If you are a Freecycle /FullCircles / ReUseIt member "shopping" for something in a densely populated metropolitan area, Grouply is for you.
With Grouply, I'm able to easily monitor and search 21 different Freecycle/Gifting groups in the Ottawa/Eastern Ontario area of Canada, a metropolitan area with a population of 1 million.
This morning, a user on one group was looking for a blender. With a few keystrokes, I was able to search for "offer blender" across 19 of the 223 Yahoo!groups I'm a member of. Grouply returned the following:
3 blenders on 3 different groups. But, of course, you MUST be a member of all of the groups in order to use the power of Grouply to search them all simultaneously. It just takes a few minutes to do this, and it could save you having to go out and purchase a new appliance.
Pretty cool, huh?
PS: I use this power to watch for major appliance for the local Canadian Red Cross chapter.
