do I need to look on craigslist to find a freecycle? [day 165]

I love the concept of freecycle.org, however, I have the worst luck actually getting anything.  I’ve responded to emails the second they hit my inbox, and the stuff seems to be gone.  It’s like calling into a radio station to be the 63rd caller.  Do they even do that anymore?

I love craigslist, almost everything in my house came from there.  I love eBay too, as I used to be a power seller (and shopper) and I’ve done over 5,000 transactions on there.

I do love the concept of freecycle, but I’m not a fan of it being a Yahoo group.  I can use it, but it’s not a user-friendly site.  I missed many things on there, trying desperately to be the first responder, things like A/C filters, canning jars, art supplies and even a hot tub.  I knew the hot tub would go quick.

I’ll keep trying freecycle, because I believe in what you’re doing, keeping stuff out of landfills.  Other people’s trash is definitely my treasure.

    You can POST a “WANTED” item on Freecycle…I haven’t done it, but now I am thinking about it.

    hmm…..
