Sure, there are a few exceptions to this statement, but we’ll leave those alone… However, you may be looking for some places to pick up some free t-shirts or something a little on the higher end of things.

Today, I’ve got five websites that you can find some free clothes on, and the best part is that each of them are totally free of charge (I know, I know – you’re on the edge of your seat).

We’ve talked a little bit about Freecycle on MakeUseOf before 10 Websites That Help You Recycle Or Reuse Old Stuff & Protect Our Environment 10 Websites That Help You Recycle Or Reuse Old Stuff & Protect Our Environment Read More , so I just wanted to get it out of the way since you might have already heard about it. The site was developed as a way for people to get rid of their unneeded items in a much more environmentally-friendly way than dumping them in a landfill. However, along with recycling used computer gadgets and such, you can actually grab free clothes from Freecycle.

Essentially, Freecycle is all about giving away what you don’t need and getting stuff that you do – for free. About the only thing that somewhat frustrated me with this site was the lack of a legitimate search function, but after a few clicks, I found a few dress shirts near my town that were being given away free of charge! Furthermore, you can post “Wanted” ads for clothing that you may need.

So you may have noticed that Freecycle is starting to have footprints across the world. Well, there’s more good news for my UK friends. Freegle is a site that is… well… it’s just like Freecycle. I could actually copy and paste the above two paragraphs here, replace each mention of Freecycle with the word “Freegle”, and it would be a perfect description. Unfortunately, my editor Mark wouldn’t appreciate this very much.

From what I understand, Freegle actually used to be a part of Freecycle, but something went down and the UK crew split. However, both sites are wonderful (but as a note, Freegle’s web design is much cleaner and more user-friendly).

Oh hey, Craigslist! How did you get on this MUO article, too? Yes, we’ve covered the list of Craig quite a few times here on MUO, but there’s one item you should take note of on Craigslist’s front page. Right under the “For Sale” section of the site, you’ll see a link that simply says “free”.

Well… I bet you’re wondering where that’s going to lead you, right? This section of the site is full of free stuff just ready for you to take. After a quick search in my area, I found shoes, baby clothes, and even adult-sized clothes. One pretty nice item was an advertisement by a thrift store 3 Cool Online Thrift Stores to Save Yourself a Fortune 3 Cool Online Thrift Stores to Save Yourself a Fortune Luckily, there are not only great online shopping deals nowadays, but online thrift stores too.

Free Stuff Channel

The site mentioned here is a whole lot like a site called Hey, It’s Free! Ease The Stress On Your Bank Account With "Hey, It's Free!" [US-Only] Ease The Stress On Your Bank Account With "Hey, It's Free!" [US-Only] I'm a university student, and as you might be able to guess, I'm all about the free stuff – food, swag, school supplies....I guess it's just nice when you don't have to spend what little... Read More that I reviewed a few weeks ago. Basically, the creators of the site go around the Internet in search for magical items such as free promotional products and special offers coupons. Pretty cool.

However, if there’s anything that businesses like to make, it’s t-shirts, right? It also seems as if companies love giving away their t-shirts. Fortunately, in addition to everything else the site has to offer, the Free Stuff Channel goes around looking for promo items such as these. The site is updated daily, so you could have quite a large wardrobe before the year is over.

Cool Freebie Links

Cool Freebies Links looks like a site from the nineties and it also uses my least favorite font – Comic Sans Combat Chronic Comic Sans Font Misusage With These 3 Sites Combat Chronic Comic Sans Font Misusage With These 3 Sites It seems like wherever you are, there is always going to be some form of the printed word within your field of view. With so many words floating around, designers take great care to make... Read More – but it has quite a bit of free stuff that is collected in the same fashion as the Free Stuff Channel. It’s a lot of text to read, but each bit of it is very valuable.

I’m not entirely sure how often the site updates, but they had quite a collection of promo clothing for you to grab if you’re lucky. Look through their listings, and you may even find other sites for other free materials.


Well that’s that, my thread-mooching friends. If you’re low on cash, you definitely have quite a few options to choose from for free clothes. Sure, with some of these you may have to put up with a company logo but that’s better than running around naked, right?

    the cool freebie links has more scam related junk than anything else...for every half way decent deal that I found, there was 5 - 6 scam related garbage listed. I have since added the site to my block list.  

    My advice is to stay away from COOL FREEBIE LINKS.

      Hi James. Glad to hear from you. Skimming through the site once more, I can agree that there are some scammy-ish looking links on there. However, at the time of this article, I found (what I believe) were some legitimate-looking ones as well, but some of them were not necessarily just clothes.

      What these kinds of sites do is try to to bring a bunch of links together on some subject. Nevertheless, looking back on this site, it might have been better to leave this one alone. My apologies, and I hope that the other sites serve you well.

    Went to the Freecycle site and got a warning from WOT (site has a "bad reputation), so I didn't land there.  I trust WOT.  The one time I ignored a warning, my old computer got a virus.

      The site seems fairly reputable based on the other regions of the Internet, but this might be something to keep in mind.

      From my personal opinion i've never had any issues with freecycle. And i have gotten a few things from here. And as far as your problem i don't see it being a virus more of malware. Which is not to do with the site it's self more of advert link's.

    Perhaps you can edit the article to let your readers know that Freecycle operates in other countries also.

      Right on. I'm looking into it. I'm sorry about that, everyone. As a matter of fact, here's a link to ALL the countries:

      I just checked that out, and I'm sorry about that, David. I thought I had the site pretty much covered, and I even researched off-site for info on it. My mistake.

        Freecycle also operates in Germany (used it extensively), Canada (used it), and many other countries. Basically, it's an open network. Anyone can create a Freecycle group for their city and join the network.

        Your description was correct, until a while ago, when Freecycle started operating again in the UK. Their site is actually much better than Freegle now, and has a proper search facility. I now use both...
