If you are like me I hate throwing away good stuff. Things that I may no longer need, but at the same time dont want to contribute to cluttering the landfields. Well there is a group Nationally that is addressing this issue. And you can get some good stuff in exchange. Its called Freecycle.org! I have gotten great baby clothes for my daughter, many of them with tags still on. It is all about community helping reuse good quality items.

I've given away anything from kitchen items (like tupperware), to a twin bed, clothes, toys, small appliances, a/c's, even extra compost or wood

That is some great stuff. We have someone locally here that gives away starts to new plants, and extra food from their fall harvest.
