Money can't buy everything, it's true. Want proof? Buy a pickup truck. You might become every moving friend's best friend overnight, but you can also get lots of free stuff, just by keeping an open eye. And maybe an open mind.

To do so, you'll have to be a frequent follower of the bottom-feeding catfish of the Internet, Craigslist. CL is chock full of ads for free stuff that's available only to people who can haul it away, which means either a cargo van or a pickup truck.

It's one of the more fascinating, vexing societal conundrums of modern America, one that you maybe weren't expecting to stumble upon here. Ironically, you have to be able to afford the truck in the first place--but once you have one, you could comfortably furnish an apartment if you're quick enough on email and cell phone in a city the size of Atlanta, roughly six million people.

We scanned the Craigslist "Free" ads for the past week out of curiosity--and since we were hosting a yard sale, to scope out the competition, too. Pretty quickly, we came up with our own maxim: he who has a truck can have as many free trampolines as he wants. And sadly, as many free pets, too. Firewood? Check, too, as long as you're willing to chop it down.

For the cream of the crap, we found more than a dozen ads that would have us running across town with a pair of helping hands. And some, we've thrown in just because the temptation was almost strong enough to make us doubt ourselves.

First, the basics--a place to sleep, to eat, and to sit:
