Another man's trash is...

One of the online groups I belong to has been talking about Freecycle. Well, the curious cat that I am, I had to check it out. WOW! It's a site where "another man's trash is another man's treasure" and the treasures are free!!!

What a great concept! You sign up as a free member and then join a group in your area. You can list things you want or things you want to get rid of. Then someone who is interested contacts you and you just give it to OR you get what you want...FREE! This is a great way to recycle and re-use those items you no longer want, need or are just tired of and someone else gets the joy of having it.

I love the concept but just a little word on your privacy and security. It would probably be wise not to give out your address or personal information and meet some place away from your home. Most people I believe are honest but it's always wise to be on the safe side.

Hi, stopping by via city of clay.

I really like freecycle too, although I don't use it as much in my current local as I did in my last. I have some large items to give away and have been reluctant to have people come by and pick up. (I did at my last place, but I was moving so it was okay.)
