In my town is a Facebook page called 'Buy Nothing Mukilteo' where many people post items they no longer need or want. Other people put in a request to be selected to receive them. People put amazing items on this page and gift them to others in the community.
I'm a grandmother trying to not spend lots of money on my Grandkids and still spoil them. I watch this Facebook page and pick up various things that others have made available.
I've received a mini pie baker, Star Wars PEZ dispensers (4) and a watering can for the garden. People are very nice on this page. It is a pleasure to watch and restores my belief in the generosity of people.
