Can't you join both groups, KIMMMMYG? I'm a member of two - one to the West of me and one to the North. I also might need to join one that is close to my Mom's coz she's too scared to do it for herself - but I haven't tried that yet.

My only frustration with Freecycle is how picky the people who want something can be. I've responded several times to Wanted pleas only to be told that it wasn't quite what they meant. Why didn't they be more specific in the first place then? I've stopped responding to Wanteds now.

I've used freecycle a lot to get rid of stuff both for myself and school but also to obtain games and things for my classroom's wet play cupboard.

I check every now and again but it's a love/hate. If I don't get the emails I forget to check, when I do get the emails I get too many emails and it's a bit over kill, I can't seem to find a middle ground.

I got rid of my old cd/stereo unit on there no hassle, I dropped it off myself as it was a route I travel and they were happy to be awake at 6am in the morning :p

I keep checking every now and again for a bike but I always miss them :(

I quit because there were just too many emails to trawl through. Drove me nuts!

Yer, some times there can be people who take the p 1 ss a bit, but mostly I find them ok.

It depends what I need or what I have to give away, I do still give things to a local charity shop too.

If you want to be a flower, be one that faces the sun.

If a bird inspires you, then by all means be a white dove.

If you want to be a rock, then try to be a precious stone.

But if you want to be a real human being, Then you must become a revolutionary.

tried them a few weeks ago when we had a vgc single bed with nearly new mattress, plus storage, all duvets sheets and single bedding. I rang them and e mailed them, no-one got back to me even though I rang twice, so in the end the bed man took it away when he bought our new double and all the bedding has gone to Save The Children

good idea, just not all as good as others
