Did you know you don’t always have to pay for clothes? I’ve been able to get so many clothes for free through the years (both for my children and myself). Here’s how I’ve been able to get free clothes.
Get Free Clothes
Have a Clothing Swap With Friends
Some friends and I have done this before, and it’s lots of fun! You can make a fun day of it by getting together at someone’s house and bringing all the clothing you’re willing to part with. Everyone takes what they need/want and the rest is donated.
Let Friends Know You’re Open To Receiving Free Clothes
I have been on the giving end and the receiving end, and this works well with kids’ clothing, especially. It’s a win/win for everyone. 🙂
I’ve had several sweet friends who generously shared clothing with us, especially when our kids were younger. I also occasionally get hand-me-downs from my oldest daughter!
I think this is kind of fun, but it’s not as simple as the other options. I love taking one item and turning it into something else that I need or would like better. I’ve done this for my daughters by taking a larger skirt and turning it into a smaller one for a younger girl. And I love tutorials for turning menswear into a useful piece of women’s or girl’s clothing.
All you have to do is create an account with Zulily and they give you a referral link that you can then share with friends in an email, on Facebook, or on a blog. I have been able to get quite a few outfits and also home decor items from Zulily for free just by sharing my referral link. You get a credit whenever your friend’s first order ships!
ThredUP also has a referral program you can use when you sign up with them. Share your link to get credits to use towards free clothes!
When you sign up through my referral link here, you’ll get $10 in credit and I’ll get $10 credit! I just placed an order earlier this week, and it cost me absolutely nothing. Even the shipping was covered by my credit.
We’re regularly able to cash in our Swagbucks for Amazon gift cards. We recently got one for $25! You can then use that gift card toward some free clothes on Amazon.
