    Question Full Circles

    Have any of you heard of or used Full Circles to find free stuff and to recycle your old stuff?

    I've been using them for years and they are really good in our area. Occasionally we get crappy stuff, but we pass it on or just take it out of circulation by giving it to one of the thrift stores to deal with.

    I've built up a fabric stash for sewing, my wardrobe, book collection, etc. this way.

    I assume it's like Freecycle -used it all the time in Ontario - gave away so much and received some as well. It's pretty bad here as at least one mod does not post anything for up to two months so Ipretty much gave up on it and take things toValue Village.

    Yeah, it's like Freecycle. But I like Full Circles better. Seems to me the local group know each other pretty well. I had a serendipitous chance to meet one of the mods through a friend when I showed up to pick some stuff up one night from his mom's place. It was great! Nice guy.

    This weekend I was able to pick up craft paints, and a glider rocker through Full Circles. I love our local outfit. I now have a new favourite chair!

    Just an update. I have dropped our Full Circles group. There was some in-fighting and the mods quit moderating stuff. We ended up with a group of people posting junk all the time. Just not worth it. I had a couple of instances where people were supposed to pick up one thing, and picked up another. Or more to the point, took ALL the plants for six people, instead of just the ones intended for them. I decided it was not worth the headache.

    We do not need any more stuff anyways! And there are easier ways to get rid of and acquire things. I have friends and we like to share. I had a friend phone me today asking me if I wanted some lily bulbs to plant in the yard...leftovers from the church Easter flower arrangement. I said 'sure!' I never turn down plants.
