I have been called a Womble because I hate to throw things away. I much prefer to give things a second (or third... or fourth) life and so joined Freegle. I was also struggling financially for a while as depression makes it hard for me to work more than part-time, so being able to pick up free items has been really helpful.
I have wellies that fit my size 4.5 feet, a coffee table, TV stand and more bits I can't remember, gratefully received from others. I've given away a bicycle, tomato and pepper plants, coat hangers, and so much more. Currently I'm giving away a stack of furniture because we're downsizing and I had lodgers!
