No. I have never given anything away or gotten. I have looked but saw nothing.

Yes, many, many times both given and received.  We believe in reuse or recycle as much as possible.

Freecycle is great, but they changed the website for my area and I don't like it as much.  Craig's lsit also is fine here.  For both, I have an email address I use just for those sites.

I've never used FreeCycle.  I should check it out.  I've used Craigslist quite a few times to sell or give stuff away.

I have just started using the FreeCycle in my area. Back at Christmas I got two brand new hoodies that I gave to my DD's new boyfriend. I just gave away a tons of kids games and books. I have about three more sets of miscellaneous things on there but no one is bitting.

I give away more than I get.

I have given toys and clothing. I have gotten books.

Yes, freecycle years ago.
Lots on craigslist, but not where we live now.....things are too far away that are posted there. If you have to drive hours to get skmething, its really not a deal.
But we have alot of local sell, trade, buy facebook pages that are good. Ive gotten some great things that way.

I've used FreeCycle to get rid of a lot of the clothes the grandchildren grow out of and also on Craigslist we've gotten rid of stuff as well as bought stuff. Our gorgeous oak bedroom set and a large family tent were two of the best deals.

I give alot of stuff, but don't  use a site.  I give stuff at DAV or goodwill
