Freecycle is a great nonprofit organization that links you with other members of your community to help give and get items for FREE! In order to keep usable items out of landfills. One man's junk may be another may's treasure (isn't that how the old saying goes). I heard about this from my older sister and figured that I would check it out. It is GREAT! I have given away several things that were cluttering my closets (to make room for new things of course...lol) and received some nice things as well. I have gotten crown molding for my kitchen(my kitchen has been in process for quite some time now...moulding is one of the last things I needed YAY!), some cleaning supplies BRAND NEW (how cool) and even an exercise machine!

All you need to do is sign up in your local community, then it takes about a day or so to be approved. Once approved you will receive messages into your inbox daily. All you need to do is reply to the things that interest you. You will receive a message directly if they select you to receive the item. You can list 1 WANT ad per week with 3 items in it. Say you need a TV or couch, you would compose an ad saying "WANTED: TV" then type a short description. You wouldn't believe how many people give away TV's! It's worth checking out!


  1. I just read the other day that people got on free cycle to get coupons from the newspapers! I am going to try it!

    Thank you for checking out my blog and praying for Bergen. Isn't the internet amazing how it connects random folks together for different causes?

  2. Hey try it! I did try once for coupons but no bites...No problem your blog is great it is like nothing I have stumbled upon before...as for Bergen...it is very sad when terrible things happen to little kids it really breaks my heart. I hope that he gets better and all works out for his family. Take care!!
