Wednesday Budget Tip -

If you're looking to get rid of some things or need to find something, consider joining a local Freecycle group before turning to eBay or garage sales. Joining the group closest to you through their Yahoo group is free.

Once you have located the group using the main Freecycle site, follow the instructions to join their Yahoo group. Then you'll have access to those things that members are offering and will be able to offer your own unneeded or unwanted items yourself.

The purpose behind Freecycle is to reuse things, keeping them out of landfills. It's a great opportunity to clean out your own unused stuff and possibly find things you need, all for free, and help the environment at the same time.
