with the tough economic times we are all facing getting stuff for free is as good as making extra money.I joined my local yahoo freecycle group and I have given away and received some nice things. I've given away magazines , children s items, and old clothes. I've received cleaning products and a video camera. What's the best material item you ever got for free/

I actually haven't used it in a while. I totally forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me.

Freecycle helped me with my surprise, I mean last baby. Since he was a boy and the two above are girls, I returned the favor by freecyling the girls stuff.

I am using it weekly. I have not needed much but have given away alot, as I am clearing out my house for a renovation. I did get wheelchair for my Mom for when we travel as she uses a can and walks slow. My mother in law said to just bring stuff to the church, but I feel this is more direct and I know the perosn who gets the items really need or want them.

well the best thing i can think of that i have gotten for free was a $100 Zellers giftcard. I was in shopping late one night (they had a 24 hour day) with my brothers, boyfriend and cousin, and We all signed up to win a prize. There were probably about 12 people in the store, and I won. Since I was with 4 other people, we all split it $20 each. I haven't heard of the free cycle before...sounds cool. I think I will check it out.
