Hello S&Bers,

We've noticed a few threads recently about trying to cut down on non-essential expenditures, so we thought you might like to take a look at Swishing: clothes-swapping with a touch of glam.

Swishing Week this year will be 15-21 February, and the idea is to throw a Swishing party, or find one nearby to go along to. Swishing is about swapping clothes that you feel proud to pass on. There's usually nothing to pay, and you can update your wardrobe in a sociable and eco-friendly way way.

Have a look at the website to find out more. If you have any questions, post them up here and we'll get the Swishing team to take a look.

Shame there couldn't be an online one set up- I'm a member of an online book swap club, same sort of idea could be used for swishing online ...

.ponders the idea of setting one up .....

How does it work? Does someone approve or value what you take?

Are you only allowed to swap for items of similar value? confused
