The Proverbs 31 Woman – Week 7 – Shopping for Clothes!

Photo Credit

Alright ladies – this week the Proverbs 31 woman is getting dressed and dressing her family!

We are up to Proverbs 31:21 & 22:

When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
for all of them are clothed in scarlet.
22 She makes coverings for her bed;
she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

I have been battling laryngitis for 7 days – so I drank lots of hot tea and honey before this video and eeked it out! I apologize for being so croaky :(

(If you are reading this post in an email – click here to view the video.)

In the video, I mentioned how I like to “Clothes Swap” with my friends! Here’s a few pics from our last clothes swap and you can find the rest of the details on this blog post here.

Each girl chose a section of the room to display their clothes.
Clare from Peak 313 Fitness scored my Easter 2009 dress! It fits! Hooray!
Look what I found! Gorgeous! (although once I tried it on it didn’t fit and went to my sister)
Becky has on a new t-shirt, necklace and shoes (plus an arm full!)
My $6 outfit!
Here’s what I wore to church the Sunday after the swap – my brand new blue shirt and new necklace – free from the swap! And a $6 skirt from a resale shop! (minus the boots – which are Payless!)
I also love to shop at resale shops and here’s a video I made a while back titled “How to Shop for Feminine Clothes on a Budget.”

This Week’s Challenge: Plan and prepare now for Fall. We all know the kids are going to need back to school clothes – watch the clearance racks for winter clothes on clearance and stock up now. Don’t forget it’s garage sale season – I love a good garage sale and have clothes in my closet and in the kid’s closets from garage sales too!! Be sure to share your children’s clothes that you are done with. My kids have hand me downs from their cousins – we love hand me downs! And all my clothes get binned up and passed on to two other Christian families who have kids just one size below mine. Share :) and Happy Shopping!
Do you have a special way you prepare clothes for your family? Share it in the comments section!

  1. Courtney- I love your shopping video! I get to go shopping soon after I lose a little bit more baby weight and my husband gave me a big budget, but I want to stretch it as far as I can. I love your tips. I can’t wait to go shopping now!

  2. I jumped into this series in the middle but have been enjoying it very much. It has made me really think about where I am at as a wife and mother. Since my kids are grown I also am thinking about how I can help my daughter instill these values in her children.

  3. My hubby promised me a sizeable shopping trip if I can get down to my pre-pregnancy weight after baby #1, I made it once or twice, but couldn’t seem to stay there. So I never got my spree. I am now preg with baby #2 and hope to be back to pre-preg weight #1 after this one. This preg is going much smoother weight wise because I am under strict Dr care for diabetes and on a strict diet…bad word choice, it is actually a food plan, a *lot* of food, so definitely not a “diet”…because of it. I may have to see what I can find at a few thrift stores. I’ve been to a couple and haven’t seen much, but I see the finds other people have in their closets and I figure I must not be looking with an open mind. So I will try again after our newest little one is here :)

  4. You can also combine different forms of cardiovascular exercises to keep yourself
    away from boredom. I actually got so annoyed with doing squats that were not being counted, that I had to end the
    workout, and skip into another one. “She’s been on a diet ever since, because they have to be up to par, so she looks terrific.

    tanning has taken the world by storm. Bliss, A Tan For All Seasons

    These companies have a good logistics system and a flexible payment system that makes
    it easy for the salon owners to make sure that they get the products like the spray tan solution easily.

    them without getting charged a fee. To get the most effective ROI for your
    time and effort, spend it on materials you have the most trouble with.

    shots you’ve taken and assembled to show the possibilities of your
    range and depth of photographic artistry. You can correct and adjust the ready made design pattern at
    your will. By searching on the net, one can find hundreds of fashion industry portals where all kinds of information related to European fashion are
    available in detail.
