Do You Freecycle? Do you know what Freecycle is?

I love Freecycling. It's like a Free Yard Sale. I give a lot of stuff away too. I love knowing it's staying out of landfills and that others get good use of something I no longer need.

  • I love freecycle!! We've gotten SO much stuff off of it.. including a Piano that we found out can be worth A LOT of money! Being a one income Military family, Freecycle is one of the best resources for us to stretch our money! It's fabulous!

  • Unfortunately we don't have a Freecycle Group around here and seemingly nobody who is interested. We have an Annual Yard Sale Day in our Town, I think that knowing they can make a few bucks why give your stuff away. "Greed" the Root of all Evil, lol.

  • I love freecycle. I have given away and received quite a few things. It is nice to see that people around here actually give stuff to others. There are even a few people who have "Free for alls" where you can bring a bag and take what you want, but you can also drop off stuff for others.
    Its a great idea, it saves the environment and someone who is in need of something can usually find it there.

  • I like freecycle, too. I haven't taken or given anything yet, but I don't need anything at this time. I tried to get rid of a nice dinette- round with a leaf to make it oval- when we finally got a dining room table. The only person on freecycle who expressed an interest at all wasn't interested because we weren't including the chairs, which I wanted to keep to use for extra quests. I thought, huh? I am offering you a table in very good condition, for free, and someone, who said they wanted a table, refused it because the chairs don't come with it? Anyway, as it turns out I had the bright idea to move the table into an area off the kitchen and it fits perfectly there and we use it for casual meals.

  • I am glad to see there are other freecyclers here. There are still lots of people who don't know about it. More people who know the better. It's such a great idea.

    What's the collest or funniest thing you've ever seen offered/asked for? I saw someone ask for a rooster. A real live rooster. And they got it!!!!!

    Bmat-That table things is nuts. It comes as is. Get your own chairs, lol. People even offer broken things on ours and it becomes somebody's treasure.
