BEWARE: What follows is a blatant advertisement for Freecycle.
Need moving boxes? You could always impose on a good friend to bring you carloads full of paper boxes from the office. (Thank you, o' kind one.) Or you could check Freecycle.
Need to get rid of all those moving boxes after you’ve got them unpacked? Simple. Post them to Freecycle. Next thing you know, you’re getting offers from people who are eager to come take them away. No trips to the cardboard recycling place for you!
When you want to find a new home for something, just send an e-mail offering it to members of your local Freecycle group. When you're looking to acquire something for yourself, just respond to a member's offer, and you might get it.
We've used freecycle about 10 times through the years and have had terrific experiences. It's a good thing.
Freecycle is changing the world one gift at a time.
Yours in freecycling,
