Fatshionxchange..for those fatshionistas on a budget!

I love clothes! I love shopping for them and putting together new outfits. Unfortunately my budget does not appreciate my shopping habits.  Being a mom of 3 growing boys, I wanted to find a more frugal way to stretch my money as far as possible.  I wanted to get some new items to incorporate into my wardrobe without sacrificing my budget or style. I found Fatshionxchange. This is an online community where you can sell, trade and buy gently used  plus sized second hand clothing.  It is not limited to used clothing, I found several members who sell NWT (new with tags) as well. You have to be a member in order to make a purchase, but there is no cost to sign up. If you are interested in an item, you leave a comment with your postal code (or zipcode) so the seller can let you know what the cost of shipping is. Some members will haggle  on price or you can even offer a trade.  I tried it out and was quite successful. I managed to snag a brand new talbots satin twist tank for 18.60 (us), this including shipping. The original cost of the top was 69.50 (us). The top was exactly as promised. 

Check out the site! You may find a great deal or even a way to make a profit cleaning out your closet!

  1. This is awesome! I hate getting rid of clothes since they cost so much, but this might be a good option to empty out my closet of unused items and maybe, just maybe, find a few "new" pieces. Thank you!
