Freecycle- San Diego

I am always looking for creative ways to down-size and re-purpose stuff.  Always better to do that instead of tossing stuff in the dumpster whenever possible.  I was really excited when I found The Freecycle Network!

The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,981 groups with 8,732,531 members around the world. It’s a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It’s all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by local volunteers.

Membership is free, and everything posted on the network must be FREE, legal and appropriate for all ages. To view the items being given away or sought in San Diego (the town I live in for example), you must be a member of the local group. To view the local group posts, visit the Yahoo Group where they are located.

If you are already a member, use the “Post” tab to make your post to the local group.

I was not a member of this group and just signed up tonite and am currently waiting for “approval” to join.  A few seconds ago I responded to an email from the group moderator asking which neighborhood/area I resided in.

I’m excited to use this site as I continue to down-size my life.  Will keep you all posted how this works out.   By the way– has anyone out there used The Freecycle Network?  San Diego?  Anywhere else?  Comments welcome!
