Top Three Reasons to Fill Your House For Free with Streetbank
Tonight, Streetbank is appearing on Channel 4's second series of Fill Your House For Free with Kirstie Allsopp – what better excuse could there be than that to select our top three reasons to fill your house for free with Streetbank?!
1. Money: most obviously, getting things for free and borrowing tools saves you money so that you can save for the more important things. The average exchange on Streetbank saves members £30 each time – that’s money that can be much better spent on everything from the essentials to good food and trips out. See how members in Southhampton saved in this short BBC report.
2. Clear the clutter and get green at the same time: no one likes throwing something away that they know could be put to good use by someone else. In a world full of stuff, it’s great to know that there’s a way we can clear the clutter without adding our stuff to landfill. One man (and woman)’s junk is another’s treasure after all…
3. Most importantly, it’s all about neighbours: the Australian soaps aren’t wrong, neighbours do become good friends (cue Neighbours theme tune), especially if you can lend them tools and give them things you no longer need – and vice versa! That’s what Streetbank’s all about, sharing things locally and building community spirit in the process.
So there we have it, three brilliant reasons to fill your house for free with Streetbank – it’s also free to sign up to Streetbank and you’ll never be charged to use the site.
We’re creating a network of generosity where people share because they want to – if you’d like to be part of that, you can sign up to Streetbank right here.
