Freecycle

This is one of our favorite sites. A quick look today revealed a number of things that you can get free that would make nice unique gifts. Do you have a budding astronomer in your home? Why not pick up a collection of astronomy photographs? You can give them as is, or make a collage or mobile from them. How about your four-footed friends? Maybe they would like a dog training tunnel? Or even a couch or love seat? There were a number of them available some would do nicely for a big dog, others are perfect for a first home or college dorm room. Another thing we love about freecycle is that it is the perfect in with the new out with the old website. Do you have some things you’d like to get rid of? Those may be just the thing someone else needs.

Craigslist Free

Do you have a friend who is an artist? Well, they might enjoy the Native American pottery that is being given away. Or maybe your child has been begging you for a pet? Well, you may need to buy the cage, but the guinea pig is free! Craigslist also has an abundance of couches and older style TVs. Do you have a musician in the family? There are a number of upright pianos that are being given away. You can play them or paint them as an art piece. They make a great prop for photo shoots.

Dirt Chic

Dirt Chic is a women’s consignment high-end clothes store. While the clothing isn’t free, it is reasonably priced and very chic. You also have an opportunity to make money by placing some of your current clothes on consignment.

We hope these ideas have helped to trigger some of your own. At Poulin Auto Sales, naturally, we think that a car makes the perfect gift. While they aren’t free we have a number of specials and deals under $10,000. If you’d like to figure out your credit score or even look into online credit approval  these are both free and available on our website. We wish you the very best and hope to see you soon.
