Shop Garage Sales For Summer Clothes


Bronze Feedback Medal for All Time! 107 Feedbacks

I have put on weight since moving to Colorado, and needed new clothes for summer. I have started to take off a few pounds via common sense changes, but don't want to buy new clothes for a project which will take about 6 months, since I like to do this gradually and comfortably. I decided I would keep an eye out for some nice summer clothes at garage sales and this morning, I struck pay dirt.

For the princely sum of $9, I got 4 pairs of comfortable cropped cotton slacks, and 3 tops. Only one top to go, and two outfits are interchangeable with what I already own. Summer shopping done except for the sandals.

Yeah!

My grand daughter (5) and I spend our summer looking through garage sales. She and mummu know the value of buying a stuffed animal for a quarter!!

Yeah, a lot of folks have tons of good clothes up for grabs. Just plan to be a little open-minded. Have a general idea of what you want, i.e. slacks and capris, rather than specifics like two pair black and two pair blue. Happy hunting!

To take in the waistband on a pair of pants that are temporarily too big do this. Make a slit on the INSIDE of the back waistband near each side. Thread a piece of 1" or wider elastic through and pin it on the INSIDE short enough to take up an inch or two of the waistband.

This has worked for me for years of up and down weight.
