Its Like Recycling but with less hassle!

For this Works for me Wednesday, I will share one of my favorite guilty pleasures -- Freecycle. It is the best thing. If you have something you don't want anymore but could be used by someone else - don't haul it all the way to Goodwill or put it out for the trash - freecycle it! The way it works is - you sign up for your local freecycle listserve. Then people post stuff, and if you want it, you email them back. If you want to get rid of stuff, you post it, and they come to your house and get it! I've gotten some of the best stuff - a train table just before Christmas one year, a rooftop car carrier, lots of scrapbooking supplies, etc. I've also gotten rid of stuff quickly - baby stuff goes fast, but so do old air conditioners and left over corian countertops! You can even post "wanted" ads for something you are looking for.
That's what works for me! For more great ideas go to Rocks in My Dryer.
