My step sister decided to get rid of things she didnt want any more by putting them in her garage and inviting visiting friends to go and see if there was anything in her 'shop' that they needed or wanted.
She got rid of alot of things this way and got a really got response from this.
Now they bring things to put in the shop too to be passed on.
I have been going through the house and yard too and have afew bags to ready for the next time I go up to visit.
So, if you like the idea of recycling in a new and innovative way, maybe you could set up a little pass it forward shop too.
Hers in only 2 bookshelves and abit of space in front for big things and doesnt take up alot of space.
