    I have a few items that might be of interest otherwise I'll just have to tip them, which is a shame really.

    Computer desk - beech effect - looks like there was another shelf on it at some point. Came out of one of the kids bedrooms.


    A couple of forward facing childs cars seats. I think one is a Graco and I'm not sure on the other without checking. Both are tatty as they've been sat in the garage for a few years. Could do with the fabrics washing but all in all they work. We have six baby seats as we had two set up in each car but we don't need as many now so these are the worst of the bunch.

    I have a 2ft stack of Period Living magazines, some dating back 10 years. You'd be wrong if you think that 'period designs' don't change. A 2000 year 'period kitchen' looks nothing like a 2013 'period kitchen'.

    Anyway, I'll keep 'em up here for a few days then I guess the blokes down the tip get them.

    It's a shame we throw away things that aren't at the end of their life.

    I've done it already - no takers on the seats or the mags but some guy wanted the desk but never showed.

    I used Freecycle 18+ months ago and anything I bidded for had either gone within minutes or it was proper rubbish when I collected it. On one occasion I picked something up then took it straight to the tip!!!

    When I'd gifted anything before I'd get loads of message straight away but no-one seems bothered anymore.

    Maybe times aren't as tough as the newspapers say they are!
