Free & Valuable Second Hand Items

Ask a Question

The other day I was on Olio (for those who do not know, Olio is an app where you can pick up food items and other things for free. It's purpose is to cut down on food waste.) and someone was giving away an amazing pair of Dr Martin Shoes for FREE! They were worn and had a few scratches, and the person who gave them could have at least made £30 easily if she sold them on Vinted or Depop or eBay etc. But instead, just for picking them up, I got them and was delighted to have a new pair of fancy shoes!

Have any of you had the delight of getting something for free online which excited you? or did you find it outside someones home, to be taken?

I recently got an activity table, 2 ride ons, 5 books and a massive bag of clothes for my son for free. I did offer each person something for it but they didn't want anything.

I have given away quite a few clothes and shoes and some of my sons toys recently which I could easily have gotten money for but I wanted to help others out.

Wow! Sounds great! I hope you felt accomplished when you gave away some of your items - I'm sure they've gone to someone who needs it!

SweetCinnamon I felt happy that someone else would be able to use them and that I had saved them some money too.

I have used the OLIO app for putting food items on but no one collected as it doesn’t seem like many people use it in my are which is a shame. I have left a mirror outside before which was taken away the same day.

Ah its a shame your local OLIO isn't up to scratch. Try to carry on using it though, it has only been recently that my area has had a massive boost in users, and what a boost it has been.
