Keep items out of landfills and upcycle with Used.ca’s Free page!

Who doesn’t love getting stuff for free? On Used.ca’s Free page, not only can you find hidden gems, but you can also participate in the ever-so-important upcycling movement! 

Posting free ads for these items instead of leaving them on the curb not only saves taxpayers money but also helps the upcycling movement and passes your items on to other members of the community to appreciate. It’s a win-win!

Here are ten reasons why you should post an ad on Used.ca’s Free page:

#1 – You can post your Free items for FREE on the Used.ca sites: Not only can you declutter and upcycle, but you can do so at no cost. Can’t beat that!

#2 – It will save you money: Disposing of items at dumps is super expensive. Why not post a free ad instead? 

#3 – It will save you time: Time is money, and spending time AND money to get rid of unwanted items sucks. Not only do you have to spend money at the dump, but you also have to waste your time loading the items and driving there. 

Posting an item for free will save you loading and driving time. And interested people will use their own time to come and get the item!

#4 – You can post as many free items as you would like: The more free stuff you have to upcycle, the better! Remember the old adage, “one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.”

#5 – It helps you declutter your life: We all tend to hold on to stuff that we no longer use or need. Maybe it’s because of the memories they hold? The reality is that posting items on Used.ca can help you declutter, for free!

#6 – It keeps things out of the landfill: Enough said. 

#7 – It helps save the world: Keeping items out of the landfill and promoting upcycling literally helps save the world by reducing our carbon footprint.

#8 – It inspires creativity: You may think those old wooden window frames you’ve posted for free are just junk. But thanks to DIY blogs and Pinterest, someone may take them and repurpose them as picture frames, abstract art, or even in a wedding reception as a seating chart. The possibilities are endless!

#9 – It will make someone else really happy: People love to get things for free. Also, not everyone is equally fortunate and getting an item for free can make a big difference in someone’s life.

#10 – It will make you really happy:  Nothing feels better than helping someone else out. While you may think that the old bed frame you posted for free is old and that nobody will take it. There will be someone out there who’s struggling, and a free bed frame will make all the difference.

Convinced yet? Sign-up for an account and post an ad on Used.ca’s Free page today! Not only will you reduce your carbon footprint, but you might also save taxpayers some money and make someone’s day. Sounds like a no-brainer!

It would be great if I could find the FREE section on your new site. Even searching for free gives me one free item listed then the rest cast money Is it just me or is it difficult to find the free section?
