I don’t think I have mentioned Freecycle for over a year but I have kept monitoring the local group and given and received several things.
Last night I got a futon mattress. Jane had been suggesting that the one we use to sleep on was in need of replacement but was a bit shocked when I told her that I was going to pick one up from a Freecycler. Fortunately it was clean and decent and passed my sniff test when I picked it up (although, to be honest, the old one didn’t smell particularly bad too me) and hers when I got it home.
I won’t be Freecycling our old one; that is being reused under the cushions on our sofa, to improve the comfort of another old piece of furniture that many would have sent to the tip years ago.
