Freecycle Is Genius!
Freecycle helped me moved a lot of items in a short span of time, saving me a lot of time and gas and plus it was great for my heart! I had a garage full of junk that my ex left behind and a house full of furniture that I wanted to get rid of before making the move across the US. I wanted to get rid of what I no longer needed, no use for and didn't like anymore. I did not have the time to have a garage sale nor did not need money from them. I was ready to give it all away for free, so I listed many offers day after day of all sorts of things on Freecycle. It was a great success! People wanted what I had to offer within 24 hours and came to take them off my hands. This saved me so much gas money in hauling them to thrift stores or landfill. I was really happy to see people have appreciation for something that they would use or needed. It felt great to clear out some clutter, downsize and start fresh, living my life more simplier.
If I had a bunch of knick-knacks or various items that were too varied to list individually, I would do a free table out front with a "Free" sign on it and let Freecyclers know that I had a "free items table" available for their taking. I did this several times and every time, it was cleaned out! Wow! Don't underestimate the power of Freecycle. That one thing that you think no one would want does actually get taken!
