The Crazy Suburban Mom: Freecycle Karma

Freecycle Karma

The party went well and there was no snow (and I'll post more about that this week). The house was clean and because I'd decluttered for a week...

Plus these two things ...

1. The house was actually clean beyond the surface so when someone wanted to hang their coat in my closet or lay it on my bed they could without me wanting to vomit and ...

2.  I ended up with this...


and this...


See because I've been paying attention to Freecycle
so much I happened to see them come through!

And oh baby!  Do you know how long I've wanted a coffee table and another table to replace a rather shabby Ikea table? 

A year.  The answer's a year.

I've been looking at yard sales and estate sales for that long, and nothing.  I found nothing and than yesterday someone listed these tables on Freecycle and I picked them up this morning and they even have Heywood Wakefield stamped on their bottoms which makes them ligit.  

The woman said she thought they were from 'around 65' and I think that stamp makes that spot on.  They need some cleaning and maybe if I ever get a few bucks I'll have them refinished but I'm so happy to have found them.

All in all a fabulous week!

We've used Freecycle quite a bit, both to get & to give.

I love Freecycle. I had gotten so many goodies for my boys, unfortunately the freecycle for my new town is funky and doesn't work like it should.

I am in dire need of Spring cleaning. It is almost something I dread like what mysterious things I might find. I have been fairly good at keeping up with normal cleaning, but I still get surprised from things my kid shoved under different stuff in the

By the way, I work as a virtual assistant of The Healthy Moms ( ), the site is fairly new and I thought I would drop by some mom and health related sites to spread the word.
