Do you have:
- Books, CDs, DVDs or video games you no longer want?
- Gift cards to stores you don't patronize?
- Toys your children have outgrown, or simply gotten bored with?
- Clothes you haven't worn in years - and probably never will again?
You can certainly donate them, offer them up on Freecycle, or include them in a garage sale. But another option is to swap them on one of the many web sites set up for this purpose.
All sort of stuff seems to get swapped; the items I've listed above are just some of the most common.
I've written about swapping web sites before, but now I'd like to point you to Simple Living - SF South Bay/Peninsula, where the wonderful Kathryn Benedicto maintains a list of swapping networks on the web - along with a number of other useful lists. While this Yahoo group is targeted to those of us in the San Francisco Bay Area, the swapping web sites would be equally useful to those in other parts of the country - and in many cases, in other parts of the world. And you don't need to join the group to see the list - just follow that link above.
