Does Anyone Else Love Olio?

Ask a Question

I was dismayed about a comment I saw regarding Olio. Olio helped me when I needed 2 sofas and I ended up with 2x2Seater Leather Sofas in fantastic condition!! No money changed hands but I go on there everyday and I see how much stuff is re-used and food, No-good items that are saved from the bin!! Have a look guys I mean I've seen luxury cakes, breads, coffee right through to a pair of size9 men's Caterpillar Boots! Let me know what you think about itπŸ‘

I'm not sure what Olio is, to be honest. Until you mentioned this, I didn't know it existed. From what you've said, it sounds like a site a bit like Craigslist or Freecycle? Sounds exciting for people who want to renovate on a budget or stretch their grocery budget. Thanks for the tip about this website!

I've tried to give stuff away on Olio lots of times, no one has ever taken it. I put it up on fb and it is gone very quickly. Olio obviously isn't used much in our area. I've seen loads of sofas for free up on fb. I think it is a brilliant thing and I love that it means things don't go to waste, but it has never been successful for me so I deleted it. I have much more success on fb.

You know I think it does.. I've Heard a few people say that.. I think they're fairly new so maybe the more people that talk about Olio, the more people will have a look.. It's a bit like Gumtree but completely free.. Imnotcheap

I think FB is brilliant for selling and donating unwanted items...Preloved is very good too.

MrsCraig I think Preloved is maybe down to location .... here in Moray and when I tried for someone else in the Midlands, I had no luck at all but in Cumbria it was terrific! ...

BORDERJOE it must be, I'm in midlothian and it doesn't seem to be popular. I grew up just outside of Moray.

It looks fab but there's nothing nearby where I live. Shame as I would probably use it

If it's like Freegle and Freecycle, yes it's great. I've had a 4K TV (with a slight tint) and an excellent late 80s stereo from Freegle. It keeps stuff in circulation, going to people who can use it instead of being dumped at landfill.

Definitely in agreement with you there, it's silly really to dump perfectly good nosh or TV's etc when someone else would be glad of it. #Love Olio
