Freecycle

I wanted to share with folks that may not know of this ingenious site. Its called Freecycle and unless you live in a cave I am pretty sure EVERYONE has heard of it.

I have been very lucky in receiving some amazing things and giving some amazing things on Freecycle.

We posted a few years ago that we were SEARCHING for a movable Basketball goal and this lady responded that she had one that her daughter used a few times then moved off to college.

So we borrowed the neighbors truck and went to get it. Only to get there and realize this was like a $500 goal. Hubby was shocked that some one was just giving it away.

another time I was looking for a 55 gallon drum and posted and within minutes I had 8 people respond saying they had one I could have.

Well I noticed the other day a lady looking for a queen mattress and box spring. Well we just happen to have one that is in good shape but needs a new home. So I feel pretty good that I was able to help this lady out.

So now I am going through our garage and closets and POSTING, POSTING, POSTING all this free stuff that is in great shape but needs a new home.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONATED OR RECEIVED FROM FREECYCLE.

What was your TREASURE THAT YOU WERE BLESSED WITH?

Hey Mindy! I have no idea how to find your email address on your blog but I just wanted to say THANK YOU!! I was your swap recipient and the stuff you sent is awesome :) Seriously, I love love love it! I kinda have a thing for coasters (like, I take them from every restaurant I go to) and the postcard journey was creative and fun! I have never been anywhere near Texas so this was super fun :) You rock, girl!! THANKS AGAIN!!
