Saving and Giving

This week I'm starting something new. I got the link from The Frugal Mom about Jennifer and her Saving and Giving blog. So each month I will be participating with her about spreading the word of "Saving and Giving."

Most of you don't know but I am the owner/moderator of my area Freecycle. I see the kind hearts of my area that want to give and offer their things to other to reuse or give a new use to. I have seen many people give to young and new moms the much needed items like clothes and toys; I have seen people offer fans when the Texas summer heat gets to be too much; I have seen people give school supplies when it comes to that time of the year. My heart gets so happy to see so many people be so generous.

But this is not my story; here's my story.....
This month for my family and I has been so hectic. August 1st was my daughters birthday (I reused my 5 month olds formula cans to decorate the tables) and then my 5 month old started solids and then my now 5 year old started Kinder!! There was so much happening. Finally I kinda got settled in. On September 1st I had to get back into gear, I told myself. I got back to my routine of keeping up with household chores and my goal for the month (I have monthly goals that I set for myself) was to clean and organize the kitchen. My husband had installed the new dishwasher and I still had some birthday supplies and I had tons of baby food that I had bought. I also wanted to move the bakers rack into the pantry because it was taking up space in the dining room.

So with that almost done I had gathered lots of stuff that was stuffed in the pantry and dining room. At the same time I had noticed that there was some "Wanted" ads in Freecycle for baby girl clothes. So I got that together as well as posted some "Offer" posts for a mini chopper, manual chopper, ice cube trays (because I hate to see others buying ice), and some purses. I have yet to get some responses, but I just posted them today.

I urge for you to visit
to see what offers you can fulfill or
what you can offer!
