Spring Cleaning and Freecycle
Lately I have been doing some spring clutter clean out. I don’t know how it happens, but try as I may to keep the “stuff” out of my house I still find I have it to purge. Mostly it is things like outgrown clothing and books that we no longer need and toys, games, a few small household items, etc. I typically take anything in good condition to my nearest Good Will drop site. I am not into garage sales because I don’t like the hassle of them.
Well I had a large item that needed a new home and I did not want the hassle of selling it for most likely not enough money to make the whole process worth it. I decided to try Freecycle. I have been a member of my local Freecycle Yahoo Group for sometime but never have used them. This morning I put my item on Freecycle and then went about doing some more cleaning and purging. In about one hour I had 5 responses! Hopefully one of them will work out and my desire would be to see this item gone before the weekend is out! What a great feeling to give my “stuff” that just sits and collects dust to someone who can use it. AND I don’t even have to go anywhere to deliver.. they come and pick the “stuff” up.
So if you are currently doing any spring cleaning then you might want to check out Yahoo Groups and see if there is a freecycle for your area and “free” yourself of items that could use a new home!!
