My dh is in the military. I don’t know if all branches have it, but the Air Force has a thing called “Airman’s Attic.” Basically it’s like a Goodwill, only everything is 100% free to military people. I go quite frequently with a friend to keep my ever growing ds in clothes.
The last THREE times I’ve been there have been homemade afghans sitting there. Perfect condition, pretty colors, intricate patterns and people just gave them away. I appreciate that someone else will get some good use out of it (like my ds with the one I got for him), but it would just KILL ME if I found out someone just gave away something I made for them.
