Paid in full


per merriam-webster online dictionary:
mon·ey \ˈmə-nē\ noun, (Etymology: Middle English moneye, from Anglo-French moneie, from Latin moneta mint, money, Date: 14th century)

1: something generally accepted as a medium of exchange, a measure of value, or a means of payment.

we buy clothing with money, so can we assume that clothing is worth money?

assuming your savings account was healthy, how would you feel about receiving the occasional payment for your work in the form of clothing (clothing, i should add, that you would like)?

sometimes it would be nice to be paid in clothing, but clothing dont pay the bills.

I'll take it (occasionally)!

Excellent! I love the idea of bartering and have done it in the past, with paintings in exchange for dental work (when I was without insurance), and rent reductions for a tenant in exchange for organic produce (she worked on a farm).

I would take it occasionally. Some of my paycheque goes to clothing anyways, so there wouldn't be a difference really.

Well, that wouldn't be much different from now. In addition to my full time job, I work at Banana Republic on Sundays. Everything I make goes right back to the store and then some!

Why not? I'd love to receive a package of beautiful clothing instead of a boring white envelope.

The difference between being paid in money and clothing, to me, is the difference between a blank sheet of paper and a coloring book page. The blank sheet of paper is your's to do as you wish, but the coloring book page, though wonderful and pretty, and perhaps it was what you were desiring, is already there and its image fully formed with you to fill in the details. I personally prefer having complete creative control...

I guess it would be good, because it would mean I was effectively forced to spend some of my money on clothes. Not that I need forcing... but it would be totally guilt-free clothing acquisition, I think.
