So I spend some time on Freecycle and Craigslist looking for the things I want or need for the house. And I've done pretty well. Sometimes you have to be patient until the right thing comes along.
I've been watching for a kitchen set. I wanted a round table with a leaf to make it bigger, and a pedestal support so we could sit more people around it. And I found just the right thing on Craigslist.
The legs of the chairs could use some fixing up....the people I bought it from have kids and dogs. But other than that, it's a pretty nice table.
The table we had been using was one that had been left here by the previous owners. We had no use for it so I put it on Freecycle. We didn't get a single bite.
So I put it under "free stuff" on Craigslist. I got a bite or two, but nobody followed through.
I even mentioned it on Facebook. Nothing.
Finally, Hubby put it on the front lawn with a sign saying "free". And sometime during the day, someone took it.
Sometimes, all the technology in the world doesn't work as well as doing things the old-fashioned way.
