Have you tried any thrift shops? It's a good place to find cheap clothes.

Oh bummer! My thrift stores around here (salvation army and goodwill) always have half price days. That's when I go. I find a lot of things for about $2 a piece. That's where I get most of maternity clothes. Sorry you didn't have any luck at yours. There are always garage sales.... but they don't have changing rooms for trying on.

You could always just get a few basic pieces to start.... black pants, skirt, etc and mix it up with different shirts.

By the way.... congrats on getting your dream job!

  My sister contacted the chuch and a woman she knew from there just gave her the cloths.  Granted she was in need of maternity wear, but people are natural givers (especially at church). I'd try that route.
