We have two freecycle groups around here- one allows the first-come-first-serve stuff and the other one doesn't. Personally, I wish they would both ban that idea- it really drives me nuts when people do that. It just seems so inconsiderate~ I really wanted a costume for dd last week but the woman gave out her address to a bunch of different people, so I said nevermind. I'd have to load the kids into the car, drive across town, and then there isn't even the guarantee of getting the item. Huge waste of time and gas. I wouldn't want to put other people through that.
I'm much prefer to offer it to one person and if they don't follow through, move on to the next. If the same thing happens, I just take it to Goodwill.
