Shedding the pounds is wonderful but buying new clothes can sometimes be a pain in the wallet. I am using a consignment shop to sell the "old me" clothing to. So far, I've made about $300 towards my "new me" shopping wardrobe.
Also, purchasing slightly used clothes during my transformation isn't too bad either. This saves me $$$ while going through my transformation.

Find your local consignment store and get acquainted! I found a fantastic one nearby and when the kids grow out of there current clothes I bring them in to sell on consignment (in good shape, of course). The best part is, when they need new clothes I shop there and just use my account from things I've sold. Don't have to spend a dime! Its also a wonderful way to recycle. My store has a great woman's section as well. There are some wonderful furnture consignment stores out there too.
Losing weight and getting new clothes can be expensive. So I go to consignment stores and even the Goodwill. I only buy new clothes as a reward when I have reached a big goal about once a month.
Free clothes are even better. My family and friends are going through their closet and what they do not wear anymore or can't wear anymore pass them down to me. I recycle them back to them when they lose their weight or give back to the goodwill.
