If you live in Madison, be sure to join this new Facebook group if you haven't already! More than 800 neighbors have already joined this Madison-only group, where you can get and give free stuff that's no longer needed — such as outgrown clothing, books, games and toys, sports equipment, school supplies and home furnishings — and request to borrow infrequently-used items, such as tools.

It's an easy way to prevent useful items from going to the landfill, and a happiness-inducing way to connect with neighbors and help others in our community while decluttering our own spaces.
