Ahh the wonders of networking and this tool designed to both assist and consume it.
I am quite a fan of the Internet.
Let me introduce you to Freecycle.
“Our mission is to build a worldwide gifting movement that reduces waste, saves precious resources & eases the burden on our landfills while enabling our members to benefit from the strength of a larger community.”
Freecycle is a worldwide operation but with local networks. I joined the closest to me several weeks ago and although haven’t yet put anything up to be given, I have been keeping my eyes out. Yesterday it proved fruitful.
I drove maybe 10 minutes to pick up the folder but payed nothing – saved about $10. It has been used before of course, but it’s still good and will be thoroughly useful.
A wheel snapped off my computer chair last night – perhaps I should look out for one of those… or you know, live with it.
