One person's junk is the next person's treasure.
The things you don't use around the house anymore and that wind up in a cupboard or garage, may make someone the happy owner of something they can really enjoy and/or use. And the cost is nothing.
My friends and I get together once a year and trade stuff. Anything goes; clothes, dishes and kitchenware, linens, small furniture, knick knacks, etc. I keep a box in the spare bedroom closet for those items I don't care for anymore and know that it will get moved along the next time we have our get-together.
The fun part is that we enjoy an afternoon together and come home with "new" stuff that didn't cost a cent. It's double the fun when you see something of yours being enjoyed in your friend's home.

I like this idea a lot more than FreeCycle - it's more personal, and you get time with friends as a fringe benefit.
