Media Madness!

  • Sep 29, 2013 · 11:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

It's time to clear off those bookshelves and clean out the closets!  Join us for a media exchange and potluck sandwich lunch.

We have had an exchange in the past and it was very successful!  It's time to clear out some clutter and do it again!

We will exchange books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, and any other media (software, VCR tapes, etc.) you want to get rid of/donate/trade. Bring children's stuff, adults' stuff, fiction, and nonfiction.   But don't stop there!  We will also trade toys, purses, household items, old electronics, clothing, art supplies, and more!  Bring anything and everything!   We will lay out everything by category (adult books, child books, child DVDs, adult DVDs, etc.).

We will have time to browse the items while eating our lunch, then take turns choosing items to take home.  We will have a system so families can take about the same amount as what they brought.  (Any ideas of how to make it fair are appreciated.)  Any leftover items will be sent to Goodwill or sold at Half-Price books with profits going toward our meetup fees and activities.

Sign up using Sign Up Genius to bring something related to submarine sandwiches: buns, toppings (veggies, cheese, meats), drinks, chips and dip, or a light dessert.

I hope to see everyone there! It will be quite a fun time, and you'll walk away with all sorts of new goodies.

    Sorry, I'm bowing out today. With the ACA "going live" on October 1, work has been crazy, and I had to work yesterday. Need a day to recover. Plus, with us moving, we really need to get RID of stuff, not TRADE for new stuff! LOL!

      Aw man, I have lots of size 6,7,8 girls clothes. If there are any left afterwards, would you be interested in taking a look? Or I can just go ahead and donate them with everything else afterwards, just let me know, since you do want to get rid of stuff. (And by the way, you don't have to take anything! You can just drop your stuff off! I wish we would do that, but Sylvia just is too good of a little shopper, so we always end up with new stuff! But, she really enjoys it, so it's okay!)

      Sure! Clothes are always welcome! Thanks!

    Just giving everyone a heads up. We really want to get out and meet some like minded families, but we are still getting settled and today just isn't going to work. We really want to make it out to a meet-up soon. Sorry about that...

    If anyone has a particularly large amount of stuff to bring, feel free to come a little early to set it up. Right now I'm planning areas for toys/puzzles, clothes, books and movies, and then other general items. I've held several garage sales before, but this is the first time to set up inside my house, so this should be interesting! I'm looking forward to it!

    Shannon, we've had an unexpected conflict so looks like we won't be able to come to this. If anything changes, will swing by. Look forward to meeting everyone at the next event. Thanks.

    I hope everyone is collecting items to bring to our Media Madness on Sunday. Between me getting ready for a new baby and my daughter leaving for college, I have plenty of things to part with! Don't forget to sign up to bring something for our potluck lunch. I have created a form using Sign Up Genius to make it easier.
    Looking forward to seeing everyone, getting rid of the old, and getting something new!

    My wife, our 4 kids and I have recently moved back to DFW after a long dark time in rural GA (the bible belt). Looking for likeminded families to meet-up with.

    Hope to catch you all soon...I'll be house hunting in the Denton area all weekend!

    We'll have plenty of condiments like mayo and mustard and some veggies and/or fruit.
