Ok I haven't tried this but it sounds like a very cool idea. I'm definately a fan of donating to Goodwill, etc but this looks like another option to doing that. Plus you can "shop" for yourself. I read about this in Body and Soul magazine. Here's the deal:
The Freecycle Network is a group of email listservs that have popped up in cities and towns around the world. It's designed to keep unwanted items out of landfills and pass them along to others who need them. Love that, 2 great reasons to do it. Try it out, I'm curious to see what you think. Has anyone had success with this?
Have a great weekend!
