Frugal finds and sweet stealsNing Network Spotlight
In today’s economy, most people are looking for ways to cut expenses, and the members of Swap Savers are no exception. Swap Savers is a social network for “for frugal folks who love freebies, coupons and rewards” and the features on their Ning Network allow them to share and discuss the best deals around.
A Welcome Center on the top of the middle column helps new members get acquainted with the features on Swap Savers. In the Forum, categories are based on what type of deal is being described: free stuff (general items), free sample programs and free magazines are three of the popular options. The Welcome Center also encourages members to read the blog of Cheryl Maguire, the Network Creator, for even more money-saving tips. Her most recent post is a laundry list of deals that can be found at drugstores across the country (included in her list are free candy bars and school supplies).
