The New York Times Magazine had an article about Freecycle today, entitled Unconsumption.
I've long been a Freecycle user and fan - and the article even mentioned our Coastside Freecycle community, which I help moderate. I've used it to dispose of items that need just the right owner (a clock shaped like an airplane, a Pin the Fig Leaf on David game, etc.) and I've also picked up some items (such as old copies of Real Simple, and used file folders). Highly recommended! There are Freecycle communities throughout the USA as well as some in other countries; consider giving your local one a try.
