Try saving money by shopping at local consignment, charity-sponsored, and "super-discount" shops for clothing, used fitness equipment, kitchenware, etc. You can earn a little $ at consignment shops if you bring "gently" used items and have the shop re-sell them. However, if you bring in a winter coat in the summer, they will probably ask you to bring it back in the fall when they will start selling their winter items. You will NOT get full price, but it is extra $ !!

AS YOU LOSE THE WEIGHT AND YOUR CLOTHES GET BIGGER
Throw away your fat clothes (actually give them to charity and if you have the energy put them in your garage sale) Go to thrift stores and consignment shops to buy yourself clothes in your new size. I have found some great bargains, a few never worn clothes, and saved lots of dollars for a celebration party or vacation when I meet my goal. I would rather spend money on a great vacation then put it into an outfit I may only wear once or twice. 236
Once a month I try on every thing in my closet. Anything baggy or saggy goes either to charity or a large size consignment shop. I then purchase one or two new items and make sure they are a big snug so will fit for a few months. Very motivating as I shrink!
