Personally, my favorite way to find free items and to list items for free is through FreeCycle. I’ve signed up for my local group and I’ve gotten several items this way including:
|before - minus tray|
|after - minus tray|
|was given to a friend, baby not included, of course|
|exersaucer, by far Max's favorite toy|
I’ve also gotten pots and plants, (hostas and irises to be specific), a couch, a baby swing, baby gate, bouncy seat, an exterior light, and several other items. I’ve gotten rid of much more than that, it’s a great way to purge and have the items go to someone who can use it!
There’s also a free section of Craigslist. I haven’t had much success finding anything, but I have had good success with posting free items and having quick pickups.
What are your favorite resources for free items? Do you have a giveaway pile? Do you list items or do you bring them to thrift stores?
