Are you truly frugal? Do you buy your clothes second-hand? If you are not into buying clothing at full retail price and enjoy thrift store shopping instead, you should probably check out Swango.com. They are an online clothing swap where every single item is only $0.99 – much less than your typical thrift or Goodwill store! And not only are all items only $0.99, but a percentage of that dollar goes to Dignity U Wear, a non-profit organization whose goal is to positively impact the lives of children in need by providing them with brand new clothing. It’s a win-win for both parties, which is pretty cool.
I went looking through the site and found a bunch of stuff I am considering getting, including American Eagle & Gap shirts and some Steve Madden men’s shoes. For a grand total of $6.00 ($2.97 plus shipping of$3.00) I could get some pretty nice clothes. Much easier than walking around the second-hand store for hours, no?
No, the company did not contact me to write about them, I just think it’s a cool idea to help people save money and help the environment by buying clothing used. Plus, if your local thrift store never has anything cool in it, at least here you can find decent clothes that might still be in fashion…while saving yourself a bunch of money!
