The Art of Mooching

I think I'm becoming quite good at it. Mooching, borrowing, whatever you want to call it. It's good, useful, anti-consumeristic (is that a word?) as well as frugal. I have definitely taken people up on offers to borrow things in the past, but now I seek it out. I've got no shame in asking. The latest has been clothing for me and my kiddos. I was in need of some fall maternity clothes and after a quick email-BAM- practially new wardrobe. I'm not even kidding. Thanks ladies for your long sleeved items and even pants! I think of you as I put on a little Laura here, some Kelli there, a touch of Ali and Trinity... Then Asher needed some 12 month PJ's. Another email and before we knew it we were leaving the Alt's with a platic bin of fall/winter outfits (PJ's incuded) and even some BGSU wear we were hoping to have for Asher this football season. Baby girl is borrowing clothes already and she's not even out of the womb yet. Love it. So beware to those who live around me, you may just recieve an email sometime, The fan in Asher's room just died... anyone have another we could use temporiarly??? The asking options are quite vast.

So what fabulous item(s) have you mooched lately??? And PS- mooching is a two-way street so feel free to take our stuff too!

Hey - I followed over from Sharon's blog! And I love the idea of mooching, especially as I'm super cheap, so things for free are even better than just clearance as some creepy store!

Hey we have a little fan but you have to come to Cleveland to get it! (that's one way to see that baby :)

I've thought several times...if I get pregnant, I'm going to ask all my BG friends for one item of maternity you may see an email from me someday, too!
