I love freecycle. I love that when our tree broke on the take down last year that I just kept an eye on freecycle for a nice and well. . .free one. The owner decided they were not going to celebrate Christmas anymore which is sad but that means we have a perfectly good tree. We really appreciated the ease of a prelit tree and were shocked on the brightness but we soon got over it. On a side note, I love not caring how my family puts the ornaments on. They are on and we are happy.
