Wanted, Offered, and Taken – FreeCycle Gems

What to do with all that stuff you don’t want anymore… there’s a better option than the landfill.

FreeCycle! Join a community of bargain and green-minded folks on the Freecycle Network!

There are loads of these regional eGroups on Yahoo and the principal is simple- post an OFFER (or a WANTED) and someone will respond. We are hooked on the daily digest emails, and in talking with some of our friends, we’ve found we’re not alone. Wading through the mundane giveaways will treat you – usually at least once a day – to some of the funniest, weirdest, or most poignant free ads out there.

Neil recently started a blog showcasing the best of these posts and invites anyone to submit gems from their regional FreeCycle. You’ll find the cream of the crop at FreeCycleGems.wordpress.com. Visit the “About FreeCycle Gems” page to find out how you can  submit the priceless posts from your area.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to decide if I want some vampire blood with a butter dish, 35 ‘real’ magazines with pages missing, or a (very) broken cd player that can’t pick up a radio signal. Oh! the options!

  1. Wow, if I didn’t already have enough of my own, that towel with the holes in it would be a real temptation!

  2. Never mind the options – what’s happening about those onions? (approx no. 20, unwanted due to pregnancy).

    Hey, dp – there’s always room at Blunt Mansions for another widget or two…

  3. – all I do is give them away and they just seem to keep growing. Like bleedin’ tribbles! Anyways Ms Dixon – I expect you’ll be wanting a ‘blog of the day’ widget now for your fuelmyblog achievement – congrats…

  4. @Bill Blunt: I’m liking the recent post about rocks… πŸ˜€

    Shame I don’t like onions much, as the ones you point to “still look edible!” hee hee

  5. Nice blog. I just browsed down through a few of your posts. Funny stuff. Hope your feet and ankles are better. (Hee hee)

    If for any reason you stop by my blog … and of course if I were you I’d certainly have better things to do with my time! (smile) … make sure you check out my Dictiowary, Time-Sucks and Yakety-Yaks. Think you might like them.

    I’m also thinking you might be fun to collaborate with occasionally on a Take Two (also in the sidebar). Just a thought. We could arm wrestle for the topic. I think I can take you.

    Have a great day.

  6. Welcome bobbarama! Yes, my feet are much better now. Thank you!

    I’m off to have a look around your blog. πŸ™‚
    Cheers!
