They say that the best things in life aren’t free, but once in a while you can find some pretty cool stuff that you don’t have to pay for. There’s quite a community of people who like to give away things that they no longer need to people who do. One of the most prominent seems to be Freecycle, however, I’ve not really been a fan. In order to participate, you have to sign into a group, and get updates on a message board. Everything is just sort of a jumbled, unorganized mess.
FreeelyWheely is a new site that’s hoping to give people a new place to give away (and find) free items. It has a pretty simple interface, letting you browse by category and pick how far away you want to look. Unfortunately the site is a bit barren right now, but hopefully as people find out about it, you’ll start seeing more listings pop up.
