Frugal Dad – save money by swapping baby clothes

Shopping for kids clothes is not only never-ending, it’s also very expensive. There are ways to reduce the latter problem, by shopping sales that occur as the season is just getting underway, for example.checking out the spread

Another way the internet makes possible is clothes swapping sites. Try www.SwapThing.com for example This Bay Area company si a site for trading all kinds of services and products. SwapThing.com makes it easier to find and list item you are searching for, or need to get rid of.

Another site is Swapbabygoods.com. This free site lets you list clothes or other baby times you have for swap or sale and makes it easy for others to find them by sorting by size and other options. You can also see a wish list of sellers/swappers so you can quickly see if your closet holds the key to their happiness (and a better deal for you).

If these sites aren’t your cup of tea, search Google or look in your local paper for local swap events. These events let you see clothes first hand so you can inspect for quality and cleanliness before you get involved with shipping.

Using these types of services doesn’t have to be like a trip to Goodwill, where clothing often looks like it was thrown away. These options can help you find clothing, especially for babies and toddlers, that still is almost new because the child was only that size for a few short weeks or months. If it’s hard for you buy “used,” consider it very positive recycling.
