I have recently joined the two local Freecycle groups. I am getting rid of all my baby stuff (YAY!) and moving into the toddler/preschool phase.
1 - When responding to a freecycle ad, I have been saying along the lines of "Hi, I am very interested in XYZ if no one else has claimed it yet. I live in A Town and work in B Town so could pick up either on my lunch or after work/evening time. Thanks!" Is that on okay response? I have only responded to a few ads and don't want to sound like a gimme pig.
2 - After I go pick up my item, should I reply with an email stating that I did receive it and thank the giver for it or not? I feel that I should reply with a thank you and say how much I look forward to using 'new' item but don't want to come across as weird.
Thanks for any input on this.
