    Yesterday my daughter gave me a stack of her hoodies that were all too small for her and my hubby had asked me to freeshare the old tree. So we posted an add on our freeshare group. Within 7 minutes we had several replies and within 2 hours items were being picked up. I was very surprised at how fast it people replied as not only is our town small in population so is our county. So I just wanted to post this as a reminder to everyone that what you no longer can use someone else could really use (especially children's clothing and toys). Most people are very happy with giving you a time frame they will be there and you can set items on the curb or porch for them to come get. The economy isn't good right now and you might be surprised at how many people would appreciate jackets and things you no longer can use.

    Just be careful. I gave away some decent furniture I didn't want and the people who showed up stole from me.

    I'm afraid to post for that same reason. What if the people are casing the joint?
