As the classic song teaches us ‘the best things in life are free’ and given the currently economic climate that has never been so true.
But did you know that people actually go to the effort of listing things over on Gumtree that they are happy to give away entirely for free? No. Us either. From TVs to sofas and beauty treatments it’s all on there ready for you to get your mits on in exchange for no cash at all.
Here’s the best things listed for free on Gumtree this week…
A three seater settee: Perfect for anyone who’s just moved into a new place and can’t afford to splash out on new furniture. It’s a nice red hue and is free to anyone willing to pick it up from Barkingside.
Glass top table bar: Can’t afford to keep drinking out at posh cocktail bars? Fear not because this swanky glass top bar could be easily slotted into your kitchen or living room giving it a feel that you’re in an upmarket London bar. You can collect it from near Warren Street station according to the ad.
Feng Shui compass: Probably just what you’ve always wanted but never knew how to find, a Feng Shui compass. Ensure that your living space is arranged to maximise calm in your home using this nifty tool. All for free.
177 issues of Q Magazine: If you’re a big music fan you can get hold of issues 1 through to 177 of Q Magazine from a seller on Gumtree. Not only will it be rather cool to look back at what the magazine used to be like but they’re also probably worth a bob or two.
A piano: It’s not often you’ll be able to get your hands on a traditional upright piano for free so this is one to be taken advantage of if you like playing the instrument. Apparently it could do with a bit of work but nothing too complicated or anything that should put you off.
Household goods: One seller is giving away a Henry Hoover, a set of wine glasses and a dish dryer totally for free. Why? We’re not sure but again if you’re in the process of moving home these could be a good find.
