If you like free stuff and you live in Brooklyn, you need to run over to the Freecycle FreeMeet happening today in Park Slope. From 11 to 4 today, September 13, Freecycle of New York City is hosting its Back-to-School FreeMeet. It's like one big garage sale, but everything is absolutely free.
Here's how it works: you bring whatever items you no longer want but are still usable and in return you get to scavenge through other people's items and take whatever you want. Actually, you don't even have to bring anything of your own. Since we recently moved to New York and didn't bring much, I didn't have much to give away. I only brought one hat. However, I found 3 great books to bring back home!
I went early in the day, so I am sure that people will bring more stuff as the day goes on. However, there was already a good amount of books, clothes, movies, picture frames, toys, and other household items. You should definitely go check it out! Whatever is not taken at the end of the day will be donated or recycled.
FreeCycle has groups all across the nation and a group near you might be holding a FreeMeet sometime soon. For information on a FreeCycle group near you click here.
