[Update May 2006: This group has been renamed DeKalb Share and can be found here.]
I just discovered a great resource on Yahoo! Groups called DeKalbFreecycle. Instead of throwing out your old furniture, computers, toys, etc. advertise them at Freecycle. Over the past few days, people have offered up kids’ clothing, electronics, appliances, even a tabletop Zen garden & 2 tickets to last Wednesday’s Huskies game (offered that a.m.)!
There are 3 rules: 1) Everything must be offered for FREE; 2) No pets; 3) Subject headings have to follow a certain format to be posted so be sure to read the “Welcome” e-mail about that before you try to post.
Go to www.yahoo.com, choose Groups, then put DeKalbFreecycle in the Search line. Check out the messages & if this sounds like the group for you, signup is very easy.
