Freecycle ... I'm addicted!

Do you freecycle? Pat yourself on the backs if you do. If you don't, why ever not!? Freecycle for those that do not know is .. and I quote ...

" ... a nonprofit organization and a movement of people interested in keeping good stuff out of the country's landfills. Check out for other cities and information on the movement!"

This week I lucked out and was the lucky reciepent of three offers. I received a Little Tikes Basketball Goal (in good used condition, some fading). A bag full of school supplies (manilla file folders, envelopes, blank sentence strips, index cards and three children's journals). The third item was a Crayola Crayon Maker that has only been used once. The previous owner didn't have the patience for it, so kindly offered it on Freecycle!!

How's that for frugality and budget-makers?! I'm off now to return the good deeds of others and offer some items on freecycle too!!

Yea for you posting again! Don't worry, I won't get my hopes up with the holidays I am sure you will be plenty busy :O)

I haven't gotten on freecycle, but I have lots of friends who have been successful. I hang out A LOT on craigslist. Not to different of an idea, but I get to make a wee bit of cash.
