I love FREECYCLE!

I joined our local FREECYCLE group recently.

It's such a great idea!  You OFFER want is still good and usable... and ASK for what you need!

A treadmill...
A few weeks ago I connected with a woman who had an older version treadmill to give away.  She had gotten a new one... and this one had to go.  So... I got it!  It works great for me!!!

Yarn...
I had a box of yarn that was just sitting around... so I OFFERED it!  It's gone!

Artist's Easel...
A water color artist had a homemade easel to give away.  I've been wanting one for my mother-in-law who is a newish oil painter!  Going to get it this week!

What a great way to recycle our good stuff!!!!

What a great idea. You can give away things that you no longer use and in return get things that you need. It is sort of a transfer station that many towns have now a days.
