Swapping Saga Continued

Hi, I’m Mrs EconoWiser and I’m an addict. I’m addicted to this swapping website. Hi Mrs EconoWiser, welcome to Swapping Anonymous. šŸ˜‰

Well, actually, I don’t need help in kicking this habit. It’s a very Mustachian habit, I presume. See, I’ve been swapping my ass off. šŸ˜‰ I have swapped an old coffee machine, jewelry I don’t wear anymore, books, gifts that I had no use for and what not against stuff for the baby. I think we don’t have to spend another dime to dress her for the next year. Also, I have swapped against other baby stuff that we intended to buy anyway. See, I want to keep the house clear of clutter. This swapping website is great if you’re looking for kid’s stuff, since everybody seems to have piles of kiddy stuff lying around the house. And once they grow out of it, it’s just sitting there doing nothing.

People can post pictures of the things they want to swap and they can also make an album. So when you’re interested in something they can browse through the stuff you’re offering. You can also post a request for stuff you’re looking for.

This way, everybody wins. We don’t spend any money, new stuff stays at the store and we all get what we want in the end. Yay!

Have you found a local swapping initiative yet?

        Evt. ook voor mensen uit een dorpje in de buurt? Ik woon in een dorpje tussen Den Bosch en Veghel en ben nog aan het inburgeren dus ken dit soort initiatieven nog niet. Zou wel een uitkomst zijn!

        Als je bereid bent om naar Den Bosch te komen om te ruilen mag het van de beheerders, volgens mij. Zoek op Facebook naar Den Bosch Ruilt.

    There is some kind of online platform for swapping here, but it uses some kind of virtual money, or “tickets”, and everything is worth 1-3 tickets … I’d prefer something without a platform as a middle man. In a few weeks we’ll meet up with some friends for a clothing swap party, which sounds like more fun.

    Leuk initiatief! Ik maak gebruik van het freecycle netwerk in mijn stad. Het is van oorsprong Amerikaans. Iedereen plaatst wat hij zoekt of kwijt wil en de leden mailen elkaar als er iets van hun gading bij is. Ik heb zelf kleding en speelgoed voor mijn dochter opgehaald en kerstspullen, krappaal en inktpatronen weg gegeven.
