In my hometown a Facebook page has been set up in order to encourage people to swap items that they don’t use anymore and want to get rid of. It’s all about swapping these things locally and meeting new people whether it be on or offline. I’ve signed up for this, but haven’t swapped anything yet. I figured this not the handiest time ever since I could go into labour any moment now.
However, one of my neighbours has turned into an avid swapper. She came across this woman with three daughters who was interested in one of her items and only had baby’s clothes on offer. She phoned me whether I would object to her getting gifts for our baby this way. Hell no! I LOVE this idea! So she swapped the items and she just couldn’t wait for the baby to come in order to give me the baby’s clothes she got through swapping. Haha! I think there were about second-hand 25 (!!!) items and they’re really cool! I am over the moon with this gift. I just love how it didn’t cost her anything but her time and an item she didn’t use anymore anyway. Her baby shower gift to me was also really cool: she’s going to bake a pie for her first birthday. She’s really good at baking cakes. I mean, how cool is this?! I think I have met a like-minded person in my neighbourhood, yay!!!
Would you have objected to this idea?
P.s. I am so going to join this swap thing after the baby is born. One person’s trash is another person’s treasure!
