DIY classifieds site DiggersList offers up free wildflower seeds to everyone who posts their home improvement materials for the rest of April.

Need that extra push to get rid of those old kitchen cabinets, windows or a loveseat? Here's the perfect incentive: If you're one of the first 1,000 people to post an item for sale on DiggersList
before the end of the month, the site will thank you with a package of seeds sent right to your door.
We love everything about this plan because the good stuff just keeps coming: Once you post the items, people can sign up to buy them and place them in good homes -- places that will actually use
that bamboo flooring instead of letting it sit in the garage. That leaves you with money in your pocket (or, you know, online bank account) and those seeds for you plant anywhere in your house or garden.
Feeling extra eco-ambitious? We dare you to invest the money you make from the sale to buy earth-friendly products like green outdoor furniture
Don't think you have anything to list? Look again: In the back of the garage, under the bed, in that out-of-sight-out-of-mind spot in the backyard. Worried that all that stuff isn't in good enough shape to sell? Check out our favorite feature on the site: Donating to a local non-profit
. And yes, you even qualify for seeds if you post a "Wanted
" ad... so if you've been craving a new drill/dishwasher/drywall, now's the time to speak up.
And of course, it wouldn't be fair if we didn't also point you towards some of our favorite listings: A gallon of Benjamin Moore Newburg Green
, a lovely claw foot bathtub
and bright red lockers
that would give serious life to a boring laundry room.
