The other day, I saw a post on a Freecycle Facebook where someone was giving away hockey cards. By some miracle, I was the first to chime in and the next day, they were in my possession. If you are unfamiliar with Freecycle, I suggest checking them out. The whole point of Freecycle groups is to keep items that may be useful to others out of the landfill; it is not a site where people can get a free item and then turn around and sell it. Actually my local group filters that out pretty good because those people are so obvious as they say that they are interested in every item posted. If you are one of those people who don’t know what to do with your base cards, a Freecycle group would be a good way to find a better home for them.
For those of you that follow me on Twitter, I posted the finds on there. If you don’t follow, look for a post tomorrow giving you a reason to. Here is the recap of the Freecycle cards, some other sports sneaked in:
