Freecycle at is a website you can sign up for. It is a place if people have items they want to give away or people can request items they are in need of. Everything is free, but it is a way to keep things out of the landfill.

Welcome! The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,718 groups with 6,577,000 members across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by entering it into the search box above or by clicking on “Browse Groups” above the search box. Have fun!

I had signed up with freecycle about a year ago. Usually things go quickly after listing or things I figure others need more than I do. A few days after I booked my cruise I checked my email and there was a listing for a few formal dresses that were just listed. I emailed about one of them and it was still available. She wasn't even sure what size it was but it was close to what I would wear so she said if it didn't work to freecycle it again. When I got it, it fit perfectly. The only cost was to dryclean it.
