    Dude, how is your comment helpful or relevant? The OP has decided to sell, and has a buyer.

    Maybe the $15 is worth it to someone? Like the op. So yeah sometimes it is worth the hassle.

    Just saying the amount of time she has spent working out what to do, worrying about all these different scenarios and writing/reading a thread it just doesn't seem worth the hassle when you can donate to someone in need.

    She wrote that it's only $15 if she gets ripped off she wouldn't get ripped off hugely at the end of the day and the money wasn't the issue more about telling people she will be out all day

    Maybe finding a charity to donate to and dropping it off there is more of a hassle than leaving something at your front door for someone to collect.

    Not true. They have taken most of them from my area. The closest is at a train station that is about 15 mins away - but we don't drive that way much.

    I have bags I was going to drop off but now am going to try gumtree first.

    As for the OP - I could not do a 'won't be home' pickup.

    I live in a good neighbourhood with great neighbours but I could not trust a random Gumtree person.

    I've done it on my local BSS Facebook group and never had any problems, but we are in a small community so it's less of a 'stranger danger' type situation. I don't know that I'd do it on Gumtree...

    As the others have said, it's easier for me to have someone come pick it up from me. We have one charity bin in my suburb and it is always overflowing and I'm not going to just put it next to the bin as it's all in pristine condition and don't want it to get ruined. It's probably $50 worth of clothing.
