When was the last time you got something for nothing?
What in the world am I talking about?
During this time of social distance, it’s really hard to not feel isolated, and as some of co-workers were discussing recently, the temptation to buy more things is stronger than ever…. so what do you do? So how to fill both needs?
Easy- join your local buy nothing/sell nothing group!
It’s exactly what it sounds like, and it’s all people in your neighborhood giving things away, (most of it porch pick up so no contact but you have to coordinate timing with people and when you post, sometimes you talk a little about the thing you are giving away or why it’s available, or in the case of our KARAOKE machine (telling the story of how we met, which charmed the owner and won it for us!) and asking for things. It the modern day equivalent of asking a neighbor for a cup of sugar and it is great! It encourages the idea of getting something for NOTHING. Where else can you get that? NOWHERE!
I have made friends, gotten job leads, and some cool stuff for the munchkin! not to mention some VERY nice clothes for moi!
My shirt-Her hoodie- FREE!
The best part is that when you get something for nothing, you feel compelled to commence decluttering and give back yourself, so you get free things and you give away things that you were not really using anyway…. sounds like a win-win to me.
How about you?
