Craigslist and Freecycle are two great websites for people on a budget or with zero spending money to find some great stuff. As a new homeowner with a limited budget these sites have offered some great bargains as well as ideas. It is a great way to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Craigslist offers a plethora of different areas on which to find things, from vacation rentals and cars to household items or when a local garage sale is happening. It is a great and useful website to use when looking for something in particular or if you just want to look around.
Freecycle believes that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Freecycle allows you to post anything you may want or need to get rid of, from a hand me down bed frame to flagstone you ripped up off your front lawn. If you don’t want it but think someone else might need it post it on this website. You can also go on and post a want-ad for things that you are looking for in hopes someone is getting rid of it.
