I first found freegle when my dad died in 2016, I had to clear the house in Sale and it was full of old stuff from the 60's and 70's, charity shops were not interested, apart from BHF who took away about 11 boxes of books. I had all sorts of stuff and basically posted an open house for people to come and take what they needed, I posted pics of the bigger furniture, and met loads of lovely people and gave away loads of stuff to people setting up new homes and starting new businesses. I got a really positive feeling from doing that.
Since then I have posted stuff in the Southampton freegle with limited success. , They are def not as active down south.
Sadly my mum passed away before Christmas and I am in a similar situation with her house,it is full of stuff, but now we are in the middle of a lockdown, all the charity shops are shut so this is really my only option, I don't want to put this stuff in a skip, so back on Freegle, though I am missing the interaction with people to find out their stories
