Website Profile: Freecycle.org

May 4th, 2007  |  Published in Frugal Living, Website Profile

Welcome to Above Yourself, a blog about self-improvement and faith. If you're new here, you may want to subscribe in a reader or subscribe by email. Many of the topics here are related to my faith in Jesus Christ and Mormonism, but all are welcome to share their own beliefs. Thanks for visiting!

In chatting with her friends, my wife recently discovered Freecycling at Freecycle.org. It’s a great concept, and especially useful for people at our stage in life when we’re about to move into a slightly larger place. Basically, you join a mailing list through the site and the people on that mailing list share the items with others who may need them before getting rid of them. In the few days since we’ve joined, we’ve seen messages every day for different things, and we’ve even received a nice, comfy couch for our new place!

Share and Share Alike

We occasionally accumulate our own “stuff” that we can’t always use, so it’s great to have a resource like this that we can go to share what we have as a community, which helps us all keep down the clutter in our lives. Freecycle.org has a large community, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that our small town not only has a list of its own, but a few hundred people subscribed are subscribed to the list.
