Amazon

Amazon has a category dedicated to garden tools. The Garden tool and accessories page lists dozens of items with amazing deals, including free shipping. The good thing about Amazon is that you can read customer reviews first to get their point of view about the qualities of the product before you purchase it. Other online stores worth checking out include eBay, Best Buy, and Gardener’s Supply Company. They all offer discounts periodically and you can find out more by visiting their websites.

Freecycle.org

If you want free garden tools, join freecyle.org. This site connects people who want to give and receive free items within the local community. All you have to do is join the group in your local area and search which items people in your area are giving away. Once you find an item, contact the person and organize how to connect. Keep in mind that listings change quickly. Therefore, you'd want to keep an eye on it.

Craigslist

Another rich resource that gives you access to a variety of garden tools and accessories is Craigslist.org. To find stuff, sign up, find your local area and browse what items are available for sale. Sometimes, you might be lucky to find items offered free of charge.

Thrift Stores

Check out popular thrift stores regularly and you could land unbelievable deals. The majority of thrift stores support several charities. This means that you can get great bargains while at the same time helping to fund a worthy cause. Although most items in thrift stores are used, they are usually in great condition. The best time to find items is in spring and fall when people are cleaning out their sheds and getting rid of items they no longer need.

Newspaper Classifieds

Manufacturers also post ads in local newspaper classifieds where you can find inexpensive deals. Most papers post ads during the weekends, so check out the newspapers for available deals.
