Sometimes Free Stuff Isn’t Worth It

We all wear socks. Boots and shoes just wouldn’t be very comfortable without them. The problem is, occasionally, over time, you loose a sock or two. Maybe it is mysterious, maybe they are just sort of small, but whatever the reason, if you hold on to your leftover singletons, you’ll end up with a big stack mismatched socks. Then what?

Well, you can always do what the ad poster that $kaycog found last time did, and just give them away! Perhaps some other lonely soul possessing copious unmatched socks can somehow find solace in pairing up the piles! Now, maybe fuzzy socks don’t give you that electric tingle, but surely getting something free does! Get out there on you favorite local online classifieds and see what sort of fantastic tech or semi-sort-of-tech-related free items you can find to share in the comments!

    Inspired by Hemingway's six-word story no doubt: Free baby food.

      That stuff is seriously expensive. putting aside arguments about whether mom's milk is best – if your kid starts eating solid foods and you have leftover formula, passing it on to someone in need is the right thing to do.

        It works even better if you include the words "TOTALLY NOT TAMPERED WITH" into your Craigslist ad…

        My kid went through a phase where he would be fine for a while with a certain brand/product, then all of a sudden reject it. The doctor would have us switch to something else, it would work (for a while), we'd stock up, and then go through the process again three weeks later. This happened for at least three cycles, and we gave away the unused food afterwards–a lot more than what is pictured above.
