I bet you have an item or two (or twenty) that you no longer want just sitting around gathering dust. Why not trade them for other things that you want or need? Marcy gives you eight suggestions of places you can trade or barter your stuff. Some of the places allow you to swap for free and some charge a small fee. Some of them even have lists of things people are offering to give away. Check out these Internet swap shops
as you get ready for spring cleaning.
I'll add one site that Marcy didn't mention -- Craigslist offers free classifieds in many cities all over the World. Just browse to a location near you and check out the listings or post your own. Many of the cities also have a "free" or "free stuff" category.
