Recycle your old to bring in the new!

Thanks to a great website that I have been using for years,  I have been able to recycle some of my old items out to bring in some new. I try to give my house a good spring cleaning and I find so many odds and ends items and toys that my kids don't want or need anymore. This website allows me to post the things I have available and it is only for the locals to see. If someone sees something they want they will email you and make arrangement for a pick up.

I have felt really good knowing that pretty much all of my older kids baby things went to someone who really needed them. A young single girl in college came and picked up most of my gently used girl things. My sons stuff was split up to a few different people.

I have also found many items for myself. I have gotten a set of bunk beds, side tables for a kids bedroom, and some baking pans. Some of the thing I have gotten I have transformed with a little elbow grease and some paint. 

With the economy that we are in right now everyone is in the position to be frugal. So, the next time you are cleaning out something in you basement, attic, or just looking to clean out some cupboards remember to check out Freecycle. You never know who might be in need of that something you have. The old saying goes "Someones trash is someone treasure!"
