In my building, we have one wall near the elevator bank that is the dedicated "free stuff" place. Got something that's not useful to you anymore, but it'd be a pity to just throw it away? Stick it by the "free stuff" wall!
Not everyone bothers to make a sign that says "free stuff", but we've put things there for so long that by now, everyone knows that anything that is put by that wall is fair game.
Just recently I scored nine (nine!) DVDs. That is quite a few hours of absolutely free entertainment - thank you, my neighbor!
What is absolutely perfect about the "free stuff" wall is that this "swap" requires no actual and potentially awkward contact with your neighbors. Your old stuff moves on, which is absolutely perfect from the environment point of view, and it takes you almost no time at all to do this good deed.
Examples of things I've "recycled" this way is books, house plants, magazines, flower pots, DVDs, and old balcony chairs. I am amazed that everything goes, usually in a matter of hours.
What could you stand to remove from your home today? Is there an item that's not serving you anymore, but would make someone else's day?
Thank you for stopping by Pieliekamais!
