“I'm loving Yerdle more and more. I've been a member for over a year now. Yerdle has changed my life especially in a time when money was tight. One of the first things I got was an electric breast pump that was basically brand new. I actually got it to gift to my sister, (as a new mom and heading back to work) she really needed it. I was glad to help her cut down on baby expenses. After that amazing experience, Yerdle truly won my heart. I'm glad I have found a great place to trade useful items." - Lilian M., Long Beach, CA
"I'm Kara and I'm 15 years old. I started using Yerdle because my dad just died from cancer and left me nothing. So I started selling stuff in order to get money for college and to make others happy." - Kara S., Pittsford, NY
"I recently responded to a fellow Yerdler's 'In Search Of' post in the Facebook group. When she sent me a private message to coordinate, we discovered that not only are we from the same hometown (even though I live across the country now), but also the same tiny community within that town. Small world.
Thanks, Yerdle, for giving me that connection today!" - Heather B., Lakewood, CO
" I joined Yerdle after my husband was laid off. We have a 3 year old daughter and she needed so many things that we couldn't afford. Finding Yerdle was a huge help because we were able to find clothes and toys for our daughter. Yerdle deserves all the blessings." - Angel R., Marysville, CA
"Yerdle is Awesome. I enjoy people and I enjoy making people happy. I love it when I give things and I get a little note that says I just made their day. I am not looking to try to see if I can get an over abundance of Yerdle dollars. I just want to give to people who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford things. I also had a very nice experience! I ordered a bundle from a lady who kept her items at an affordable price for anyone. She made me the happiest person! I am on disability and can't afford much. For the past 2 winters I haven't had any boots. I just couldn't afford them. I live in Michigan and you never know about the weather. So anyways, I received boots that looked brand new and fit perfectly. Also a beautiful pink purse that included the wallet, and a few different jewelry items that included a watch. Every time I go out I always get compliments on my purse and watch. She only asked a minimum price for these items. Thank you Yerdle! Thank you to that special person she was a sweetheart!" - Barbara D., Belleville, MI
