Who pays for shipping?
The misuse of the language is gifting me a headarc.
Participants in any barter exchange should know that the IRS does require barter "income" to be reported, and gets real nasty if they find out after the fact. A few years ago when I was active on a barter exchange I did declare everything and it was a pain; but not nearly the pain it was for some people who didn't and received bills for tens of thousands of dollars of extra income. Barter exchanges in the U.S. are supposed to file forms with the IRS with each member's transaction totals. Hint: the IRS does not accept barter to pay tax bills.
I've got a "Dem-o-crat party" here, anyone give me anything for it? (I'll even pay shipping.)
Any wealthy people who do their finances on computer and don't understand the word "encryption" are asked to send their unneeded hard drives to me.
I'll give them a good home.
This really does work well ... AND you can get rid of a lot of junk... and get some pretty nifty stuff too!!
I've given some - but have gotten a Broyhill dresser that is in beautiful shape, a cool desk I'm using as a sort of buffet, various books for homeschooling, a palm tree that would be about 200.00 at the nursery... and tonight we just picked up 17 old 6 pane windows that we're going to incorporate into a greenhouse of sorts.. :)
I really like it.. my husband and son first thought it was a "hippy" thing.. I just pointed out that other peoples trash is sometimes out treasure... hahahaha.
I remember years ago I had an old, broken TV that I didn't want to put out with the trash - didn't know if it would be hauled away or not, so I put a ad in the local 'Buy and Sell' paper for a free TV.
I got about 12 calls the first few hours the paper came out. This is a real good idea.
Not really, it's one of the lousy websites I've ever been too, and you have to sign up on Yahoo to get to it...it's a joke...
They need to setup the same thing in a Vbulletin board..
I've tried the local chapter, but gave up after a few weeks because of the constant begging. Crap like, "Two free pairs of used sneakers to give away, and BTW, I so desperately need a car. Anything 1996 or newer would be most appreciated!" Or begging for a free TV (27" or larger), or similar crap. A never-ending stream of hard-luck stories begging for handouts, which is a blatant violation of what the lists are supposed to be about. Tried complaining to the mods, but no joy there so I bailed.
