Free Stuff

Craigslist is a website that provides classifieds for jobs, accommodation, services, goods, local community and more. Through the Craigslist Free Stuff section you can find freebies from anybody in your area, including swings, furniture, hints and tips on where to get free things, and much more!

  • Free stuff section
  • Simple lay out
  • Search options to select items by location, price, or picture
  • Tips and hints on where to find free things in London

Site Pros

  • Easy to use layout, even if the site is a little ugly
  • Every item laid out in a column, for easy browsing
  • Free items cuts out fear of scammers- nothing to steal if it’s all free
  • Good search options– ability to choose by price, location, and whether the item has a picture or not
  • Nice search option through a map

Site Cons

  • Some spam articles which aren’t selling anything
  • Many items are in poor or damaged condition– though this is to be expected when they’re free
  • Not a huge range of free items to choose from, with many listings being months old

Other Tips

  • You can choose to list all items as thumbnails, a gallery, or even on a map, so you can see what’s closest to you
  • It’s best not to click on any links given by posters- these are usually spam, and could be viruses trying to target you

Overview

While Craigslist Free Stuff does have a very limited range, and is pretty ugly to look at for any period of time, it’s definitely worth checking it out once in a while to see if there’s anything on there that takes your fancy- you never know if that thing you’ve been saving up for for months might just turn up for free!
