Portland On The Cheap

Shopping:  Free Stuff

Updated September 2015

Around The Sun Blog
Of course we're going to add this super awesome web site to this section!  Check it out more than once a week because whenever a FREE deal is announced, it is posted immediately on Aroundthesunblog.  This is one of our Top Three Portland money-savers so bookmark it!
Birthday Perks
Check out our section on this web site!
Free stuff, check daily cause you never know what you might find.  Or if you want to get rid of something, post on this Craigslist section.
Pretty simple concept:  you post something for FREE or you search the posts for something FREE that you want.  You need a free Yahoo email account; be sure to read the General Guidelines and Policies and then go for it.
Free Geek
Get a free computer...FREE GEEK receives donated used computers and refurbishes them with care. They are then "adopted out" to volunteers in exchange for 24 hours of service in Free Geek's recycling facility. Anyone willing to come down and work is eligible to join Free Geek and adopt a machine.  Please see web site for more details.
Garage Sales
Some people donate all unsold stuff from their garage sales; help them out by offering to haul it away on the last sales day.  Worth a shot for free stuff.  For more information on garage sale web sites, please read this post that we published a few years ago.
Schoolhouse Supplies (teachers only)
You have to be a teacher.  You have to be with the Portland Public Schools district.  Please see web site for more information.
Wireless Internet
Try these resources:

OpenWiFiSpots:  new wifi hotspots added daily, now up to over 66,000 free wifi hotspots in the U.S.
WiFi PDX:  has a cool feature "enter your address" for closest free Wifi
WiFi Free Spot Directory:  includes Portland suburbs

Yahoo Freecycle Group
Boasts close to 50k members, open to the pubic but you'll need a Yahoo account and you'll need to agree to abide by their rules.
