Craigslist Freebies: What You Can Get Completely Free in Your Community

Posted on 10/21/2013

Craigslist users post more than 100 million classified ads each month according to While the site is a great place to find cheap furniture or even a job there are also lots of freebies on Craigslist. Tucked under the "for sale" heading, in between "computer" and "furniture" you'll see the word "free." Here's a list of what you can likely get completely free in your community.

From puppies to parakeets are available free to good homes. Pet owners use Craigslist to relocate their furry and feathered friends for lots of different reasons. If you want more unconditional love in your life check out your community's Craigslist freebie page.

Desks, dressers and sofas can all be picked up for free on Craigslist. This is a great opportunity for college students or first-time homeowners looking to furnish a place on the cheap. (Free fake leather couch anyone?) Just beware of any listings for free mattresses. That's one thing you may not want to inherit from a stranger.

Rocks and Bricks
Score free rocks and bricks for your next landscaping project. The heavier it is the more likely it is to be free. Usually if you can haul it away, the owner is glad to give you a bargain.

Big Electronics
With the weight and price of flat screen TVs coming down, many people are unloading their large, heavy TVs for free on Craigslist. These freebies usually still work fine, they're just a bit outdated.

Need fire wood for the winter? Keep warm for free by scouring Craigslist for free wood listings.

Gym Equipment
We spotted several listings for free workout equipment like treadmills, exercise bikes and even a Nautilus ab machine in Pittsburgh. If you want to get in shape by using slightly outdated and dusty gym equipment you can definitely find this stuff for free.

Moving Boxes
Need to pack up your stuff? Whatever you do don't pay for moving boxes. Craigslist is lousy with free listings for these.
