You folks in dire straights who need free stuff, have you tried www.freecycle.org? I read the pleas for “help” in the daily Missoulian. Often, what folks are asking for is readily available from generous folks offering free stuff to give away on www.freecycle.org: furniture, food, vehicle parts, housewares, computers, building materials, do-dads and dust-catchers.
Both Missoula and the Bitterroot Valley have Freeycle groups. It’s free to post both “wanted” and “offers.” A yard sale is a lot of work. Giving it away is a cakewalk.
