Amazed by Freecycle...

I enjoy Freecycle. It's kinda like what you pick up and read in the dentist's office. It appears in digest format, sorted into a folder in my email "in box". If I don't read a bunch of them, I just delete them. And what a great way to get rid of things I don't want that are still useable and might not get accepted by a GoodWill donation center. While waiting for a document to print, I read through a few of them.

A couple of entries made me giggle so hard. People think others WANT this stuff?? These. Are. Actual entries...

*brand name deleted* coffeemaker
Works great except the water tank leaks.

Baby clothes, used. Most have stains. Sizes newborn to 6 months.


Really folks, it is OK to throw things away!!

I love freecycle- I'm going to collect a leather jacket tomorrow- but I am also dismayed by the ammount of broken stuff that is advertised. Why people, why????

That is so funny but so true.

Sometimes I think....if YOU did not want the trash you are getting rid of why would I?
