Savvy Swapper

After five successful swaps, Meagan is a firm believer in the benefits of barter.

"I think there's a lot of unused stuff in our world and I love seeing something go from someone who's just 'meh' about it to someone who is really enthusiastic about it," says the Toronto ESL teacher and Swapsity member.

Some of Meagan's amazing exchanges include trading a blank notebook for a Chinese chess set, perfume for cash and beads for two soup pots, which she uses every day. Most recently, she swapped a set of stemless burgundy wine glasses for a book on newspaper design, one of her favourite swaps so far! Meagan has also given away free iCoke points to a fellow Swapsity member.

As a frequent swapper, Meagan has learned a thing or two about improving the barter experience.

"Be open-minded to trades that aren't on your wishlist or swap list," she says. "If someone has something you like, send them a message even if they don't have a need you can meet on their wishlist. You never know!"

Right now, Meagan is on the look-out for someone offering massage services and says she's always in need of textbooks for teaching ESL. Take a look at Meagan's profile and strike up a deal with her!
