Freecycle Rocks

My local yoga studio, Studio Gaia, has a clothing rack in the entry way which is a "Freecycle" rack. There's a little sign that says "free to a good home" above it. For the past 3 months I've just kind of browsed it and not had any luck. But last month I found this gem:

It works as a yoga top, or I can wear it to work, or even salsa dancing! I also found a gray zipped "yoga" hoodie by Green Apple. Come to think of it, I also found a tie-dyed tank top for yoga. I hit the motherload!  I'm currently taking Yoga Teacher Training for my 200 hr RYT at Studio Gaia. What a transformative experience this has been for me. We attend classes one weekend a month for 10 months. Not only are we learning about yoga asanas, meditations, chakras, we are also learning about nutrition, ayurveda, Thai yoga massage and much more! I hope to eventually be able to offer yoga to kids and young families. In fact, I'm teaching my first yoga class this weekend on a camping trip that several families from our church are attending. So far I have one student! That's OK, it's a start. The journey of a lifetime begins with a single step.

How about you? Do you have any experience with Freecycle at all?
I have donated a few items to the rack. The owner of the studio informed me that at the end of each month the clothing items that are not claimed are taken to a local church. Yay!
It's fast. It's frugal. It's fashion. Have a great week!
