Is it wrong of me to ask for things that people no longer need?

I am so paranoid that this being our third and starting ALL over that we are not going to have everything we need when the baby comes. So I poste on craigslist if there was anybody out there that had baby things or maternity clothes that they don't need that I would greatly appreciate them. Is that wrong? I know after my older girls I didn't know what to do with the stuff that I had left over so I just go trid of it. But..... if there was somebody who needed it I would of greatly passed it on. What do you think??

  • Nothing wrong with doing that! I am always on the lookout for mom's who need my daughters things that she has outgrown.

  • I think it's a great idea, like you stated you had no idea what to do with your left over stuff and I'm sure a lot of moms feel the same. I know that I held on to mine for months before finally giving it all to Good Will because I had no need for it. You're not asking for them to buy you new things or give up stuff they are in need of. You're just asking for any left over items so no it's not bad at all. Just make sure you wash and clean everything you get before you use it.

  • I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO emberrassed! So somebody on craigslist did an RE: on my post and it was way out of context and rude. It said that maybe people shouldn't be having babies and have other people pay there wages. I am sooo emberassed now everybody is going to read that. It was not my intentions at all. My hubby makes decent money but we try to save where we can this is one area I thought would help. I can't believe it.!!!!!!
