Cheap is chic but free is fun!

Posted By on Tue, Mar 17, 2009 at 8:56 AM

When I was in high school, my dad bought me a cheap, used car to get around in, and my mom flipped out. She simply doesn't believe in used goods. I love her to death, but I firmly disagree with the notion that cheap is bad.

With today's economy — and idiot insurance companies who're using bailout money to pay employees bonuses, grrrr — cheap is chic. Cheap is smart.

But what's smarter? Free.

FreeNapkin.com is a great site to find FREE stuff, some of it vintage (like a Scooby Doo lunchbox), some of it warm and cuddly (like kittens), some of it kind of odd (like a hydroponic system). It's very similar to Craigslist, in that it's organized by states and people post up items they want to get rid of.
