Clothing Swap

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Pug socks and cute black heels? Clearly, this is a fashion statement waiting to catch on! 😉


Ok, maybe not.

I actually attended my first Clothing Swap this afternoon and tried on a potential pair of “new” heels. I just happen to be sporting my favorite, super soft pug socks! 😉

Before I tell you about the Clothing Swap, let’s talk about the food! 😀


Dips and desserts dominated the spread, which was totally fine by me! I love Buffalo Chicken Dip and Spinach Artichoke Dip, so I loaded up my plate with veggies and started dipping!


I bypassed the wine, but headed straight for the dessert table.


I pretty much sampled one of each! 😉





Ok, let me tell you about the Clothing Swap. It was a lot of fun.

About a month ago, Marie and Steph sent an Evite inviting me to a Clothing Swap, where guests (usually women) bring unwanted clothing to swap with one another. Basically, it’s like Goodwill meets Filene’s Basement.

At first, I was skeptical about the whole thing. I mean, what type of clothing would I get from the swap? And who the heck would want my clothing!? But, once the swap started, I was pleasantly surprised about what ensued.


There were eight women at the swap and each of us brought at least one bag full of clothing.

After munching on appetizers for awhile, Steph and Marie instructed everyone to dump their clothing onto the bed , so they could organized it by size.





We even had an accessories table, which included purses, shoes, belts, hats, jewelry, and the like.


To start, we picked numbers to determine the “swapping” order. One-by-one, we each had a chance to go into the bedroom, check out the goods, try things on, and pick an item for ourselves.


As you can imagine, this process took awhile, so once everything picked a couple of items, the swap turned into a (friendly) free-for-all. Thankfully, there were lots of different styles, sizes, and tastes, so no one argued.


We all found some great pieces!



And some not-so-great ones! 😆

(My sister actually took the orange jumpsuit home with her!)


I cleaned up with my picks! 😀



After about two hours of swapping, we ended up with pile of clothing that nobody wanted, so we donated it to the Goodwill.


Taking home a whole bunch of free and “new” clothing was such a great feeling. But, finding owners for my old clothing felt even better. It’s nice to know where my “donated” clothing end up. And, of course, it’s nice to know where my “new” clothing came from. A Clothing Swap seems like a win-win for everyone involved, so, before you donate your clothing, think about hosting one! 😀

If you want to organize your own Clothing Swap, check out these great tips!



  1. I just hosted a clothing swap a few weeks ago, and it was a HUGE hit! We drank and ate and tried on clothes and had a BLAST! I recently lost 15lbs and needed some new clothes for this size, but since I still have about 30lbs to go, I didn’t want to spend a bunch of money on in-between clothes, so this was perfect!

  2. I did a clothing swap for my birthday party this year and ended up with so much great stuff! I do it after every holiday season too, because inevitably you end up with stuff that just doesn’t fit your style, but will fit someone else’s!

  3. This sounds like such a fun get together! Growing up, I didn’t have a sister/anyone else to pass down clothing to…so I never really had a person to give my gently loved items to! When I went to college, my good friend L happened to be (miraculously) a similar size to me, so she would shop in my closet. I would be so excited if I was able to find some other people to swap clothes with me in my size!
