freepeats.org

Today I discovered something called freepeats.org. It’s a great website where people list free kid, baby, & maternity freebies. You offer what you no longer need and those who need it send emails as request. There’s even a forum where you can post the things that you need in case someone happens to want to offer you that item. It’s very similar to my favorite Yahoo Group: Freecycle. I was dismayed to find that the closest freepeats group is located in Raleigh and sent a request to the administrator to get a group started here in Greenville. I would be elated to have one here. Freecycle is fabulous, but one geared more towards the things that moms need would make it very convenient. I given away and received many things throughout the pregnancy and afterwards.

With freecycle I was able to receive things such as a Graco highchair, a breadmaker, an Eddie Bauer bouncer, a carrier, an Avent Manual Breastpump, a bassinet, a sewing machine, barstools, etc. The best part? These items were all FREE! I simply picked them up from various homes around town.

I highly recommend registering with StrongMoms for those who are expecting. Though I am breastfeeding and will not need it, I received two full-size cans of Similac formula in the mail for simply registering. That’s at least a $30 savings for the mom that will receive them via Freecycle.
