Our Swap Items

September 25, 2008 at 3:42 pm 22 comments

I’m a packrat, a hoarder. I get in honestly, from my mother.

Hoarding is not the way to save. I’ve talked about it a little before but holding on to lots of stuff doesn’t mean you buy less. It means you buy more, because you forget what you have, or you need more shelves, more hangers, bigger dressers, bigger closets, a bigger home, a storage space.

This isn’t to say I’m against stuff. I love stuff. I just need to fight my natural inclination to keep everything, and just try to keep things I really want. And since I’ve gotten better at that, I’m helping my mom to do the same.

With that in mind, yesterday she and I got ready for the clothing swap together. I am a terrible photographer and do not have beautiful photos with tons of details like some posts.

Everything is from a home with a cat, and most of it is from a home with a small amount of smoke, so if you have allergies be prepared to clean things. Shipping is going to be cheaper on combined shipping than if you just added the shipping prices for the items together. Items ship from around 10027, New York, NY. You can calculate shipping here at USPS.

To claim, please comment below with the following information:
–Email (Paypal email if you want your stuff shipped)
–Whether you want to pick your clothes up in person or have them shipped
–Items claimed

All numbering is left to right and top then bottom. If you want more detail about anything ask for it.

    PS: I just want to make sure Ellen is claiming any things if she wants them. Are you claiming for her or poking her to claim things?

  • 3. debtfreesaver  |  September 25, 2008 at 4:18 pm

    ali- done. Didn’t you give me 42?

    She is claiming things for herself theoretically. So far I think all she wants are the duck curtains (for teh bathroom)

  • 4. Ali  |  September 25, 2008 at 4:46 pm

    Haha, that’s awesome. THey’ll be perfect in there. I totally might have given you that, but now I have nothing that color. Yay having it again, haha.

  • 5. Becka  |  September 25, 2008 at 4:54 pm

    Ali, did you happen to claim #12 before I did? I posted on flickr about 12 pm. The times on here are messed up. If you beat me to it, okay, but I ❤ that shirt!!!!!!

    I would like #1 and #17. In person.

    Are those my duck curtains Ellen wants? They are up for grabs.

  • 6. Becka  |  September 25, 2008 at 5:08 pm

    Ok, I tried to post this before, maybe it didn’t go through. I asked for #12 on flickr before realizing, duh, claim on blog page. Ali I have no idea what time you posted this because 4:09 hasn’t happened yet. I posted on flickr around noon. pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease i ❤ this shirt.

    I’d also like #1.

    are those my duck curtains? should I set them as claimed?

    sorry if the other post does turn up out of cyberspace.

  • 7. debtfreesaver  |  September 25, 2008 at 5:58 pm

    Becka- sorry, I had to approve your comment. I marked the curtains as claimed-Ellen has a duck-themed bathroom.

    #1 is yours.

    #12, I am not sure what to do about. I think it will probably be big on Ali? Ali-how do we resolve this?

  • 8. debtfreesaver  |  September 25, 2008 at 6:05 pm

    also, do you still want 17?

  • 9. Adiel  |  September 25, 2008 at 7:40 pm

    I want to claim 18 🙂

  • 10. debtfreesaver  |  September 25, 2008 at 7:51 pm

    Adiel-done!

  • 11. Emily  |  September 25, 2008 at 8:12 pm

    I would like to claim 14, 21 and 22pants at the in-person swap. Now that I know scarves are contribute-able, I am totally contributing scarves, too!

  • 12. debtfreesaver  |  September 25, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    Emily-

    I think the policy is that people who are sharing items online get first dibs, so if you are not then tomorrow when the claiming opens up I will make sure those are claimed by you first thing (assuming nobody else nabs them first.) Or make a post today =)

    I think 14 is perfect for you.

  • 13. Adiel  |  September 25, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    Just looked again, I want to claim 40 as well. 🙂

  • 14. Mer  |  September 25, 2008 at 11:50 pm

    Hey, can you put up little tags that say claimed next to the item? It would be uber-helpful for tomorrow when I start claiming. Thankies.

  • 15. Ali  |  September 26, 2008 at 1:38 am

    Becka can totally have 12! Big on me and someone else wants it way more = no problem.

  • 16. Ali  |  September 26, 2008 at 11:13 am

    If 73 hasn’t been stretched over you guys’ boobs for years, I want it! (i.e., I want it if it would fit me, but if someone else wants it and it would fit them better, that’s totally fine.)

  • 17. Ali  |  September 26, 2008 at 11:14 am

    Also, I will take 79.

  • 18. debtfreesaver  |  September 26, 2008 at 12:15 pm

    Ali-73 has never been worn. 73 & 79 are yours
    Emily-14,21, and pants of 22 are yours

    Mer-notes that things are claimed have been added.

    Anyone can claim now!

  • 19. Lara Murphy  |  September 26, 2008 at 12:51 pm

  • 20. debtfreesaver  |  September 26, 2008 at 1:34 pm

    Lara-OK,claimed for you. I can bring them to Ali and she can give them to you whenever. So glad you are excited about things!
