A couple suggestions:

1) Find a local fish store near you that will give you store credit
for your plant clippings.   I haven't paid for fish food in over
a year thanks to my plants.   I can normally get $10-$15 for a good
sized sword plant.  

2) Trade your plant clippings by mail with other people, to get new
plants that you can't find locally.  Until just recently, I was doing
a trade every week or two.   Got some darn nice plants in the deal!

3) Send your excess plant clippings to those less fortunate!  Lately,
I've been mailing out one or two boxes a week.   Cost to ship a
small box of plants is only $3.20 thru Priority Mail.  I normally
ask the recipient pay $5.00 to cover shipping costs, and the cost
the plastic bags and boxes.
