buy-sell buttonI am very excited about this new feature here at Saving Cents with Sense – and for those of you astute readers, you may have already noticed the new “Buy/Sell” tab in the top header. We have teamed up with Ubokia.com to provide you with a marketplace full of like-minded individuals. You can now buy, sell, trade, and share, with fellow fans!

You can find the marketplace by clicking on the Buy/Sell tab at the top of the page, or by clicking on “Marketplace” under the “Frugal Living” tab.

Why did we partner with Ubokia?

Ubokia is a completely new way to shop online. They have flipped the process, giving the buyer more control over the things that matter to them. Buyers start by posting exactly what they WANT, sit back, and let the offers come to them! This is a great way for our community to help each other get the stuff we need, and get rid of stuff we no longer use, all at great prices.

Think of Ubokia as being an online garage sale where you are encouraged to share exactly what it is you are looking for. The system will automatically connect the right buyer with the right seller. This should really make our lives easier and provide us an opportunity to help each other out.

It’s free to sign up and use, so head on over and check it out! See what everyone is wanting, and maybe you can clear up some space at your place!

Some ideas of how to use it:

One of the coolest parts about the Ubokia marketplace, and a reason why we partnered with them, is because they are really here to help communities (like ours!). Although the main function is to buy and sell stuff, a WANT can simply be someone looking for free advice! Here are a few ideas of how we hope you will use our new marketplace feature…

– Helping a new mom get a used stroller, at a fair price.

– Trade baby clothes, for toddler clothes.

– Ask for help or advice, or even a new dinner recipe!

– Group together for group buys (great way to save money).

There are plenty more ways you can use this marketplace, but there is a few to get you thinking. Feel free to comment below and tell us how you might see yourself using it! And you can find out more at Ubokia.com.
