Are you a ‘free cycler?
What is that you ask?
Well, it is when you have something you don’t want anymore, there is nothing wrong with it so you want to give it away for free..
At our condo, ..the garbage compacter and the recycle bins are located in the parkade. Now there are more than 520 units so that is a ton of garbage and recycling…and even more ‘free-cycling’!!
We have lived here since 2003 and have participated in the ‘free-cycling’ that goes on..
We have dropped things off in the garbage area that we don’t want anymore and I have obtained a few items, much to the dismay of Doug..
someone else’s trash is a treasure to someone else..
Now today we were downstairs loading up the trailer with all the clean linen and a few other items..and Doug noticed a Breville Cappuccino maker..we already have one that Carlie gave us for Christmas but there was a ‘mate’..exactly the same one..a twin?..why do we need two?
Is it broken?..does it smell?..is it damaged?
Well, needless to say, I grabbed it and brought it upstairs..
this is our new ‘find’..the big silver knob was jammed and the steam spout was clogged..Doug fixed it..a miracle!! it works!
Here is our other one..
..see they are identical..now we have duelling cappuccino makers..
Oh sure I know we are suppose to be ridding ourselves of stuff….but what a find!!
Why do we need two?..well, my dear readers, now we have one that can stay in the trailer..
..that is as long as we are not dry camping???
