Frugal Mommy - Chatham and Kent County

"It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot tougher to make a difference." ~Tom Brokaw

Frugal Mommy knows how expensive it is to have children. I know as I am a new mom with twin babies. My mission with Frugal Mommy is to build a community who's main objective is to help parents save money and recycle baby/children items.

3. Once accepted in the group, you must post at least one "OFFERING" post (ie. you must give away something FREE) before proceeding to receive any free items or post any "WANTED" posts. You should use "OFFERING" or "WANTED" to begin every Subject line of every item you post.

4. No general posts asking for everything a baby needs and those 'to pick up for a friend' are allowed.


6. There is absolutely no obligation for you to give your item to the first reply. It is your item and you can choose who you want to give it to.

7. Ensure you post who you decide to give it to, in the comments of your "OFFERING" post. We don't want people making trips for nothing. Just be considerate of others.
