Selling or sharing your unwanted items
If you have clothes, toys, tools or any other unwanted items which are still in good condition and working order, you could consider selling or sharing them or giving them away. You can sell unwanted pieces on websites like eBay or Gumtree, you can hire things out at Open Shed, and you can list items to give away at sites like Freecycle or Ziilch.
