Freecycle



Do you use Freecycle?

If there's a group in your area, you should join!

Everything posted on Freecycle is completely free. You can offer things you want to get rid of and someone who wants them will respond. You can request items you're looking for. And of course, someone may offer something you want!

We like it, not for just the free stuff, but as a way to give away items we are no longer using.

We have yard sales and donate to thrift stores and then there's stuff we just want to give away to someone who can use it. Or we don't want to haul anywhere. Or we know someone can use it but it's not really something you can donate to the thrift store. That's where Freecycle comes in very handy.

We've given away a lot and received a lot this way. I've listed some of the items to give you an idea.

Received:
  • Crib mattress and sheets.
  • Bag of dog toys.
  • Shipping boxes. 
  • CD player.
  • Bag of men's shorts.
  • DVD recorder.
Given:

  • Dining room table and chairs.
  • Vacuum cleaner.
  • Bag of old jeans and fabric for sewing.
  • Bookcases.
  • Baby food jars and containers.
  • Boxes of clothing. 
  • Computer tower.
  • Moving boxes.
Freecycle is a wonderful way to share....for free! 

**Pictures are from a recent Freecycle haul--- a big bag of dog toys! There were some really great toys included! We took out what Rock can use and will pass the rest on to someone else.

The last few times I looked into it, they did not have a group here - but this time they did! I signed up this morning :)
