Friday Freebies - Freecycle

Looking for freebies? Well, you probably won't have to look much farther than your own neighborhood. Check out  Freecycle. This is a nonprofit organization with groups all over the world. This is a forum for you to post your freebies; as well as a place for you to find things other people are ready to pass on to a new home. The kinds of items vary from electronics, toys, baby items, clothing, household items, furniture... the possibilities are endless! Here's the blurb from their website:
Welcome! The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,873 groups with 6,889,000 members across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by entering it into the search box above or by clicking on “Browse Groups” above the search box. Have fun!
First, you will need to sign up for an account. When you've got an account, find your local group, and join in! These are moderated email lists, so you won't have to worry about spam. I like that these groups help people find new homes for items in your own community. Check it out!
