Swap Instead Of Shop

Swap Instead Of Shop

I’ve just been introduced to probably the most up to date, coolest, children/maternity cloths swapping idea around. It’s amazing how savvy we become the older we get and the more children we have.

This woman like most mothers looks in her Child’s closet and wants to scream WHAT DO I DO WITH ALL OF THESE CLOTHES! Children develop and grow at a rapid pace but unfortunately our wallets don’t. I am lucky to have a wonderful mother in law who finds me great buys at the local consignment shops but now I can shop and save too.

Out Growing In is such a simple but genius idea. Once you join as a member you can start swapping your gently used clothes with other eager, purging, frugal parents. You get rid of the clothes that don’t fit your child and swap for the clothes that do; can’t beat that.

Here’s a quick look at how it works:

1. Get a box.

2. Gather and list clothing (10-15 items, gently used).

3. Once you send a box you get to choose a box.

4. Pay shipping and processing (average is $13.95-14.95).

5. When one of your boxes are selected, ship it out. (you get a pre-paid label e-mailed to you).

The website is in it’s infancy stage but is quickly expanding, they have included a maternity swap as well.

Good luck swapping instead of shopping.
