I placed a add on craigslist for free baby stuff. Bouncer, swing ,clothes , baby tub, those things you strap baby to your chest, bigger boys clothes and a play mat. I'm looking to get rid of it asap. I'm sick or looking at it. I was going to donate it but thought someone can actually need things.

I got like 15 responses. I emailed first person still no answer . Emailed second person. She said she can walk and get clothes but we will far like 30 drive. I don't know if I should continue emailing other back or wait till first one to email back or second one find a ride.

What would you do?

I did put in add will meet in public place. I'm taking my husband with

I try to have the first come first serve policy. Anyone can tell you a sob story to try and make you hold items. I would contact everyone and just let them know who ever gets it first takes the stuff home.

Over here they make a profit off of the things donated. I called and asked.So it's not helping someone who is in need.

Goodwill. Seems like you're going through to much hassle to get rid of it that way.
