When I first joined freecycle, I thought, why are these people just giving stuff away when you could sell it and make a few bucks.. Well, I’m glad they DO! I put up a offer ad and a wanted ad.. Got people to take what I was offering.. got one bite on the wanted ad, which was a fridge, we need a fridge for the garage for the baby shower..
One gentleman emailed me and said he had one, but that he couldn’t just give it away, he wanted $50, which wouldn’t have been so bad only he didn’t have electricity because he was about to move out… but HOW would we be able to tell it really worked? So I backed out of that one..
While I was talking to the girl about pickup arrangements for the item we were offering, I was telling her about the fridge thing and she said she has a fridge that her Mom didn’t need anymore that was just sitting in her backyard, that they were just going to haul it off.. I said I WANT IT! lol So, we delivered the item to her and picked up the fridge last night! Yeah, it needs cleaning, but at least we can use it for the party…. and we don’t either have to rent one, buy one or go without, which was going to happen at this point..
So I’m thankful for FREECYCLE at this point! Thanks to Stacy and her husband Jose for being so nice and not abducting and killing us last night, LOL
