The staff at the environmentally themed school where I used to work got together once a year for a clothing swap. Bring what you don’t want, leave with what you do. It was a blast– piles and piles of new-to-you clothes, for FREE! Plus you got rid of the things you didn’t like in your own closet and got to see them go to a great place.
That’s the premise behind Swap.com. Get rid of things you don’t need– used books, music, movies, video games– and find things you do. Not only will you keep junk from a landfill, you’ll save money on the things you want for yourself. Plus it’s fun finding homes for your unwanted stuff and grabbing things you’ll use. Want to swap bigger things? Then find or list a swap in the local swap event section and find like-minded swappers online with the click of a button.
Feel even better about your swaps by supporting Swap4Schools. As a teacher, I spent thousands out of pocket for books and supplies for my students. In this era of even tighter budgets, schools need help more than ever to provide even the most basic supplies. Educators and schools can sign-up to build lists of things they need, and swappers can send those items directly to the schools. There’s no better feeling than decluttering and helping kids at the same time.
Plus, there’s an app for that. iPhone users can take their swapping mobile with the Swap.com app!
Swap.com is the world’s largest swap meet, helping the community at large with fabulous programs such as Swap4Schools as well. Save money and the planet, one used book/video/CD at a time, at Swap.com!
