A few months ago, someone in my area started a local swap and sale group on Facebook, and I am now HOOKED! I have found such good deals on there, and have sold quite a few things as well. If I am looking for something, then I post on there first, just to see if someone has what I am looking for. I needed a new dog kennel and was able to buy one really cheap. The lady just had it sitting in her shed and wasn't using it. Also, we are going camping next week, and we could use a larger tent and camping chairs. So, I posted on there what I was looking for, and sure enough, I was able to buy it all for a fraction of what I would have paid at the store. The tent had never even been taken out of the package!
Anyway, just wanted to let you ladies know, so you can look to see if there are any similar groups in your area. If not, maybe you could start one:)
