Coupon and Stockpile Swap next weekend — Lisle Library!

stockpileswap

Reminder — This coming Saturday, come on out and join us at the first Coupon and Stockpile Swap from Mashup Mom and deranged.me! We’ll be at the Lisle Public Library, IL on Saturday April 19 2014 from 1:00-3:00 PM. Stop in any time — all are welcome, and no registration is required. Bring your unneeded coupons and stockpile items to share, and bring home new coupons and stockpile items from others. Did you end up with extra probiotics, but need low-dose aspirin? Do you have a glut of baby coupons, but need pet food coupons? Bring your extras, and benefit from others’ extras!

Very simple rules

  • Bring something if you’re going to take something.
  • Be considerate, so that everyone gets a chance to leave with something new.
  • If you have a lot of stockpile items, leave them in your car, bring in representative samples, and talk with others about what you have to swap — don’t hurt yourself, lol.
  • No selling. No money can change hands at this event; bring items and coupons with the understanding that you’re giving them away to others.

If you’re looking for something in particular (baby items, gluten free coupons, what have you) feel free to comment here or on the Coupon Trading Facebook group. If you have extras of something in particular, please comment with what you might be bringing to share. Swap at your own risk; neither the library, Mashup Mom, nor deranged.me can be liable for how stockpile items have been stored, expiration dates, etc.

Any leftover stockpile items at the end of the event will be donated to the Lisle Township Food Pantry, which serves residents of Lisle and unincorporated parts of Lisle, Naperville and Woodridge.

Are you in the Chicago area? You’ll want to check out the upcoming Spring Celebration at Mrs. Green’s Natural Market, which will be held at their Chicago store at 555 West Webster Ave. this Thursday March 27 from 6-8:30 PM. Mrs. Green’s is a new-to-me neighborhood store devoted to offering healthy food at an honest price to customers who care deeply about the foods they eat. They have one very cool-looking Chicago location in Lincoln Park so far, but are planning to expand their Chicago presence — and you can view current in-store specials on healthy food on their website. (This week’s ad notes that they’re offering free two-hour parking with a $25+ purchase, which is a definite plus in Lincoln Park!)
