@SoontobeMsL: Organize your closet and drawers! Fold everything, make sures its all put away neatly. Do you have some girlfriends that are roughly your size? You should do a clothing swap- have them over for drinks and ask them to bring some clothes to trade. Also, you could consider shopping for some inexpensive accessories like scarves or earrings- they might help jazz up your old outfits.

i loooove to shop! so in order to prevent myself from having a lot of shopping trips & to help us save money, i’ve made this little rule for myself: i only shop on days i go to work (other than groceries), because after working 10 hours, i’m not likely to want to spend hours shopping and trying things on, i just get what i need and go home. it’s not much fun- but it’s worked for me! you could also try having a clothing swap with friends, new stuff, free, hanging out with friends=)

I know exactly how you feel.  I just got a job a little over a week ago and I need to start saving up for the wedding and moving out.  Unfortunately, I only have a part time job right now, but thankfully I don’t have a lot of bills.  Anyways, I’ve been feeling pretty blah lately and I’m starting to hate my wardrobe.  I don’t feel attractive in anything I wear anymore.  So, I’m going to have to fight the urges to clothes/shoe shop when I get the paycheck.  

Sorry, didn’t mean to thread-jack.

But I agree with elivt.  Clothes swapping would be a great idea and work perfectly if you have friends that are around your size.  Other than that, I would just envision the outcome that will take place when you do save your money.  A beautiful wedding.  A place to call your own.  It’ll be so worth it in the end.

My advise to you is to go to Savers in West Roxbury…especially if you are looking for dresses and stuff for social functions.  Even though this is a thrift store, I always have pretty good luck there…I have a closet full of awesome dresses that I got there for less that $10 (and I believe they always have a color tag that is 1/2 off).

I am in the same boat with money, and I find that even though the clothes are not new, they are new to me and give me the same kind of feeling…seeing something different in my wardrobe!  Good luck!
