CHICAGO, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A suburban Chicago man says he posted a Craigslist ad asking people to come and take away all of his stuff for free before he moves to Virginia.

Brian Bagnall, 32, of Franklin Park, Ill., said about 200 people showed up to his house Saturday in response to the ad, which read "We're Moving and Giving Away Lots of Our Stuff for FREE," the Chicago Tribune reported.

Within about 2 hours, Bagnall's home was nearly empty, he said. People took his couches, beds and other "nice" furniture, as well as tools, kitchen utensils, boxes of tissue and toilet paper, and other items.

"People were in the freezer taking food out," Bagnall said.

Bagnall said that overall, the crowd was orderly. A sign on his front door listed rules like no shoving and no lining up outside.

"It wasn't Walmart," he said, referring to fights in stores on Black Friday.
