Okay
Confess..........

Who has benefited from people having clear outs.  I will begin with my 'finds'..........

A perfect lamp
A wooden stool about a foot high.  Perfect for me as I am challenged height wise.
2 Flower pots
A plastic shopping basket.  Great for carrying multiple items up the stairs.
A metal shoe rack.
All these things in almost perfect condition.  I have also seen computers, fridges, furniture, books, DVD's etc.  All with a 'help yourself' notice.

The first thing I put out was some fruit I knew was not going to get eaten (I can only eat so much) and my elderly neighbour took it.  I now buy her fruit.  (To keep her 'regular' as she says).

I have got rid of about 40 DVD's and today I am putting out a dinner service.  We have 3 and this set hasn't been used for about 10 years.  Would normally take it to charity shop but they are still closed.

I feel chuffed with my finds as I am using all of them.  What have you found ?
