I have tried to get rid of stuff for free on Craigslist, and I always have trouble. People think that because you're giving it away, instead of selling it, there must be something wrong with it. Then I discovered Freecycle. It's like Craigslist, but only for things that are free. People get rid of some of the strangest things in the name of recycling.
People get rid of great stuff. Example: "small freezer (mount pleasant) by kpandrew
has a dent in the lid but works fine"
You can also get rid of weird stuff. Like old carpet. Seriously. I just got rid of some old kitchen chairs - all in the name of recycling and re-using. This is the fellow who took my chairs:
Bless his heart.
