    i have been buying my clothes from charity shops in the last few week, like most people moneys tight at the min so rather that pay a fortune for new clothes i have been gettting mine online and in charity shops. is know its not trendy but i dont see the point in paying 30 pound for a pair of jean i want to be out of in a month. is anyone else having clothes problems?

    girls and clothes problems seem to go hand in hand!! I mentioned early to someone that selling your old bigger clothes on ebay helps goes to the new clothes fund try bootsales aswell you probablys get a few things there too :)

    I love charity shops! I volunteered for a Mind charity shop a few years back and I got loads of brand new and tagged jeans from there :D

    I've just bought 5 suits for work off ebay for £27 (inc p&p), one suit was only .49p:eek:

    I'll definately be shopping there again:D I must admit I haven't tried charity shops yet but I can see it coming.

    I *love* charity shops, I like to customise my clothes anyway and make them unique. I could spend all day wandering round, rummaging for bargains :)

    I would have no problem buying from charity shops but am still too big to have much choice :( but luckily there are some chain stores that sell bigger sizes at a reasonable price including Matalan.

    Some charity shops do have bigger sizes if you have a good rummage. I found a pair of New Look inspire bootcut jeans still with tags for £6, size 24 too.

    I love charity shops too, I'm looking forward to having a rummage when I'm closer to goal...I have plenty of clothes in a variety of sizes from when I 'went up the ladder' so to speak... so I should be ok for a while.

    I am another charity shop lover!!! I prefer it to E Bay, because I like to see and tryon before I buy. All my local charity shops have changing rooms. I go once a fortnight or so to my nearest town - it has 8 charity shops, and they are REALLY good!!! I always get good bargains - every single time. I got clothes in every size whilst losing - in size 24 down to size 10.

    they are great places for a bargain while you are changing sizes often. no point in paying through the nose 4 clothes if they'll be too big for you in a couple of months!! Bargaincrazy.com has some good things but you have to check it pretty often as sometimes it has nothing decent at all!
