    Yes, I think it's great. I hate throwing things out that still have life in them. The only down side is it can attract people trying to make money. Last year I advertised an Ikea tv stand/cabinet that was still current in the range and in excellent condition. I had loads of enquiries and thought first come first served - they picked it up early one sunday evening. At the same time I was looking for an Ikea cabinet from the same range and that night I did a search on gumtree - only to find my cabinet for sale at £40. I was pretty mad as if I had wanted to make money I would have sold it myself, so you do have to be careful.

    Last year, my daughter went to India to work at a school/orphanage and they sent her a list of things they needed. I put the list on freecycle and had lots of offers. She ended up filling most of her suitcase - old laptops, a couple of musical instruments, clothes etc. Everyone was so generous.

    LOL,there's always one,what did Rona tell you about reading posts properly! ;) :D
    It's just the kids stuff they have outgrown and no longer use.

    The food is going really well,they are enjoying it and dishes are always empty,I thought they would be ok on it,so I will stick with it I think especially at that price.Delivery was quick too. :)
