With twins, our closets are literally busting at the seams each season as we have racks (and piles) of clothes in two different genders, multiple seasons and numerous sizes. We’ve told you a little bit about our consignment sale experiences, but we always have favorite outfits that we know would make someone very happy to find.
We’d dabbled in online trading before – but found the previous site we used to have a few problems. Primarily, the person with a young child needing sizes we’d outgrown, had little to offer us when we were looking for larger sizes to grow into. It was really a bummer to have to tell someone “no-go” and not clear out my clothing stash – and at the same time – not get what we needed!
I was thrilled then when I was introduced to Swapdom! It’s absolutely the perfect solution. Here’s the basics of how it works:
1 – You photograph and post items you no longer want.
2 – You browse to find the items that you love, and then indicate what items you see as a “fair trade” for the things you like.
3 – You sit back and wait as the awesomeness of Swapdom goes to work like a fabulous matchmaker.
You see, that’s the magic of Swapdom. Their algorithm connects the person who wants your stuff, with the person who has stuff you want – and creates a multi-person swap so that everyone wins! This video does an excellent job at illustrating the process.

They make it easy and affordable to get the things you want – while supporting a sustainable environment by encouraging reuse. And as any mom with little ones knows, going shopping out of the house can be close to impossible. This convenient system lets you shop from your couch! Even when you ship your item to your trade partner, their relationship with UPS allows you to print your label from home, never having to wait in long post office lines.
Getting started, I’ve uploaded three little gems, and am excited to get my first connection for a swap!
