Back in 2017, I needed to move to make room for gentrification. So I put out a bunch of my stuff that I didn’t want to take to my new home. I started the process around three months before I had to move.
Initially, I sold stuff on Ebay and Craigslist. Then, as the items became fewer, I just gave them away.
I advertised this on Craigslist, but the main way I got rid of stuff was by posting a sign in the front that said “Free Stuff on Porch”. I also had it in Spanish, “Cosas Gratis”.
Most, but not all, of the stuff was taken.
I ended up taking some of my own stuff, as well, after the move.
Later, someone broke into the house and made a big mess of the area, dumping more stuff from elsewhere onto the porch.
