Freecycle

I have been a member of a local Freecycle group for several years and I've had a chance to give away many things that normally would have either been trashed or dumped at Goodwill. For those of you who are not familiar with Freecycle, here is a blurb from their website:

"The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,552 groups with 5,485,000 members across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& 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 a local volunteer (them's good people). Membership is free."

To find a group near you, the website is: http://www.freecycle.org/

Freecycle is a great program! I really love craigslist...have you ever used it?

Just wanted to see if you tried the brownies-I am thinking I will be making some more tonight!

I did make the brownies last night and my hubby and princess gobbled them up!

I am a member of our local free cycle group and I love it. I get emails hourly and since I'm about to furnish a camp for rent, this is a very helpful community!

Thanks for coming by my blog today and I answered your question there about peeling the figs!
