Bye bye Freezer!

I know I've said it before, but OH BOY how I love FreeCycle! I posted about the upright deepfreeze that is adding to the clutter downstairs and within 1 hour I had 10 people eager to take it off my hands. Less than 10 minutes after posting, someone wanted my excess baby food too. I love it!

Now if only someone would take all the old office furniture I posted about. For some reason, that doesn't seem as popular. LOL!

I also put in a call to the Salvation Army about all that furniture in the garage. That experience did not leave me feeling as warm and fuzzy. First, they hung up on me twice. Then I got someone with a serious attitude problem. I know these people are volunteers, but jeez. Shouldn't it be a rule when you work for a charity that you should be, ya know, charitable???? Friendly, at the very least.

I found it interesting that they don't take appliances (they got first offer on the freezer). I guess I'll be offering the microwave to Freecycle too. Not sure yet if I can donate the old exercise equipment. They seem pretty picky about what they will and will not take. They said no to the old office furniture too.

No one wants the old office furniture, it seems. :-) Hmm. Oh! Rats... I just thought of a good selling point for that stuff. It would be good in a work shop or potting shed. If I have to list it again, I hope I remember to mention that.

Craigslist has a free heading also; you might get a wider audience there.
