Declutter, refresh your closet, and swap sustainably for just $30 or less

You may have heard of the closet rule of thumb: let go of any clothing you haven’t worn in the past six months. Most of us are terrible at this (hoarder alert?) but it is understandable that it can be difficult to part with items in your closet – you used to really love it, but now it’s outdated; it doesn’t fit anymore (but you’re in denial); it has sentimental value; you bought it at a steal but never found the right time to wear it… the list goes on.

It doesn’t change the fact that often our wardrobes are bursting with clothes we no longer wear, which results in the famous “Omg I have NOTHING to wear!” line our partners are so used to hearing every time we get ready for a night out. So instead of heading to the nearest fast fashion retailer and yet again falling into a rabbit hole of impulsively buying trendy clothing items that you’ll most probably only wear once (and possibly contributing to the ongoing human exploitation so many fast fashion houses are part of), go for a clothes swap.

Swapaholic is a massive clothing and accessories swap that allows you to trade in your items in exchange for points to use at their famous Swap Party, a cashless ‘flea market’ of sorts where you can swap till you drop. For just $15 (swap 1 to 3 items) or $30 (swap 4 to 20 items), you’ll get to streamline your wardrobe and discover unique finds you’ll actually want to wear.

How it works:

Step 1: Register online by 22 August 2018, proceed with payment and select your preferred pick up date and time for Swapaholic to collect your clothes, shoes or accessories. All men’s, women’s and children’s clothes, shoes and accessories in good quality are accepted.

Step 2: Once the items are collected, Swapaholic goes through a stringent process for quality checks and generates Swapling points for each item. Any clothes that are rejected can be collected on the event day, or you can choose to donate them to Swapaholic for recycling/repurposing for other usage.

Step 3: Rock up to the next Swap Party and swap clothes using your Swapling points! Want to swap more than what you registered for? Bring a friend and you can use their remaining swap points to get more items! You will not be allowed to top-up additional cash amount to swap for more clothes.

We also heard there’ll be plenty of surprises in store on event day – one of them being a chance to swap clothes from influencers like super-stylish mama besties Aarika Lee and Charmaine Seah-Ong, and conscious local brands Matter and TINT! Reduce waste, save money, and score really cool clothes… BRB, packing up our unwanted threads like, NOW!

WE BELIEVE WORKING PARENTS MAKE GREAT PARENTS. A 2015 Harvard Business School study of girls with working moms in 24 countries across the globe found that they grew up to have more successful careers themselves. And another HBS study found in 2018 that kids with two working parents grew up to be *just* as happy as kids with a stay-at-home parent. In short: if working makes you happy, mama, do it! And let go of the #momguilt, because a happy and fulfilled mama = happy kids. Of course, having the flexibility to work near your kids - and for them to see you on the job - has benefits for everybody; whether you're nursing your baby or telling each other about your mornings, we're grateful for a family-friendly co-working space like @trehausco. - Kate McFarlane, Senior Editor⠀

WE BELIEVE IN TEACHING TEAMWORK. Our world and our future are highly unpredictable. Technology is advancing so rapidly that we don't know what our world will look like in ten years let alone 20 years. Our children will also face dramatic environmental and political changes. So how do we prepare them for such an unpredictable future? #Teamwork. Learning to work as part of a team helps develop many social skills such as communication, empathy, patience, tolerance and collaboration. These are the skills that our children will need more than any others. - Emilie De Cannart, Managing Director, Sassy Media Group⠀

Have you caught your self yelling at your children? We have all been guilty of this and it has not been our finest moment. Would you like to learn how to be a calm and collected parent? This long weekend would be a good time to practice 😀 Our #linkinbio has the details from @respectfulmom.
