Do you Freecycle? I do, and I've gotten and given many nice things this way. Recently, I've received 3 small area rugs, a complete math curriculum for my youngest, and today I am off to retrieve a small dog crate for my new doggy.
Freecycle is an excellent way to keep things in your community but out of the landfills.
