we will be swapping out whatever you want to give or buy - the maximum amt to be spent is $20-40. you will be assigned a partner and you send your package directly to that person. i am trying to get a consensus of the cost? not sure if everyone may think that is too much- i want us all to agree

any thoughts or ideas ladies

I've never participated in a swap before, so I'm also curious about the process as well as what exactly we'll be swapping this month. I'm single and live alone in sunny (extremely expensive) Florida, so $20 is plenty good for me.
Happy Easter to all!

I agree with $20...
Economy is TOUGH and we don't want to spend too much in postage. Maybe for birthday months your assigned partner can do a little something extra?

Just thinking aloud. =)
