    I just hooked on this site this past week. Everything is free. My family is real green as of 2008. We went from 4 bags of trash to less than 1 a week. I got rid of some stuff that I didn't need and people came and picked it up no questions. I love to recycle. Freecycle.org

    Used to be you could look at Freecycle without joining a group. Is there any way to do that now? I hate joining groups, really.

    I signed up to two groups one in my home town and other at work. There are lots of good stuff here. This community likes to recycle.

    I have yet to be able to get our stupid local Freecyle page to work for me.

    Maybe it's because I went into it with a cranky attitude because I hate to sign up for groups too. Can they tell you're angry when you sign in? [​IMG]


    Having said that... I have friends who love it... it just doesn't work for me. [​IMG]

    Our local freecycle is more like a Want Ads.

    There's never anything to GET except some old clothes, but everyday requests for stuff roll in.

    my freecycle group is great there is a lot of wants yes...but just as many freebies up for grabs....and also if someone is gonns come and take my "trash" away for me...hey all the power to ya!...when i say trash i am speaking stuff that would normally go to the dump or to the local church but i cant afford the gas to always be running stuff to the church...

    i have a thing about "clutter"...i absolutely hate it so i am going through my kids rooms and linen closet on a regular basis..dh is a pack rat so i go through the basement often too.

    my biggest pet peeves about freecycling is no shows...if i have taken the time to respond to your inquiry then at least have the decency to show up for something that i have set aside for you because more times then not there was others asking for the same thing that you responded to and i have turned them down

    Same here, mjsdhs...I hate when they don't show...
    In the past couple of days, I feel like I've been in Circuit city. I wanna TV-big screen, plasma, huh?
    I wanna exercise bike-top of the line blah blah
    I got my DS a guitar off of it because he was interesting in learning to play. I've decluttered with it too.
