Intentional Living Feng Shui Bagua(pdf)
As you are getting rid of your clutter, Freecycle is a fantastic way to pass your stuff on. Goodwill, Salvation Army, etc. are great places as well, but sometimes you have things you don’t want to just drop off somewhere.
I have had such a positive experience with Freecycle. You find which geographical area makes sense for you, and then post your item. For example: OFFER- Drafting Table- Studio City. People respond if they are interested. You get to decide who gets it. It is always for free and there is no tax write off, but you know that your items are going to go and have a new life.
My experience has been that everyone is so appreciative. I have nothing but great things to say about this service. People have come to my home to pick the items up, I have never had a problem and everyone has been polite, respectful and grateful. Again, this is my personal experience with this.
