“Dear PoP,

I am moving soon and would like to get rid of several pieces of furniture. It is all serviceable but well-used and mostly of Ikea origin (so has little/minimal value). I would be perfectly happy if someone just showed up and took it away for free. Do you (or anyone) have any opinions on using the “free” section of Craigslist v. Freecycle? Or any other suggestions (like a charity that will come and pick up my stuff?) Thanks a lot!”

Anyone have a preference? I feel like I’ve heard good things about freecycle.
