I found this listing under ‘free stuff’ on craigslist.org. It made me smile. This is a great example of being mindful about our resources.

for some reason i own 2 blue fuzzy lined little boys crocs size 9. seemed reasonable until i noticed that they are both for the left foot. since our kids seem to have one right and one left foot these will not do us a whole lot of good. perhaps you have the matching right shoe, or you just really like fuzzy crocs, or you need them for anything…..?
also for free, a bag of plastic easter eggs. half have never been used. half had cereal in them for easter (kids dont eat candy) but are now empty and generally clean.
having a Hawaiian themed wedding and still need a Vail? boy are you in luck!
Now honestly, what would you have done with the 2 left shoes? I would not have thrown them away, I would have given them to the thrift store. When the thrift store found they were unmatched with ‘right’ shoes, more than likely, they would have pitched them in the trash. Kudos to the lady that listed these! Freecycle.org and craigslist.org are both great places to list stuff you don’t want or need anymore, and the people that do want it will come pick it up right from your house. If you’re not comfortable with that, you could meet them somewhere public and complete your transaction.
