Freecycle is a place where people post stuff that they don't want anymore. Instead of dealing with the hassle of selling it, they just want to get rid of it.

Like they say, another person's trash could be your treasure. There's a ton of free baby stuff just waiting out there on Freecycle and you've just got to go looking for it.

You can find a ton of free baby stuff on Cragslist you know where to look.

If there's some baby stuff that you want but it isn't free, just keep an eye on the listing. If the item has been listed for awhile and isn't selling, contact the seller and see if you can possibly get it for free. Most of the times the seller will want to unload it anyway if the item doesn't sell. You never know until you ask!

Be aware that taking a used crib and other baby items can be risky at times, given recalls, outdated building materials (such as lead paint), and simply not knowing what the whole history of the item, so do as much research as possible to make sure your baby will be safe.


Have a Baby Shower

Baby showers are a great way to get free baby stuff! Convince a family member or friend to throw you a baby shower and invite everyone you know. They'll want to celebrate this happy time with you and shower you in free baby stuff.

When people have garage sales, they often get rid of the stuff they don't sell when the garage sale is over. Visit some garage sales when they are about to close and ask them if you can have ​the baby stuff that they didn't sell. You might be surprised at all the free baby stuff you can score if you just ask.


Facebook Marketplace

You don't need to wait for garage sale season to get free baby stuff from your neighbors anymore. Facebook Marketplace allows you to browse your local area for free baby stuff. Use the "Only Show Free Listings" option to see only the completely free baby stuff offered.

I recently did a search in my area and I found a free toddler bed, bounce chair, formula, baby bath, toys, car seats, clothes, a stroller, and lots more.

Baby swaps or kid swaps are when a group of parents get together and trade baby stuff they don't want anymore for baby stuff they do want. These can be a great opportunity to get rid of your old baby stuff and get some brand new free baby stuff. Set one up with your friends, family, neighbors, or co-workers.
