Hi everyone!  I was just curious if anyone would be interested in a third round of the Frugal Living Swap. Smiley

For those who haven't participated, it's a swap where we make things to help out keeping on budget: making reusable things for the kitchen, bath, and home (basically anything so we don't have to buy it!) and inspirational things to help us stay into being frugal!  We've had a lot of fun these past two rounds!

I was thinking signups the last two weeks of July (17-31), partners on August 1st with send-outs September 7th (the day after Labor Day weekend in the US).

I've even got a tag-line ready if there are interested parties!

Kaz, how could I possibly resist? the last round tempted me out of Swap retirement and the Frugal swap is soooo much fun. I even have a few Frugal blog links to add to the mix if this one is a go.

So do we get to hear the tag line or are you keeping it secret til signups?!  Wink

You're totally going to have to wait. Cheesy

So do the dates work for everyone?  We can push it back if an October send would be better?

September is fine with me, but I would prefer maybe send outs the week after labor day. I think I may be going out of town for the holiday weekend.

I was thinking this too!  So hmm ... to wait until September to start the swap with send-outs in November?  Or August-October?  Or should this be separate from round 3?

Thoughts?

Hmm tough call, I think you could still have them as separate rounds as you may get different people signing up for the Christmas swap but is 4 rounds in one year too much? that's the question I think.  Wink
