We have all been in need unexpectedly, the washing machine breaks, the freezer is leaking or your child simply outgrew that twin bed. If you need something and I mean really need it, why not check around and see if someone you know has one that they don’t use or need anymore. It is as easy as a quick email, text or Facebook post. You might be surprised how many of your own friends and family throw things out when they upgrade. If no one you know can help you, always try freecycle.org or craigslist.org. There are great super cheap or even free items to be found on those sites. If you find yourself having to purchase a replacement. Then look to buy used, at garage sales or thrift shops. You can find a bargain if you look around long enough. Buying used and saving the difference is a great way to live. You are recycling and saving money which are two things you won’t ever regret.
