I love my FREECYCLE!

Ya'll know about Freecycle, right?

The Freecycle Network is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns.

The Freecycle Network was started in May 2003 to promote waste reduction and help keep land from being taken over by landfills. The Network provides a forum to "recycle" unwanted useable items rather than throw them away. One person's trash can truly be another's treasure!

In the past few years, I have given away 2 computers, 2 small boy's bikes, a window air conditioning unit, boy's clothing, and much much more!

I have recieved a Men's bike, a milk-glass lamp, perennials for my garden, canning jars, and a twin-over-full bunk bed.

Check out the Freecycle group available in your area! It's a great solution for a global problem and might help fill a need your family has too!

  • GigoIt.com is a improvement over Freecycle where free items are listed. It has a lot of advantages over Freecycle like pictures and search and it's easier for beginners to pick up.There are lots of advanced features too, like RSS, a Google Earth layer, and gmail-style conversation views. I hope you check it out.
