I AM an advocate of LETS and Freecycle and have used both. Up until recently I was a member of my regional Local Exchange (sometime Energy) Trading System, or LETS, and have been lucky enough to score a Gocco printing kit and plenty of supplies through Freecycle. What brought me to mention them, however, was not a LETS or Freecycle moment, it was finding all these gumnuts on the footpath. I quite literally stepped from the car to visit my eldest stepdaughter last week to find several sprays of gumnuts on the grass verge at the bottom of her neighbour’s driveway. As they’d been discarded I swept them up and brought them home. They make me smile. And cost nothing. The universe does provide (but I’m not telling that to an investment banker at the moment).
