  • you can try .  I've received some things frmo there...some good, some not, lol.  Also, sign up for Clorox MomWire.  They will send you coupons and new products to test out and keep for free as long as you promise to send them an email with your opinions on it.

  • Just about every geographic major metro area has a local FreeCycle group. They do request that you offer items for free in exchange for taking items from other users for free (they would prefer that people don't go on and scoop up everything they can for free -- especially if they're probably selling it at the flea market or yard sales). It's just a way for people to reach out to each other and prevent perfectly useful items from ending up in the landfill.

  • I belong to After you join, you just fill out the survey about the things you are interested in and they will send you things to test. The only thing they ask in return is for you to go back to shespeaks and rate the item and talk on the forum about it.

  • usually has some pretty good stuff on there for free...its got everything from furniture to clothes. All they ask is that you put stuff on there to give to others as well. I have never done it, but it does seem like a really good deal.
