Have you noticed the number of resale stores have increased? Habitat For Humanity, Salvation Army, Goodwill and even resale designer clothing stores.
There is a terrific national organization called The Freecycle Network with local affiliates nearby where you can post an item online to be given away — or find something you’re looking for — for free. This is one of the best kept secrets around but maybe not for long. You’ll find it at http://www.freecycle.org.
