I honestly don't have the patience for selling things. I either trash them or give them away.

Nope today's moving day I either sold it or I donated to a woman I personally know who runs a domestic abuse shelter.

The only time i share that information is when im asking for a little bit of leeway from my professors if ive fallen behind in a course. I don't ask for freebies. And, in my experience, those that do mayyyy not be telling the truth. I give what I can, I don't mind giving things to someone that needs it, rather than selling, but i do not like when SN children are used as leverage. Kwim?

I've never asked for anything to be given to me or my kids for free or discounted. Have people given me things? Yes and I'm always very greatful simi embarrassed and I always pay forward to others that need something I have that I don't need.
I think its wrong to use your children to get things. If the child needs something very important for life like a breathing machine or a wheel chair then I can see asking a company or a community service or maybe family and close friends but not a stranger trying to sell things.

I would continue to try and get someone to buy everything. If it's getting close to moving day and something hasn't sold, then maybe give to them for free. I would try my best to get money first to help you out.

I think some of those people may not be telling the truth. People will say anything to get stuff for free. Could be the owner of a thrift store. Who knows.

I would rather just give it to someone who needed it times are hard and garage sales don't do as good as they used to .
