Free Recycled Stuff

free recycled stuffI’m always shopping at local thrift stores and garage sales for craft supplies and things to recycle into a craft project, but I recently found a way where you can do this online and it’s FREE!

Here’s how it works:
If you have an item you no longer need that is just too nice to put in the trash you can give it away at these free recycling sites.  If you have a garage you are cleaning out, or a bunch of empty coffee cans or jars, or a t.v. you want to give away, all you do is post it on one of these sites so that you can pass it along to someone else instead of tossing it in the trash.
If there is something inparticular you are looking for to finish your craft project such as a stash of fabric or a stash of paper bags you can post an ad and wait for someone to contact you who has what you are looking for and it’s yours for FREE!
I love this idea because not only can I find things for free but I can help someone who may be looking for something I have.  I love the idea of people helping people just because with no strings attached.
Some of these sites also have listing of local thrift stores in your area.
Just remember, these sites are only intended for listings of items you want to give away for free.  If you use one of these sites I would love to hear about it!
Do you know of any other sites like this?  If so, I would love for you to leave a link in the comments.

    I’ve used my local group with success. My favorite thing to gift/get is plants. When I divide perennials I give away the extras & I’ve found a lot of nice plants free this way.

    One word of warning though. Be careful about meeting people at your home. You are dealing with strangers. I always take my husband or adult son with me.

    Thanks for the information! I don’t know of any free sites but I do visit Goodwill and the ReStore often..I love a bargain! I am co-hosting a party with 3 other bloggers called The Project Stash and it is starting tonight at 8:00 pm EST. I’d love for you to stop by and link up your project! There is also a Shabby Apple Giveaway!

    Thanks for sharing! I haven’t used any of these sites, but I’ve known people who have. Also, Craigslist has a “Free” category that works just like these other sites.
