NYC Saver's Swap Meets

From the mail bag, here's a neat tip for NYC residents:

8 times a month the ING DIRECT Cafe (968 3rd Ave @ 58th St) hosts Saver's Swap meets. Every Sunday from 1-5pm, anyone can come by the Cafe with gently used home goods, apparel and electronics to swap with other Savers. Every Tuesday all day long we host a Media Edition swap meet where Savers can contribute used books, DVDs, CDs, vinyl records & VHS tapes. All remaining items are donated to the Salvation Army. Here's a link to a NY Post article featuring the Saver's Swaps.

If anyone goes, leave a comment and let us know how it went!

A friend of mine dumped a large George Foreman grill on me a few weeks ago to "donate somewhere". Now I know where to take it, maybe even this Sunday!

I found another way to get rid of all kinds of things, but it's just once a month (last Sunday):

Not far from my apartment! If the weather ever cools down and I can actually stand to go through my closet without dying from heat exhaustion, I might have to go check this out.

A friend of mine hosted a "clothes swap" at her home a few weeks ago. She asked us to bring gently used clothes, shoes, jewelry, etc. to trade with others. I walked away with a black silk cocktail dress, a cashmere sweater, 2 pairs of shorts, and a necklace...all for free. And, I got rid of things I knew I would no longer wear.
