    It's a website where people post, and take, items of all kinds for free. No trading, just free. It's an honor system thing, so of course people really aren't supposed to just TAKE but also offer up items they no longer use. I like it a lot, just get frustrated at people who say they'll come but...

    Ok, I know not everyone sits at their computer all day like I do (well, a good part of the day) but if you respond to someone saying you want their item, the person gives you their address, shouldn't you at least acknowledge and perhaps give an approximate time? Date? I have had six people...

    First of all, let me say that I love FreeCycle. I use it often, both giving and receiving. BUT...I just listed a pasta maker. I bought it some time ago via the web, stored it forever, took it out to use it, and realized that the clamp doesn't fit any flat surface in my house. More trouble...

    I couldn't decide WHERE to post this! Freecycle helps to reduce, reuse, recycle things you no longer need to someone who can put it to good use. It is frugal too! After my mom died, I offered all sorts of things that were perfectly usable, not worth having a garage sale for, etc. -...

    A posting popped up on our local Freecycle list of a set of TWG newsletters. I emailed to see if they were still available. They were and I went out on my bike across town to pick them up. They were issues 1-59. I have the books and most of the material is the same, but they are fun to read...
