I have used freecycle.
It think its both good and bad. Many of the times I don't get all the emails, so I will see a pending pick up one but never saw the original post.
The only time I've had a really bad experience was when I first started using it. I was looking for a glider rocker for when Jacob was born. Had someone tell me that they had one I could have. I lined up to have my parents help me get it and everything. Exchanged about 3 or 4 emails with this person and right when I was going to get their address, never heard from them again.
One of the best things we got was the computer desk that I am using now. Its really nice and works great for us now.
I did get some formula on it. The sample kinds that come in the mail. Those are easy to see if they have been tampered with because of the kind of seal on them.
We've given a lot more things on it than gotten.
thanks to magicalluv for the GREAT siggy!!
