Woah it’s hot out! Time to take in a cool swap! I know it’s hard to believe, but back-to-school is right around the corner. Why not save a little money and swap for some of your back-to-school clothing instead? This month there are swaps for women, men, teens, kids, babies (well, the adults will be swapping for the babies) and maternity. Save some money, help the environment by passing usable items on to others, hang out with some new fun and frugal friends, and enjoy this last month of summer by attending the free swap(s) of your choice.
