“The Cabbage saves the World”

published 26/05/2006

No Earth money involved

It saves the Earth

The bravest moment of my life! This was my first meeting. I was nervous, what would they make of me? As I sat in my chair in awe and wonderment of those revealing themselves in front of me, my throat dried, my palms moistened and a cold, cold sweat broke out on my forehead. I would soon have to...

“MY JUNK IS YOUR TREASURE”

published 12/12/2005

Get absolutely anything for free.

Get in there quick, it's first come first serve.

About Freecycle ************************ If you ever enjoy visiting Ebay to convert someone's junk into a treasure of your own then you may find Freecycle.org very useful to you. The obvious difference with freecycle is that items are posted and offered for free. So if someone has an old washing...

Variable quality but then it is free.

Six months ago I discovered my Internet version of Shangri-La. That place is freecycle. Freecycle is such a simple concept. If you have stuff you no longer need, you give it away to those who have need of it. Freecycle's rather grandiose claim of, "changing the world one gift at a time" is a bold...

none really

I had been hearing people talk about freecycle for quite a while but it's only recently that I have used it and really understood how it works. We had our lounge done up recently and needed to get rid of a few large pieces of furniture which quite frankly were not in any condition to actually...

Poor website, wasted hours waiting in for no-shows...

I was clearing out the house and loft recently, and rather than simply binning all the old stuff, I decided to give Freecycle a try. The principle behind Freecycle is that you list your unwanted goods, then someone will collect them. Or you see what's on offer then collect people's goods...

You wont get any money for your items.

After such success with this website over the last 2 days I felt compelled to review it. Having sold our family home but with all of us already owning furniture in our new homes, we had planned to sell much of the furniture from the family home. But then laziness took hold, time passed an all of...

FREECYCLE My wife and I have used the Freecycle service quite a bit over the last year. When we moved from a flat that had fridge, freezer, washer etc into a house that didn’t, and not having a money tree in the garden we were very worried about the financial aspect. My brother suggested that I...

Free up some space in the house

Too many wanted ads

Freecycle is a great way of getting rid of unwanted items that can be reused rather than being sent to the tip. A friend told me about freecycle last year as I was complaining about the amount of toys that were cluttering the bedroom and that were no good as my son had outgrown them. www...

I really did happen to come across this site by pure chance. And it was all down to two lonely but in full working condition watches. If you look at the back there is usually a logo of a bin with a line crossed through it. Naturally I'm assuming that you can't just fling them in the bin and hope...

“Don't trash the treasures”

You have to be quick

I've been a member of my local freecycle group for a few months now. I joined on recommendation of a friend who discovered it while looking for free stuff on the web. I know I've told LOTS of people about it and recommended it to them all but before this I hadn't even heard about it. I think it's...

I must have the emptiest dustbin in my road...and its getting emptier by the week as I find more and more ways of recycling the numerous items I can no longer find use for and can find no possible excuse for keeping another day.
