Woot! Elliptical Yard Art is GONE!
Holy Mama! has moved to holymama.org, please update your links and feeds.  Thank you!

Ok, i LOVE freecycle.

I hauled the elliptical out to the porch, then listed it on freecycle as SO HARD TO USE I THINK IT'S BROKEN, and would you believe it? 24 people vying for the honor of picking it up.  24!! No, I do not live in a big city. (I live in a crazy city, apparently, where the populace craves broken fitness equipment.)

Who knew so many people wanted a killer hard elliptical?  I had no idea.

You should try it. It's crazy. Freecycle. What do you want hauled off? I'm betting someone will jump at the chance.

(The lady who picked it up just emailed and said that her husband LOVES it, he's training for marathons and he's been using it all night. I'm so glad. It would take that sort of athlete to appreciate the killer-ness of this particular machine.)

I love Freecycle. My sister got a lot of great outdoor Little Tykes stuff for my niece...for free! Stuff that would have cost a couple of hundred dollars to go buy. If I didn't live out in the country, I'd probably use it to get rid of my junk. And who knows, if people are that eager to get broken fitness equipment, maybe they'd be willing to make the drive to come get my junk.

Its very cool. I gave away a bookshelf and dresser a few weeks ago. The only downside was I got a dirt email from someone saying how dare I give it away to someone who lives so far away!WHAT???

Don't you love when someone loves something you are SO happy to part with! Give much and you shall receive much. In this case you have the peace of having one less crazy thing clutter your life. YAY for you! Wish you lived closer though... I could use an eliptical to get my rear in shape!

Reminds me of the time my husband and I left a bunch of free stuff in the front yard when we thought we were moving ... neighbors little kid left his bicycle in our front yard and it got picked up along with it ... felt bad but the kiddos have never left anything in our front yard again! BTW I LOVE elipticals. If I lived closer you'd have 25 people vying for it.

You're blog is too funny! Love it! I live in Seattle...everyone just leaves all their great stuff out in front with a free sign! In the last six months I've gotten a bookcase, a chest of drawers, and some other odds and ends! It's great...like treasure hunting! :)

Hi! I knew we'd become good friends after I first read your blog and then met you in NM...I, too, HATE elliptical machines. LOL!!! I'm so glad you don't have to look at that hideous machine when you drive up to your house. The BBQ was fun! Hope to hear from you soon. :0)
