This is my online journal documenting my attempted escape from debt hell. If you think that applying the term "hell" to being in debt is too extreme, you've probably never come close to the point of no return.Please feel free to follow me on this escape mission, maybe all of us will learn a thing or two along the way.

Tip for Frugal Living: Freecycle!

Tip for Frugal Living: Freecycle

What's better than getting a great deal at a thrift store or garage sale? Getting it free, of course!

Freecycle is an international organization thatacts locally. It helps keep items that in times past would have been thrown away, out of landfills, and finds people who can make use of them. The catch is that no money is to change hands!

It operates on the Yahoo Groups platform, and all you have to do is join your local group, and if you can live with the rules, which are pretty much that everything must be free, legal and appropriate for all ages.

Not only can you get rid of your own clutter and give it new life in the hands of someone who needs or wants it, or get stuff you need gratis, but it also gives you the opportunity to meet great socially conscious people in your own area!
