I've had great luck getting stuff, terrible luck giving stuff away. Makes me crazy when people don't show, or show and then decide it's not good enough for them.

when i respond wanting something, i always say:
i would really love this!, or i really need one of these!
i could pick it up tonight or anytime this week as it works for you
hope to hear back from you!
do you think that's too pushy? as a sahm i DO have the freedom to pick things up immediately most of the time, so i've figured that might make me more likely to be the one picked......
although as far as i can tell, our freecycle has an unspoken rule of first come, first served
