Yesterday I received some nice items from Freecyle: a large trash bag full of tshirts and 3 boxes of Mason jars. After hubby brought the shirts home, I went through the bag. I was thrilled with all of my "new" shirts and tried a few of them on right then and there.

I was left wondering why people don't love getting free clothing as much as I do. The joy I felt from my free clothes is not greater that the thrill one would get from those purchased. If fact, I think that I'm more in love with my free shirts because I have nothing invest in them. These are all very nice shirts, most are name brands from "mall stores" or new looking Haines Her Way tees. I saved at least $20 on these shirts (as compared to buying shirts for myself at $1 - $2 each).

Didn't realize hubby lost his job. Sorry to hear that. Also check out Angel Ministries and Share for food.

Good Luck with your art work. I hope you post some of your artwork on your blog.

I agree with you completely. Freecycle is such a great concept! We donate to it , but not as often as we should - this is a good reminder!
