Now people are telling us about freenapkin.com
-- which appears to be an entire website devoted to the craigslist "free stuff" category
. PC World
calls it a "site that will matter" but we wonder if, like CB radio, it isn't a heartland thing that will not translate to New York. It's one thing to read about a free sofabed and loveseat
if you live in Wenatchee, Washington, for example, but if you live here you a.) probably don't have a van to move it in, and b.) worry about bedbugs
. On the other hand, there are so many freenapkin.com listings for New York City
at any given time that you stand a good chance of finding something you might-could use within a couple of blocks. And they sometimes have things like Blackberries
which should be easy to check for bedbugs. Did we mention we worry about bedbugs?
