  •  Word of caution (8+ / 0-)

    I am a big fan of Freecycle. I have given a lot of things over the  years.

    Recently one of our members pointed out a problem she had. She put things on the porch to be picked up because she said she wouldn't be home to open the garage.

    Well, the person also helped themselves to her computers and electronics because they knew no one was home.

    Never say that you won't be home. Just say they you are busy and prefer not to answer the door. Also, I mention that my dog will be a problem if I answer the door (which is true). I also mention that my husband or son don't like to answer the door (both true) so that they can just pick
    up the stuff without knocking.

    I have never had a bad encounter. Most people are kind and grateful.
