Life is expensive. And, a new wardrobe is pricey. Why invest your hard earned cash for fash when you can swap?

Tip du jour: create a mommy swap meet.

Research 8-10 friends who have excellent style. Invite them over for cocktails. Everyone is instructed to bring “gently used” clothing and accessories, unopened beauty/grooming products. And, why not add home décor items for good measure? 

Items are organized by category (bags, dresses, vintage, belts, jewelry, beauty, shoes, etc) Participants can swap in accordance with how many items they brought. A festive, chardonnay infused  meal will follow. YOUR money is invested in fabulous, exotic getaway. As it should be.
