freecycle is by no means anything new. but some folks are not familiar with it. basically it works like this: are you looking for something very specific? post an ad. do you have something in your garage/basement/closet that needs a new home? post an ad. it’s that simple. what’s even better is you can put what you have to offer out on your porch with the new owners name on it for them to pick up. you don’t have to wait around. you don’t have to answer your door. same goes for when you want something. just ask for porch pickup and it’s yours.
and it’s all free.
