Givmo – Ever tried to sell your unwanted stuff – or buy someone else’s on eBay or Craigslist? Ever given up because it’s too much hassle (or in Craigslist’s case, just a little bit shady!)? Ever wondered if there’s a free marketplace online where you could give away your old things and get second-hand things you want without haggling, bidding or paying hidden fees? Well de-cluttering your home no longer means a choice between Craigslist and a trip down to the landfill… You’ve now got Givmo to send your stuff to people who want it, and it’s free, easy, charitable and eco-friendly!
Givmo takes the online marketplace idea of getting rid of what you want, and finding stuff you do. But it’s not about making money. It’s not about meeting a shady figure on a street corner and selling them your Mickey Mantle baseball card. Nope, Givmo is all about free giving and getting. You list items you don’t want anymore (for free), and when someone decides they want it, Givmo sends you a prepaid shipping label, and you simply post that item to its new home. No fees, no bidding, no haggling. If you want to get rid of something, you can send it away easily. If you see something you want, just notify the ‘Giver’ with the ‘I want it’ button, pay for shipping and its yours! And you even get some good karma, since Givmo gives $1 to charity for every item given 🙂
Definitely worth a look, click here or on the pics to get your spring clean on!
