Local Resources

For those of you who are in the local area, and by that I mean the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, I wanted to pass along some information about resources to you.

First, (this is not limited to the U.P.), Freecycle! I cannot tell you how many things I have received and passed along through Marquette Freecycle.  The whole purpose of this international group is to prevent items from going to the landfill by posting items to give away. You can post something you would like to pass along OR you can post something you are looking for. This is a GREAT way to upcycle!

Second, Yooper Yardsale. This is a lot like freecycle in that it is run through a yahoo group BUT items through this listing are typically for sale. You can post items you are selling OR buy things through this group. Again, I have found so many GREAT items through this group!

A similar group exists on Facebook for buying and selling: Yooper Rummage Sales.

So, the next time you have something to get rid of or you need, hop on over and check these groups/sites out!
