Parent Resource: Getting and Giving

Thanks to Rivky Hazan for this little winner:

Here’s one way for parents of limited incomes to acquire gifts and toys for their children…  and also to give to others by sharing their old “stuff.”

The freecycle network enables people who need to get rid of things to give them to people who can use them; my sister got a new collection of Amelia Bedelia books for her daughter, absolutely free!

One word of caution: Freecycle does inundate the email inbox with every single person who wants to get rid of something, so signers-up beware….
