Freebies & Hand-me-down's

I do know that some people either don't (as crazy as that sounds) like freebies/hand-me-downs and/or how to get them but I'm here to tell you all about it!

Freebies don't always consist of just the FREE sticker from the dentist, or the FREE samples at the store! The source you have used to find me is the same source you use to get all kinds of freebies!
THE INTERNET! Amen to that because it's my guide in life lol.. ;)

I am a full-time stay at home mom of 3 kiddos.. Started out young and although I am GOOD with my money , it just doesn't always stretch to get the things you need or even some of the basics that you want...

So, through trials and tribulations... I found, drum roll please

Freecycle is the source for finding my BROYHILL his & hers dresser, with double mirrors, two night stands and a REAL crystal lamp!! CAN WE SAY WOOHHOOOOOOOOOO

This came at the perfect time for my family too.. I just found out I was expecting my third child and they would be sharing rooms...  So this was excellent and it was picked up in one stop, one place!!
Those of you who don't know Broyhill is very well built and EXPENSIVE. 

The concept of this site is to recycle and offer your unwanted items for FREE... 
This site is very easy to use.. On the main page you just type in your city and state, click go and it will find a group near you or you can browse groups as well!  They also have a few FREECYCLE products (bags, cups, t-shirts) in their store.  Check it out, because I promise you, you WILL LOVE IT!

Craigslist is a big directory not only for freebies and hand-me-down's but other great community resources and job sources as well..

Now, Craigslist, I can not list enough of what I have gotten here..
Excellent condition clothing, carseat, high chair, maternity clothes, double stroller  - one stop- FREE
I have also gotten toys, movies, games a table and more.. As well as very well priced items!! 

Ofcourse in order to keep the great cycle  of giving going. I have offered up my fair share of freebies too!!
This site is easy to use as well. Select your state on the right... Then you can filter by city at the top... Within the main part of the site you will find categories such as community, forsale  (this is also where free is) jobs and more!


A new-age resource is bloggers sites as well. Many bloggers will list freebies, giveaways, contests and other great resources.. So check out these bloggers..

Other great sites for freebies are:  -  A great resource for all kinds of kids crafts and other what-nots for the kiddos. - A HUGE database of places that your kiddo can eat, YES FREEE!!  I know I have thought about this a time or two.. But I can't keep up and things are always changing. I don't wanna get my hopes up for free lunch and then have to pay $10 a kid! So check this out!
