Freecycle Rocks!

It seems like these days everyone is looking for a way to save a buck. Recently I found a really cool group online called The Freecycle Network, and I thought I’d share it with you blog readers.

Basically it works like this: people who don’t want things anymore are paired with people who do (and vice versa.)

For example: I wanted some tote bags to use while grocery shopping, and I found a woman here in Provo who was giving some away. I have a really nice brown wool peacoat that’s too big for me, and I saw a woman looking for a winter coat and offered it to her.

And if you’re thinking, “Oh they’d never have the kind of thing I need,” I’ve seen people giving away washers and dryers, televisions, children’s Halloween costumes, even used MP3 players!

So if you’re looking for a fun way to save cash and the environment at the same time, check out your local Freecycle Network! It’s like a garage sale where everything is free!!!!!!!!!!
