Need to get rid of extra stuff fast, with minimal effort? Want to feel good about re-circulating things that you are no longer using back into the community? Try a craigslist.org “Curb Alert”.
The basics: Go to craigslist.org and post an ad to the classifieds, under the “for sale/wanted”, “free stuff” category. Put “Curb Alert” in the title, along with a couple of words describing the item or items. In the ad, post pictures of the item(s) and a general description of the location where they will be placed at the curb, such as, “end of cul-d-sac, Oak Street, Mayberry, NC” or “near the intersection of 10th and West Streets, Greenville, VA”. Put the items on the curb and watch them disappear! Be a good craigslist citizen and make sure to remove the ad as soon as the items are taken.
You are free of the burden of unwanted items and you have the good karma of having provided them to someone who needed them!
