I have an idea!!
Wait! Come back! It’s a good idea! You’re going to love it!
It occurred to me that we all (that is, every last one of us) have too much stuff. I know this because we’re always saying to one another, “I have too much stuff” and/or “I need to get rid of some stuff.” But some stuff is easier to get rid of than other stuff. Some stuff needs a new home (in that it doesn’t work for you but it might work for someone else), but you don’t feel right taking it to Goodwill and you’d like to make sure it goes to a home where it will be useful. This stuff is usually explained in any one or more of the following ways:
- “I really should get rid of that.”
- “I don’t have room for it.”
- “I don’t know why I bought it.”
- “It never really worked.”
- “It was so expensive.”
- “I’d hate to just pitch it.”
In other words: I’’ll show you my stuff if you show me your stuff, and maybe we can trade stuff. Let’s just jump in and DO IT. This is a real-life, real-time offer.
I’m willing to trade two almost-new pair of men’s Lucky 361 Vintage straight-leg jeans, size 34 x 30, holes optional. (They don’t have any, but you could add them.) Crafted for ease and comfort, these low-rise, straight-leg jeans are as enduring as America itself. Of course, at $99.00 a pair they aren’t exactly your dad’s jeans.
Now, you offer me a trade in the comment section of Odd. You don’t need to post a picture of what you’re offering; just describe it to me. It doesn’t need to be comparable; it just needs to be useful, or cute, or a cool gadget. Tell me why I can’t live without your stuff.
On Wednesday, September 4, I’ll chose an offer and we’ll agree to the swap. Let’s just each pay our own postage on the item we send. Can we agree 10 days is a reasonable amount of time to wrap something up and stick it in the mail?
A new swap will be posted every Wednesday. I know today is Tuesday, but I was just too excited to wait for Wednesday this week.
Make me an offer I can’t refuse…any offer…any offer at all. And hey, any aquarium decorations hanging out there? Just askin’….
