Ok, I admit it - with the changes in the weather I have had the itch to shop but no money to do it. New shoes, things for an upcoming birthday party, clothes - especially cute baby items. But after reading this post on kids clothing and toy swaps I was reminded that I could probably have just as much fun (and not go into debt) if I organized a clothes and toys swap or went to my local Good Will. Actually here in Portland I have frequented many kids consignment stores and rarely by new kids items (so why wouldn't I do this for adult items?). Thanks mostly to my mommy friends I get many items used (for free, or maybe coffee) and what I don't get I can usually find on consignment or Craigslist - but it might be time for a good old fashion More for Less swap around here :)
Anyone interested just let me know! Read the blog post from Green Living Tips above to find out how to organize one yourself. Save money and the planet + stop that shopping itch!
