I finally did it. I’ve been meaning to use Freecycle for awhile (we have a ton of crap around the house, some of it from working on the house, some of it from things that were left by the previous owners) but for some reason could not ever find the motivation to do it. Taylor had told me about it months ago and I’m glad she did. It was super easy, and we ended getting rid of some cat food which will hopefully go to a better home where it will get used (Jasmine’s a very picky eater you know).
Freecycle is an online community (Eugene’s is pretty big) that helps prevent random stuff from filling up the landfills. How often have you thought “I wish I didn’t have to throw this away, someone could probably use it, but I can’t.” That would be a perfect Freecycle item. It works a lot like a Classified but everything is free. The networks are set up by community, so find the Freecycle in you community.
