Give away your stuff–get something you need
Austin Freecycle is a great concept–“one person’s trash is another’s treasure.” Instead of throwing away unwanted items–offer them free to the other 6653 Austinites who are members. When you need something–anything–just ask the group. I’ve seen everything from sailboats to half cans of cake frosting offered for free–and someone actually claimed the frosting–eek. Anyway–check the site out–and clean out that closet.
