Swap and Save

You quickly realize the expense of raising a family the first time your child outgrows a new wardrobe or set of toys. As a mom of five, it did not take me long to discover the benefits that swapping with neighbors, friends and family had on my bank account.

My first swapping experience was during my local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group meeting. A few moms brought items they no longer needed, which could be swapped for things they could use. It was during one of those meetings that we got the idea of hosting themed swaps, including a book swap, toy swap and clothing swap.
