Free Classifieds is the new wave of the future. A lot of companies that are hiring, no longer place ads in the local newspapers, instead they list their openings in online classifieds. Not only online, but free online classifieds.
A great way to get rid of a few unwanted items, and to make a buck in the process, is to list the items on CraigsList or another free classified advertising web site. So, before you place that ad in the paper, try to sell it for free!
