various items to the swap party. No broken or damaged items.

Everyone gets to shop for free. Everything left behind can be donated to a women’s shelter, Goodwill, or any other charity of your choice.

Rules to consider:

  • What items are acceptable?
  • You can pick up to 10 items OR you can’t go home with more items than you brought
  • For big ticket items have a drawing
  • Can you trade items you brought or one or is it a free-for-all?
  • Draw numbers for who goes first?
  • Will certain items be 2 for 1? (For example two books would count as one item)

To make sure your party is a hit you’ll want to have an organization system in place. Have tables set up for items for be neatly displayed. You’ll want a bathroom set up for a fitting room. Decide if clothes will be neatly folded or hung up on a rack. You can get free printable invites here. If you want the full party set, it’s available here in our shop.

Some items you may want to consider having for your party:

  • Full length mirror
  • Hangers
  • Paper or plastic bags
  • Light refreshments

These are so much fun and who can turn down free shopping? This is a creative way to clean out your closet and a perfect excuse for a girls night! So what are you waiting for!?
