The following is part of my series of Fabulous Frugal Finds sent in by Non-Consumer Advocate readers. Today’s column features a super cute sleeping bag score from Freecycle. Thank you so much to Janet for sending in her pictures and story!

Fabulous Frugal Find -- Sleeping Bag

“Here is a picture of a sleeping bag that I just got today for my 5 year old daughter.  It cost me nothing (except gas to drive a couple miles) as I got it from Freecycle.  I’ve wanted to get my daughter a sleeping bag but couldn’t justify spending the money on something she doesn’t really need.  I saw this posted and it was very girly and she loves it because it is pink with butterflies.  Now she can have a sleep over at gramas without having to sleep in grama and grampas army green adult size sleeping bag.”
