I’ve mentioned Freecycle on here before, but I haven’t mentioned it in a while. It really is a great website that tries to match up unwanted items with people who want them. It keeps stuff from getting thrown away and it’s great for getting rid of clutter.
I’ve given away broken items that other people wanted because they had the skills to repair them. I’ve also given away various other odds ‘n ends from around the house. In fact, I gave away three bags full of stuff just the other day to a non-profit agency that replied to my email.
You can’t make any money, because the premise of Freecycle is that everything is free. What you can get is a sincere thank you from the person you giving something to. That can be much nicer than getting a few dollars for something.
If you are looking for a way to find free items or if you want to give things away for free, Freecycle is an awesome site to check out. From the main site, you can drill down to find a Freecycle group where you live.
