Where on Earth can you get anything for FREE? Is there really such a place? Yes there is! Craigslist! If you look in the appropriate city for your location then locate the “FOR SALE” area in the center you will find a “FREE” category. In this “FREE” listing area you can find just about anything, as long as it’s legal. You are also allowed to list items that you wish to give away for FREE as long as there are no “wanted” ads, pets, promotional giveaways, or intangible/digital items.”
I found these completely FREE items in a recent search of the “FREE STUFF” section for Craig’s List in Cleveland, Ohio. A FREE Pair of Architectural Columns (it did say that the paint was chipped off and they needed to be repainted – but they are FREE), a FREE Boat for Fishing, a FREE TV made by RCA, a FREE Coffee Table, a FREE Refrigerator, FREE Fill Dirt, FREE Shoes, FREE boxes, a FREE Birthday Banner, FREE Dolls, FREE Manure (Really!), FREE Baby clothes, FREE Enfamil Coupons, a FREE Copier, FREE Dishes and even a FREE Piano! That’s only a partial list and it’s only one page. Really, the sky’s the limit!
Here’s a couple of recommendations when pursuing FREE items on Craigs List:
– Make sure that you speak with the person as opposed to just communicating by email with them. Get a phone number.
– Ask questions FIRST! Does it work? Why are they getting rid of it? How old is it? Where is it located? Why are they giving it away for FREE instead of selling it?
– If you go to look at the item use some common sense, don’t go at night, don’t go alone, make an appointment.
– If you do set an appointment and can’t make it, call the person and let them know.
With a little caution and preparation you can get some great FREE stuff by perusing the FREE things on Craigslist! Happy FREE Hunting!
