WYR Give it away or get something for it?

Anytime I want to get rid of something I will give it away to someone who needs it or I will donate it , but my mom always has to get something (monies) for her stuff.

  • I just like to give my things away and I don't need to get anything for them. I think for me it is about helping someone else out and not needing to get something in return.

  • A little of both. I love giving things to people who need it, but if I'm in need of cash I will try to sell it.

  • If there is a need for $ I will sell, but if not I will give it away.

  • I agree usually the feel of helping someone out is better then few bucks you could get.

  • I always donate things or give it away. I never know how much something is worth.

  • I use freecycle alot. I love to put things on the porch and know someone is going to come and take it away. Some things I will sell. But the small stuff I give away. Cars I sell.

  • If I'm not using it, I will try to find someone who needs it, and give it to them. As I've gotten older, I find I just don't need as much "stuff", and I try to simplify my life by having less. It makes me happy to see that someone else can use something that I thought was too good to just toss, and that I wasn't really using. I get a good feeling from thinking I'm helping someone.

  • I would rather donate it and be done.
