The Freecycle Network- Changing the World One Gift at a Time

Ok, so I know that Freecycle is not a WAHM, or even a product really. But I do think that it is such an important resource and want to make sure that you all know about it. It is a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer. Membership is free.
We have found (and given) all sorts of stuff on Freecycle. I needed a sewing machine- found it on Freecycle, had an extra coffee table- gave it away to someone who needed it, someone posted a wanted ad for a sleeper sofa- we had one that we wanted to get rid of. It really is wonderful.
I mean, saving money and the environment at the same time while also getting rid of does not get much better than that.

So head on over and find your local freecycle group now.
