Happy Spring! Time to de-clutter your house, closets, garage, and storage! Dig out all the things that are still in great shape, but you just don’t need/use love anymore. Wash them up, make sure all the pieces are there, and bring them to a free swap in April. We’ve got quite a variety this month: all size women’s clothing, stuff /toys/books/household/collectable swaps, family swaps for men/women/teens/kids, maternity clothing and baby/kids clothing and stuff swap, women’s small to medium swap, and women’s large to plus swap! If you don’t see a swap in area or subject that you like, please start a free swap – and I’ll give you free advertising here on the site! Together, we can all treasure hunt and play with like minded people, declutter, and make a positive difference: because remainders are given to charities who give them away – so everyone who participates is a philanthropist! If you have a swap I’ve not mentioned, please let me know. Here’s the free swaps we know about so far for April:
