Swapping Adventures Part 1 by Emmanuel Lopez If you are going through difficult times in your life or career right now, remember not to let a lack of money get in the way of the help you need. This is my story about swapping, and I hope it inspires you if you are feeling stuck. A few years ago I claimed...


Our Eco-Swap at the Green Living Show was another triumph! The Swap Zone was a real crowd magnet and the energy was just electric. In three days at the show, we saw 5,669 items dropped off, 4,762 of which were swapped for swapper savings of over $38,000. That’s almost double our numbers from last...


Spring has sprung and so has the requisite cleaning and de-cluttering season. While some of us love to de-clutter, others have a hard time parting with even the most unnecessary stuff. We were curious about the state of clutter in a typical North American home and here’s what we found out: 80%...

Feb 8th 2013, 12:59, by Swapsity

By Lucile Baker I am the third generation of my family to be born and raised in a small city in the south of France.

Nov 7th 2012, 02:12, by Swapsity

By Meka Jones In January of this year, I ran two First Aid courses, completely on barter.  I regularly teach this course to workplace groups, where the students are reluctant - and grumpy - so I was curious to know who would take the course voluntarily. I was also curious what kinds of swaps I might...


Diving into Your First Swap Deal

Oct 3rd 2012, 13:29, by Swapsity

By Shannon Simmons The world needs more barter! Most of us know barter is a good idea; it can keep us from using credit cards and helps to save money. But knowing barter is a good idea is one thing, but actually taking that first step to initiate a swap can be intimidating to some first-time swappers. This...
