Craigslist is a great way to save money and get the things you want without paying for them. Craigslist is popular for buying and selling items you no longer need. But there is also a tab on the site where you can get things for free. Sometimes these items are of little value. But sometimes they are in excellent condition or easily refurbished and just what you need. People often give away furniture, appliances, carpeting, and accessories they have replaced. They just want someone to come and get them out of their way. Other times people give away clothing they no longer wear, the wood they cut from a fallen tree, dishes, and inherited items they do not want. We will explain how to find free stuff on Craigslist and access these items below.

Choosing your area

Craigslist allows you to filter your results by category, keyword, state, and location. By default, your search will be limited to your immediate area, but you can expand your search by clicking on the “fine-tune” button at the top right of the page. You can choose nearby cities or set your page to reflect anything within a specific mile range.

Find the items you want

When you pull up Craigslist, you will see a section in the middle of the page titled “for sale.” You will find a tab in the for sale category that reads “free.” Click on the word for items people want to give away at no charge.

Filter your search

Because free items move fast and posters sometimes forget to remove the post when it is gone, it is a good idea to filter by date. If the item being donated is valuable, it will likely be gone tomorrow. Filter by the date and even check the time the listing was posted. Move fast to contact the owner.

Use the search bar to look for specific items or the entire free section to see everything offered.

Make your selection and contact the owner

Once you have found a listing you are interested in, you can contact the owner by clicking the reply button on the page. The contact method will be displayed. Be polite and ask if the item is still available and ask any questions you may have concerning its condition, age, and weight if it needs to be made apparent.

Be sure you have a way to retrieve the article on your own. Set a time when you will arrive. Most owners will not hold an item, but if you say you are coming at noon, they will typically not tell anyone else to come at the same time. Only show up unannounced if the listing reads that the item is on the curb and you can pick it up.

Before you knock on the doors of anyone offering you a freebie, make sure you follow the game’s rules.

You should carefully read the description of the free item to see if it’s the kind of freebie you’re looking for. Also, note any specific information on the ad. If the ad says the item is a specific brand or year, do not ask for the brand or year. Frustrating an owner is a good way to avoid getting the item. But, asking if the photo provided is current or if the item has any damage is acceptable.

Never give out your personal information. If someone is giving an item away, there is no need for you to provide anything other than an email address or phone number.
