Some people take photos and write great descriptions and sell items on Ebay auctions.
I can't be bothered.
So I turn to something guaranteed to move stuff out the door faster than a speeding train.
Facebook "Free stuff" Groups.
In my area there are a couple of Free Items pages, The idea is you just take a picture and let the first person who says "Mine" have it. They collect it, it's gone. Happy Days.
Yesterday I put a bag on there.. I put up two pictures and described it.
Free : "Large bag with shoulder strap, in new condition, perfect size for laptop, but can also be used for craft stuff, scrapbooking... two large inner pockets. MUST COLLECT today."
Pretty clear I would have thought.
So within 2 minutes a woman messaged me.
"What else can it be used for?"
I wrote back "Umm, it's a bag. So bag-gy things. Put stuff in it. "
She replies. "Oh Okay. Can I pick it up on Friday?"
I reply "I would like it collected today, like I said in the ad."
She writes "Can you please deliver it to me? I live out of town."
Sigh. Lady, it's a free, 'as new' bag. Free, I'm giving it. Now you want me to use my petrol to bring it to you too?
There is a bit of a "Give an inch, take a mile" attitude going on there and although I realise she was asking politely , I can't help but roll my eyes and wonder.
Maybe there has been too much Christmas spirit consuming, maybe it's the end of year crazy, maybe I just don't tolerate 'stupid' very well.
What do you do with clutter?
