Spring cleaning – get new books, cds, dvds – recycle

I love swaptree.com.

This web site is so simple to use and it helps you trade old books/cds/dvds for new ones. You recycle instead of buy new. Plus, I got inspired by this to give away old books to my daughter’s school and charities. It helped me open up some bookshelf space.

All you do is type in the isbns of about 25 or 30 books/cds/dvds that you or your kids have outgrown. Then you type in some isbns of books/cd/dvds that you would want. Then, sit back and wait. The swaptree software matches up people who own the book you want with people who want the book you have. Just go check it out.

You don’t have to go to the post office either. The postage is charged to your credit card (about $3 for books, less for cds). You print out a label and drop it in the mail.

I especially love it for books/dvds that my daughter has outgrown. I can get books that fit her current reading level by trading things she’s outgrown. Enjoy.
