We have communal laundry rooms where I live (student family housing) and there is a large box in each of the four laundry rooms for clothing and household items that people are giving away. It's a kind of freecycle, I suppose. 


I have gotten most of my wardrobe from the laundry rooms. Our community is very international so there are some really unique pieces that get put in the boxes. Every now and then I take my kids 'shopping' and we do the rounds and they get to bring home something - toy, shirt, etc. My 3yo's wardrobe has come from those rooms and many of our toys and games. I also find gifts for friends having babies and sometimes some really good books!


When I'm feeling really low, I find it's a wonderful pick me up.

*Having a stocked pantry, I grew up very poor so when I have food I don't worry. There's usually always some food that everyone likes.
*Lotion that smells yummy smile.gif
*Being able to see my kids smiling faces when we get to go to the park or down to the lake.
