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 $ !!
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.
