I feel bad asking for hand me downs but..................

This is our third baby and all 's we have is a crib and I don't mind second hand stuff at all. So I posted a bulletin on MySpace to people i know if they have anything baby they don't need that we would SOOOOOOOO greatly appreciate it. Is that wrong of me to do? I mean our oldest is 9 and second is 7 in march so wwe really only have a crib. Was that wrong of me to ask or okay?

  • Some people might think it's a little tacky, others might think it's really tacky, and others might say AWESOME...I know who to give all that crap I've been hoarding for year to.

    You can't please everyone:) Hopefully you get what you need.

  • I don't see it as a bad thing. Money's tight for everyone right now. If you need something, there's nothing wrong with trying to get it free or cheaper before you go spend money you may/may not have on it.

  • I don't see a problem with it. Craigslist is a good place to post a little note, looking for___? There is also a lot of baby stuff on there you could buy very cheap. Bags of clothes, bouncers,boppy pillows. I have a wooden rocker up on Craigslist for sale. You should have a baby shower as well.

  • It wasn't wrong at all. I think those people think of it as AWESOME!, hey ? i can be of help or my stuff will help somebody that needs it so it is going to a good cause, thinking hey? glad I kept it and now it is going to good use! instead of having it put up and getting old. Better yet, they will be more than happy to help you out and they will be giving it to somebody they know, a friend! What are friends for!
