Something for Nothing - Freebies in Brooklyn
For those of us with accumulated clutter, or those who need a little more in their lives, there are two great resources:
To check out what's free in Sunset Park, try clicking this link for Brooklyn FreeCycle @ Yahoo Groups. Of course, this is a Brooklyn-wide service; I just keep a link for Sunset Park offers, for obvious reasons. However, if the offer is good enough, I'll certainly consider traveling a little. I also gave away a bunch of stuff when we moved into our apartment: used cowboy boots, hanging closet organizers, hangers, moving boxes, etc.
Also, Craig's List has free listings where you can search exclusively for freebies in your neighborhood. Click here for for Sunset Park freebies.
I also just got an email alerting me to a Free Cycle Swap Meet. The details are as follows:
