Nothing beats the economic blues like free stuff.
So many, including myself, are turning to Freecycle, a network of communities dedicated to giving and getting things — furniture, toys, clothes, etc. — all for free.
It’s another feel-good online destination to help you save money and reduce clutter.
Freecycle, its website touts, is about “keeping things out of the landfill, sharing an item that retains usefulness, clearing out unused clutter and community.”
It is not a charity, a “lending closet, a free-for-all, a means to get as much free stuff as you can, a way to get more stuff to sell or auction” or “a way (to stop) from taking your broken items to the dump if that’s where they belong.”
The ground rules are straightforward. Everything has to be free, legal and appropriate for all ages.
