Free Shopping and Eco-Friendliness

If you are anything like me, you like a good bargain! As spring quickly approaches and the spring cleaning commences, you may be trying to figure out exactly what to do with all that "stuff" you want to get rid of. Here are a couple of online options I can't get enough of:

I have long been a fan of clothing swaps. Not only is it a good way of getting rid of the things that you can no longer use, its a good way to give your wardrobe a free face lift. Yesterday I became a member of Rehash, an online clothing, accessory & book swap site. Check it out by clicking here. You simply photograph and list items you want to swap and then let the fun begin. As long as you have items in your profile anyone can contact you to swap. See something you want? Offer one or two pieces in exchange and let the negotiations begin.

I also recently joined Listia. Listia works similarly to e-bay but instead of paying cash for stuff you trade with points. You can earn points a myriad of ways. You get 50 points when you sign up, another 50 if you link your account to facebook and more when you list items. There is even an option to buy points. Unlike Rehash, Listia allows you to post virtually any item you want. Click here to check it out!

The best part about both of these sites is that you don't have to pay a dime. Simply use what you already have!

I love these types of ideas. I enjoy a website that lets you "exchange" books. You post the books and if someone wants it, you mail it to them. You are only out the postage (media mail) and you get a credit in your account that you can use to order a book from someone else for free. No cost to you. I have been a member for about 3 years.
