Housecleaning and Freecycle

Major housecleaning today. More like decluttering. I amaze myself on the crap I keep and how I've tucked it out of sight for so long. I have a stack of flattened cardboard 2' high ready to be recycled. Got 2 large trash bags of pure crap. Got another large box set aside for recycling of computer components (yes, it's time to get rid of 14.4kbps modem). I have more space, but I still a lot of organizing left to do.

I am getting rid of more useful stuff thanks to Freecycle. Already had some people come take away my old snowboard boots, VCR and several others scheduled for tomorrow to take away an old keyboard, snowboard helmet, old luggage, etc. I plan on getting rid of some more stuff too, but later this week after things settle down a bit. I've still got that old filing cabinet that just needs to go.

I've regained a tad more real estate of my office. Wait! I've got carpet in here?

Thanks. I wasn't familiar with freecycle. I'll give it a try as well since it seems I've acculated WAAAY too much clutter-y crap in the past two years or so.

I'll have to give that service a go some time. There are some things in my apartment I want to ditch as well, but didn't have a good way of doing so. I'm usually too lazy to even try posting on Craigslist and hate throwing perfectly good stuff away.

The nice thing about living here, however, is usually if I put something on the sidewalk, it will vanish quickly. Yay, college kids.

One of the main goals of Freecycle is to keep decent stuff out of the landfill that someone else can use. This stuff is simply not worth selling on eBay that I'm giving away.

Once you're setup the traffic can be busy. So, setup a filter to tuck the messages away, or just read it on Yahoo's web site.
