Swap Old Stuff

If shopping is your favorite pastime, or you're just in need of some new stuff, head online to swapping sites to get what you need from fellow shoppers.

  • Swapping sites have become the latest hot trend for overzealous shoppers. Instead of having to spend your hard earned cash at stores, swap your old stuff for something new. For example, if you've already finished the first two books in a novel series, but there is one more left, you can swap to get the one you need with items that somebody else wants.
  • Garage sales are usually one of the best ways to get rid of unwanted junk. Instead of piling everything up in the yard, gather all your old books, CDs and movies that have been collecting dust and trade them for items you really want.
  • Video games can also be traded. Instead of buying each new game that comes out, have your kids trade their old ones for the games they've been begging you to buy. It's an easy way to save on some cash while also keeping the family entertained.

Swaptree assists you in trading books, music, movies and games and even matches up corresponding purchases.
