Best Freebie

Being a single and umployed mother I got baby clothes, socks, toys, books, bedding and car seats for my baby before and after he was born. It was a blessing.

I got a nice big inflatable raft. I live on a lake so I thought that was pretty cool. Also picked up a vintage electric typewriter as birthday present for a friend. I was a hit with that one.

My best freebie from Freecycle

That would have to be my second dog! He was a shelter rescue and his owner couldn't keep him and needed to find him a good home. His personality sounded very similar to the dog I already had so I thought they would be great company for each other. 6 years alter they are still like brothers!

Free Gravel and a Free Vacuum Cleaner

I've been a member of Louisville FC for a long time and have gotten a lot, and given a lot too! My best would have to be a bunch of gravel that i got for free as well as a perfect vacuum cleaner.

Love to give and receive

I have received a cool yellow nightstand and a small computer desk for my teen daughter's room. I also received a television; DVD/VCR combo. I have given away kids books, coat, shoes, and toys.

Best TV Ever!

I picked up a 52" big-screen HDTV from a wonderful lady who had just bought a new one. That was a year ago or more and it's still working like new! I got it for my Mom and Dad who have a hard time seeing regular sized TV and my Mom has been dreaming of a big screen TV but thought she'd never get one. She was as excited as a little girl at Christmas and she's 80 years old! It was awesome!

Best Freebie on Freecycle

The best thing I have gotten free on Freecycle is a dog...we got a male Boston Terrier 4 yrs ago at the end of May and he is still with us and SO very loved. I had just joined Freecycle when he popped up and we drove 65 miles each way to bring him to his forever home. So sometimes the best free things are just priceless! Thanks for letting me share my best Freecycle freebie!

2 Sets of Kitchen Cabinets!

I was able to get 2 full sets of kitchen cabinets on Freecycle. We saved 1 set for our garage and our neighbor who was trying to sell her house was gifted an amazing set of cabinets we got for her.

Big Screen TV

I was blessed to receive a big screen TV with awesome stereo speakers for my elderly parents. They LOVE it! Mom said she had only dreamed of ever having a big screen and this was more than she could have ever hoped for. It's black, 52" and the whole tv and speakers is on wheels for easy moving!

Free couch

It is the kind with 2 end recliners and a table in the middle. I LOVE it
—Guest Pat

Free Outdoor Bar Set

I picked up an entire outdoor bar set up for my deck from Freecycle. It included a 1/2 circle bar w/ shelves, 8 bar chairs, and two side tables. The woman that had it had also gotten it from Freecycle, but it was too large for her deck area, so she was passing it on. It was a huge hit a graduation party that I held a few weeks ago. I bragged about how/where I got it and I believe Freecycle has a few new fans!
