Freecycling: the futon

I've had a queen-sized futon since the early 90s and it's moved with me across ten houses in that time (Richmond - Abbotsford - Armadale - Richmond - Richmond - Richmond - Braddon - Ainslie - Campbell - Braddon - Turner). There's a bit of history in that bed but now that the PC and I have upgraded it's time to move on. (The futon mattress itself was replaced about a year ago)

Rather than sell it, I stuck it up on Freecycle - a nifty online community/service/whatever that brings together people looking for things and those looking to give them away.

This is their blurb:

The worldwide (!) Freecycle(TM) Network is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Each local group is run by a local volunteer moderator (them's good people). Membership is free.

You can check out the website regularly or have updates forwarded to you directly when they are posted - either individually or in digest format.

They generally look something like this:

Anyways, long story short, after two days, it's gone. Someone who needed a bed now has one and I've been able to de-clutter a little.

Well worth checking out.
