    Continued from the very, very long Freebies thread Part Cinq.

    To make the move easier, I moved the most recent posts from the previous thread to this one. Please check the last pages of the previous threadf or older posts and replies, and continue your posts and replies in this one.

    ---

    We know there are a lot of computer junkies out there who just can't afford stuff because of school expenses or because mom and dads budget is too tight. Many of us have all kinds of goodies sitting around and often we just need some odd little piece of hardware that's difficult to find. This is where you can get them for free. In order for this thread to work we're going to need a little generosity.

    Rules:

    If you request something or receive an item from someone please give back to the thread.

    Don't be greedy.

    Post the name of the person that gets your item.

    New members should offer something before making a request.

    Try to offer items that people have use for.

    It's free so recipient pays shipping.

    When paying through Paypal please add 2.9% + $0.30 in paypal fees. These would otherwise be sellers fees but since there is no 'seller' the buyer should pay this fee.

    Be generous.

    Only freebies, no selling or trading.

    No spamming/advertising

    Take advantage of Heatware. -- (just a suggestion)

    Have fun! :)

    For those living in Southern California, 21 Choices Frozen Yogurt is offering a FREE "Tres Small" (their smallest size). 21 Choices has locations in Old Town Pasadena (De Lacey/Colorado), Claremont Village (Indian Hill/1st), and North Claremont (Foothill/Mountain).

    Visit their website, 21choices.com for location and daily choice information.

    Those who know the "FroYo" scene know that 21 Choices is different from Pinkberry/Red Mango in that they serve different flavors everyday, almost always use organic fruits, and often use delicious pre-mixed ingredients like Nestle Crunch or Circus Animal Cookies.
