How You Can Trade Stuff You No Longer Want

By Beryl Dalton

Every now and then, people do a huge clean up of items in their home and find a large amount of things that they no longer use, want or need. These items can include clothes, shoes, electronic items, video games, CDs, DVDs and other things around the home such as ornaments and other decor. A good idea to get rid of these things while making room for new things is to trade stuff and there are a number of ways in which to do this.

Trading items with others is a good way to save money, first of all. Sometimes, real treasures can be found that have significant value that the previous owner did not know about. It's also a good way to find unique and interesting objects that may no longer be on the market or in stores.

Swapping can be done in a home setting, where everyone knows one another or has someone in common. Friends, family and even neighbors can be invited to bring their unwanted items and everything can be put on show for people to browse and then trade. This is one way of making sure that unwanted things find a new home where they will be well taken care of.

Things can also be swapped on social media, where there is a wider network of contacts and therefore greater chances of finding something unique or unusual. Photos of items to trade can either be placed with a description on someone's profile for their friends and acquaintances to view and comment on, or there are groups that cater to such purposes. The benefit of joining a trading group is that the network for trading is further expanded.

Something you should definitely take advantage of on the Internet is the numerous trading sites that are set up for this purpose. You can get in touch with individuals from practically anywhere in the world, which means that you may be able to find something truly unusual as well. A lot of these sites will also allow you to post your item to sell, so you could actually make a little money on the side.

There are numerous websites that encourage trading. Some of them are focused on trading in specific categories, such as clothing or books only. Others have multiple categories, including items as big as cars, and this can be a great resource for individuals who have a lot of different things to get rid of.

When it comes to trading clothes and shoes, even these categories can be specific. For example, there are sites that only allow the trading of designer goods. This is a real advantage to those with designer things to trade who don't want to then go out and spend a fortune on something new that they may only wear once or twice. Designer clothing and accessories tend to be very well taken care of, so chances are one may find something valuable and in practically new condition.

A number of websites encourage the trading of books, offering different levels of points for different titles. For those who have rare or valuable titles to swap, more points are available. The points can then be used to purchase or bid on books from other users.
