Have something lying around the house that you don’t need anymore, but you’d hate to see thrown away? Donate it to your local Freecycle Group. According to their website, The Freecycle Network has the following mission statement:

“Our mission is to build a worldwide gifting movement that reduces waste, saves precious resources & eases the burden on our landfills while enabling our members to benefit from the strength of a larger community.

It basically looks like Craigslist, just strictly for free items. Once you join your local Freecycle group, you can post your free stuff and/or offer to unload other people’s crap free stuff. Interesting concept. I wonder why I am only hearing about this now?

Ironically, I found out about Freecycle on my IBS board, which is one of the few forums that I frequent that has absolutely nothing to do with saving money, pinching pennies, or acquiring freebies.

I just requested permission to join the Ahwatukee group. Currently 500 members and counting. We’ll see if I can pick up anything useful. I can’t believe it, Cottonwood and Camp Verde each have their own thriving groups, with 278 and 223 members, respectively!
