I answered it with "I'd like to help reduce waste in the local dump". And that was it.
Thanks Jones - here's what I put in:
Hello, my name is Jenn. My husband and I own a house in [city]. We have no kids and 1 dog. I would like to join FC because it looks interesting and I'd like to reduce waste in the local dump.
It is exactly 200 characters...heres hoping they let me in.
Edit - okay that questionaire was the easy part - the hard part is in order to be accepted I have to post a offer within 48 hours. I don't have anything to give away at the moment...oh well...guess I won't be joining Freecycle.
