    I share your frustrations, I don't bother with it any more. I live on the Isle of Wight and its just all about the same people wanting wanting wanting. I'd rather give stuff to a charity shop so they can sell it and maybe make some money.

    What town do you come from lol?

    yep, i have offered good on freecycle. sadly some people have the nerve to post WANT requests!
    This is annoying. I know the one my sister runs often send notes out saying continual wanted requests will be rejected.

    Don't get that on the Bristol one .......I have managed to get rid of loads of stuff. Brill idea but I never give stuff to users who seem to get stuff to trade elsewhere

    I only hope my request for a handsome hunk with a big foot size get's … I only hope my request for a handsome hunk with a big foot size get's replies,lol:-D



    let me know how that works out :whistling:

    I dont use mine anymore, got rid of loads of stuff when we moved house and most were really grateful but the last couple of times i didnt even get a thank you!

    Someone picked up our old king sized bed (wasnt manky old lol) only 2 yrs old and they came, we helped them load it up and nothing - not even a cheers so ****** it!

    Yep same is true for me..... I give give give. I gave two PC monitors, a washing machine, a desk and few other items......


    The thing that amuses me is that 'females' are the only ones to respond and always send you an email with all the kisses at the end etc ..... as though it is supposed to flatter me. Whichever one emails first I go with....

    Anyway these so called ladies always send a text saying 'my boyfriend is coming to collect it' Then a bunch of three young male Chav's in a car turn up and start noseying around the garage while you are getting the item out for them.

    One time I called the number because the person was late...I said 'is Sarah there?' The old miserable woman on the other end of the phone said there was nobody there called Sarah.... but she had a son who was out to collect a TV.


    The secret to get things.... PRETEND you are a woman!!! People would rather give to women because they don't want odd ball blokes coming to their homes....... so guys pretend to be women!

    Freecycle is fab, I love it, have got rid of loads of stuff and picked up a wardrobe in the past etc etc. I know what you mean about the wanted ads, it happens all over. The best I ever saw was a person who asked for, in succession, a car, a laptop, and then..... a house.

    Ps: Just to clarify, it WASNT me!

    that's what narks me, there's always someone checking out ebay and then … that's what narks me, there's always someone checking out ebay and then requesting, obviously to sell on, good for them if they get it, but it defeats the purpose, my post ie asking for £10 notes was done in sarcastic jest towards those peeps, i got moderated, but they (the begging so and so's) don't!!!!!!!!!! I like to help people, if I'm getting rid of stuff I'd rather give than sell, but some peeps take the pee, but that's life!!!!!!!!! I only hope my request for a handsome hunk with a big foot size get's replies,lol:-D



    In this town?! I'm afraid to say we aren't that good

    I thought the rules said that you were only allowed a certain number of "want" requests per week/month?? At least, that's how it seems to be in our area.

    I've actually seen cars get given away on there though (albeit old and very very well-used ones) but still, it happens.

    lolz, true, true, i'm sure there's been a thread about that at some … lolz, true, true, i'm sure there's been a thread about that at some point, hahaha:thumbsup:although I'm sure you're the one exception:-D
