Request: large Hefty storage bin lids x2 Expired - these Hefty bins used to be sold at Lowe's but they are apparently changing over to their in-house brand and aren't stocking Hefty any more. So just in case you happen to have unused lids, I'm looking for two of the large lids about 24 inches by 16 inches. They are used with bins that have blue 'locking' handles that fold up over the short edge of the lid. I don't need the bins, just the lids, but if you want to get rid of both bin and lid, that also solves my problem :) I will pick up from a location of your convenience. Thank you and happy new year!

Free: OtterBox holster for Defender case, not sure which phone [20886] Expired - Found an OtterBox holster for their Defender case line, but I'm not sure which phone it fits.

Free: extra shorts and socks for soccer etc practice? [20886] Gifted - When I used to coach youth soccer, parents often left me their uniform kits if their kids were moving to another activity or league, and I would pass those on to other parents as much as possible. Well, it turns out I accumulated a lot of shorts over the years :) Maybe you can use some extra shorts or socks for practice this season? I also have a bunch of numbered jerseys (no player names) in various sizes but of course they have club-specific logos so maybe not so appealing, but let me know if you can use an extra jersey to practice in (mostly red or white jerseys but a few in other colors) and what size you need, it's very likely I have at least one that will fit your player.

Free: large heavy duty duffel bag with issues [20886] Expired - heavy duty duffel bag that is showing signs of age - the material at two of the bottom outside corners has split and created holes at the outer seam, and on a third corner the material has split but not enough to make a hole yet.

Still usable for carrying around large relatively light items that may get wet (in its current state we used it for taking towels and linens on vacations, and bringing laundry back). I wouldn't put it on an airplane though given the damage. Measures about 30 inches long by 15 inches wide by 14 inches high. Dark blue. one end has some tape residue where we had a name taped on during a trip to a summer camp, and on the inside there is a couple pieces of duct tape where my son tried to patch one of the holes :) Figured I would check if anyone can use it before trashing it.
