Free: Onion sets (Barrington) Gifted - I'm not going to be able to use the whole bag I bought of these. I put approximately twenty in two bags - let me know if you want both or just one bag. Onions are a great beginner gardening project! Just make sure to water in dry times to get good sized onions.

Free: Two piece pooper scooper set (Barrington) Gifted - We moved to a home that previously had a dog and just found this outside. The clip that used to attach the rake to the scoop is broken but otherwise in good condition.

Free: Moving Supplies (Barrington) Gifted - We have about 15 medium and 20 small moving boxes, plus packing paper and some bubble wrap/large air pocket things (like those in shipped packages), and a large box meant for moving a TV available. By the time you express interest there may be a few more boxes added to the stack 🙂. These are all used, as we just recently moved. All boxes other than the TV one and the ones holding paper/bubble wrap have been re-flattened.

Free: Cloth diaper covers (Hoffman Estates) Gifted - 9 used cloth diaper covers - two of them are pocket diapers where you put your insert inside, the others are just made for an insert to lay inside. They all worked great for my son! This is just the cover part, I don't have any inserts available. I had great luck using plain old fashioned cotton prefolds with them, though.

Free: Small cat scratching post/tree (Hoffman Estates) Gifted - This is pretty much unused - turns out my cat is too big for it, and only liked batting around the ball in the bottom 🙂 it's about 23 inches tall. For reference my cat has a long build and is ten lbs.

Free: Small Litter Box (Hoffman Estates) Gifted - It's 15" x 19" x 11 3/4". It was used for less than a year - great for small or younger cats. I hosed it off, wiped with paper towels and sprayed with a bleach solution. It still doesn't look pristine, but it's not gross either 😄

Free: One bar height chair (Hoffman Estates) Gifted - The wood part is very sturdy, but the seat part comes off totally. I still sat on it with no issue, and I'm assuming it could be glued or something by someone who knows what they're doing.

Free: Blow up seesaw (Hoffman Estates) Gifted - Purchased last year. We had fun with it, but the kids got a more permanent one for Christmas. It didn't leak last time we used it last summer, but I haven't checked it this spring. Comes with the original little sticky patch thing in case of a small issue, though. It didn't come with a pump, but you're definitely going to want to have something. I used a small hand pump I had from an exercise ball, guessing a bike pump or something would work too 🙂

Free: Baby/breast milk bottles (Hoffman Estates) Gifted - Seven medela breast milk bottles, plus four extra lids. Three lansinoh momma bottles. All lightly used about two years ago and stored in a tupperware forgotten in a cupboard since (baby refused to use, ended up only breastfeeding).

Free: Car tower and cars (Hoffman Estates) Gifted - This was originally for Little People cars, so it will work with those if you have them, too. I can't seem to find ours, but we always found small matchbox cars like the ones I'm including actually worked better for some reason. Little People cars went down, but sometimes got stuck 🙂.

Free: Gently used Bed Rail (Hoffman Estates) Gifted - This requires a box spring to use. We used it for a short time for our son when the big boy bed we got was higher than we realized it would be!

Free: Slightly Grumpy Boston Fern (Hoffman Estates) Gifted - I thought I could keep this plant happy if it was misted, but the air in our home just gets too dry. If you have a window in your bathroom I think it would thrive in there. Or you could keep it with a plant saucer with rocks and a bit of water under, I just don't have a good spot to do that 🙂
