Clothing Swaps: Any suggestions?

Stack of clothesAs a member of the Green Team at the Homemakers offices, I’m helping put on a clothing swap. We thought it would be a fun way to get people together, help everyone save a little money and make sure that good clothes don’t go to waste. I haven’t been to a swap before, so I’m trying to find out what makes this kind of event work well.

Here’s what we’re doing:
– Circulating a poster via e-mail to encourage everyone to bring in their clothing (clean and in good condition)
– Collecting clothing on designated days and giving a chit for each piece (they’re shopping credits for swap day)
– On swap day, we’ll lay out all the clothing on a large table, grouped by type (e.g., women’s pants, men’s shirts)
– All the leftover clothing will go to a charitable organization

Have you tried a clothing swap? Do you have any tips? has some tips on building a recession-ready wardrobe; read the story here.
