How To Hold a No Money Swap

Thursday, September 24, 2009

Are you looking to get rid of some leftovers that didn't sell at your garage sale this year? Perhaps your looking to get rid of Annie's last year's clothing that she outgrew and has no one to pass them down to?
You can organize your own no money required swap.Whether this will be amongst friends or a community type thing, you decide.It can be big or small.
-make a list of friends you feel may be interested, if you feel it will be a small friends and family thing.
-find someone who has a garage or basement they can spare the space with for one afternoon or evening.
-make invites and mail out or e-vite- with date, time and place. Either it will be an all clothing swap or perhaps just housewares- or a bit of both- you decide.
-put out a few beverages or snacks....remember, we're trying to save money here so don't go putting on a smorg-hee hee
-let all attendees know that there is no limits to what they take- just that it needs to all go..
-donate leftovers either back to their owners, a charitable thrift store, or save for the next year's garage sale...
and by all means, make it a family affair!
