Are you guys aware of Freecycle? I always describe it as being similar to Craigslist, only better, because everything is 100% free! You may remember back in November that I found our dog, Jack, this way. It's really pretty cool, and sometimes you can find fabulous stuff.
Stuff like this--my latest Freecycle find!
It's a brand new, Starbucks French press.
Now honestly, I'm not the coffee connessiour in our house and and when I responded to the offer, I wasn't entirely sure what a French press was. This is more of what I had in mind.
But, I'm happy with it nonetheless. And am hoping to try it out tonight when J is home to share some coffee with me. :)
After I dropped the kids off this morning, I drove to the lady's house to pick it up. It was snowing and was a big mess. Her neighborhood streets weren't plowed, were very hilly, and a couple of times I didn't think Minnie-the-van was going to make it. It looked like this outside...and normally, if it wasn't snowing, you'd be able to see mountains in the background. Today, they were covered with snow clouds.
Since it was 18 degrees and so dreary and cold, I decided I needed to make a Starbucks run on the way home. When I saw the drive-thru line wrapped around the building, I decided to park and go inside. So glad I did because I was able to peruse the merchandise shelf, and noticed the exact same French press I'd just picked up for free sporting a retail price of $39.99.
I think I scored!
Check out Freecycle sometime.
