Do you own stuff you don’t need?
Are your closets and basement space full of earthly belongings you have no use for? Think about the last time you moved to a new place. How much of the stuff you and your pals carried around was something you really needed?
Your idle stuff is good and generally usable, sure. You just have no use for it (or haven’t had for ages). Maybe you could make a few bucks by selling your stuff, but placing separate ads and waiting for people to contact you, arranging the meeting etc. is just not worth your time.
What about recycling centres then? They are nice and all but transporting your stuff to the lot often requires a car and time – including unloading the stuff, waiting for the staff and so on. A day trip to a landfill is not sustainable or fun at all. Then, of course, we’ve got social media and its wide range of second hand and recycling groups. They are handy, oh yes. Yet waiting for comments, reservations and meeting potential buyers can become a burden.
Freebag. It makes giving and receiving good stuff as smooth as ever. Freebag is a Finnish service that brings together people who struggle with stuff they have no use for and those who do. The stuff moving around via
Freebag can be anything. Clothes, books, music, toys, collector’s items.. Everything goes as long as it’s not total trash or illegal. The stuff listed in a single Freebag post has to fit in a bag of your choice.
SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
Register at freebag.fi. Take photo of the stuff you want to get rid of. Upload the photo with information about its content. Include details for the time and place for the handover. Wait for a reservation. Give your belongings to the person who called it. And everyone wins. Or maybe you are you looking for free, useful stuff?
