Craigslist [Worldwide]

Oh, Craigslist – the cornucopia of stuff. Really, you can find anything on Craigslist 5 Other Sites Like Craiglist To Buy & Sell Used Stuff 5 Other Sites Like Craiglist To Buy & Sell Used Stuff Craiglist is an interesting part of the Internet's legacy. Founded over 15 years ago, the site has steadfastly refused to change its minimalist design and easy-to-use posting system. Though perhaps no longer as popular as... Read More , right? (Granted, based on my experience, you can find a few crazies too, so be careful while browsing or posting).

On the free section of the site, you can find that there are people who are giving everything from desks to chairs to beds away. However, I would pay attention to “curb alerts”. Basically, people set their furniture on their curb for you (or the garbage truck) to pick up. With that said, be wary of picking things up that are at someone’s house or not on the curb. Asking to meet somewhere would be best.

The UK’s site Preloved has a nice little section called Freeloved where you can find all sorts of free goods. Notably, you’ll find free furniture!

What I initially saw on this section of the site is a picture grid akin to Pinterest Use Pinstamatic To Pin Text, Music, Websites & Locations To Pinterest Use Pinstamatic To Pin Text, Music, Websites & Locations To Pinterest Lately, I’ve been exploring Pinterest for all its possible applications.

After clicking through for more free stuff, you’ll need to input exactly you want in the search box. Based on what I saw, there are no real categories for what types of free items exist, so you’ll need to bring your Googling skills along for the ride.

SnaffleUp [UK]

SnaffleUp is yet another Craiglist-like site, but rather than being home to mostly sell and want ads, it is devoted to recycling Recycle For A Cause: 5 Ways You Can Donate Your Old Cellphone & Help Make The World A Better Place Recycle For A Cause: 5 Ways You Can Donate Your Old Cellphone & Help Make The World A Better Place We can help by donating our old cellphones (and other electronics), so that the recycling industry can reclaim some more percentage from the precious metals that gets mined.

Just punch in the item that you are looking for, and you’ll be sure to find something. Granted, the selection may be slim depending on when you are looking. However, I found six items for the term “chair” posted within the past month.

Gumtree [UK]

UK website Gumtree has a small section of freebies where you can find various items including free furniture. To be honest, it was a little difficult for me to find the section on the site itself, and I ended up having to use the old Google GV Connect: Use Google Voice From The Mac Dashboard GV Connect: Use Google Voice From The Mac Dashboard Read More machine to search “Gumtree free”.

As for the selection provided, I did find quite a items on the site. Those items included chairs, wardrobes, and even a children’s bed. However, mixed in with the results are a few “want” ads.


The Internet is full of all things free, and fortunately, that includes many practical items! However, as with all cases of Internet interaction, be very careful with who you speak to or meet with.

What other sites have you used to find free furniture? What has your experience with finding free furniture on the Internet been? What do you think of the sites shown here?

    Thanks for the informative online catalogue of 'free stuff' sites - I am registered with at least 4 of these and in desperate need of furniture and not really getting anywhere in my searches. Freecycle is meant to be a good place to start and occassionally you do find some free cool stuff - depends how often you search the site however. I have placed 'wanted' items on these sites yet not hearing back from people. I give a lot too - smaller things when I can and so being able to recieve in kind, something of an oddity in my own personal experiences.

    The other thing I discovered is that although there are many wealthy people about and happily donating their free furniture, often do it via registered local charitable organizations and (unless) you qualify for their 'free stuff', almost impossible to get hold of it, even if you are a disabled or on low-incomes . I am am now turning to more desperate measures such as contacting individuals with things for sale and appealing to their good nature - not yet achieving the desired result may I add, yet all of my local charitable organizations are most generally committed to eldrely care as oppossed to low-income or disabled adults.

      I agree with your statement except that many charitable organizations are wanting to profit-margin saleable stuff and although it does always sell at higher end prices, not to those of us who have surplus cash to buy even second-hand furniture in excellent quality. I have researched around the internet to see what 'free stuff' might be out there yet now starting to find out that very little is actually free - many charities that sell furniture only donate it freely to other registered charities - homeless and elderly care projects come first and free in the vast many cases.

      Swapping is a great idea and fully support your notion on this - why freecycle is such a fab place for certain things, yet not necessarily for (high-end) furniture that will be of lasting quality.

    There are church charities, thrift stores and resale shops for almost free stuff, and you can check the dumpsters at apartment complexes at the end of the month for move-outs!

    Should add Freecycle (US). It's a network that connects people in your area. Everything must be given for free. You can offer items and request items. A quarter of my apartment is from there. :P
