Is There a Dedicated Thread For Giving Away Free Stuff.....
« on: March 24, 2021, 09:21:50 AM »
.....similar to FreeBay (Lakewood) and/or posting requests for free stuff?
If not, is it against the forum rules if I make one?
Thanks.

(For those of you who aren't Lakewood residents, "FreeBay" is a feature of a local circular in which you can list...)
I no longer have constant Internet access, so you won't be seeing quite as much of me.

If it's something local that's only relevant to Lakewood residents you may have more success in the Lakewood Master Thread as I assume Lakewood people have notifications on for that thread or at least check in there.

If you’re really looking to get rid of something, I highly recommend the WhatsApp status “Yad Shniya”
My wife has posted many items,
 the items that were posted for free were gone in seconds
The one item we sold, took a few hrs

No, not Lakewood only.
My idea was for each post in the new thread to note the location.

Thank you for the idea but some of us aren't on WhatsApp.

Hmm...didn't see that.
Though my idea was for it to be more organized and also for seeking items not just giving items.

Well, I felt we could use a clear & organized thread with rules.
