I recently signed to this swapping at Swap Bot! it's where we can swap things like candies, clothes, jewellery....basically the limit is endless!!...this activity is usually for those who loves getting something in their mailbox..so one day I decided to join, to find out whether this is all just a bru-ha-ha "too good to be true" thing...I decided to join a candy swap called 'sugar rush'..now here are basic guides when swapping:
1) if u r new with swapping, u will be called a 'newbie' (swapping slang for newcomers)...now, newbies may have quite a limit to the things that he/she can swap, as there's no proof by others that this newbie has ever posted anything yet.
2)there are a lot of swap categories, ranging from email, recipes,clothes, drawing, and food (my favourite)...there's even a category specially made for newbies..i recommend u join the newbie category 1st.
3)pick whichever swap that may fulfill your desire...look at the detail information of the swap...some swaps are regional,and not meant for international swappers.
4)look closely at the number of partners (ppl who you'll be sending your stuffs to).. the more partners, the more money u need to fork out (basically for the postage fees)
5)look for the deadline and observe it closely...u must send your swap before or on the day of deadline.
6)once u have send your package,u just need to wait for yours to arrive!!
and I got mine just yesterday!!! it's from Jennifer who lives in Toronto..
these r the candies that she sent me:
some chocolate toffees
baskin robbins hard candy (cookies n cream and choc mint)...i never know baskin robbins makes candies!!!
wonka sweettarts squeez
incredible hulk popping candy with lollipop
some lollipops...can't see the brand
I can't wait to devour every single one of these afterwards!!!
if you're wondering...I did mention in my specification that I can't eat anything that has gelatin or have any element of pork...and Jennifer followed my specification to the last letter...its very important to mention to your partners about your likes n dislikes..in case you'll get something u hate, u can't really blame them right??
after you have receive packages from your partners, u have to rate them, giving them a maximum of 5 stars if u love what they sent.
so if u decided to be a swapper, happy swapping!!
