    Tesco have got an offer on- 3 crates for £18. I reckon if you buy enough you could make your furniture and be ready to see in Christmas and the new year

    Who needs a house or an appartment when you have the Snail shell System or similar? :P

    Re: Looking for a sleek corner shelf

    Mattress company just called to confirm I'm not commiting fraud as I was having it delivered to somewhere that wasn't the billing address so I will have a mattress tomorrow... no bed, but hey, I've been waiting to move for over a year now (I'll put up a tent inside if I need to!)

    Tonight I think a trip to Tesco is gonna be the plan - 3 for £18 is cheaper by volume than a sofa from DFS and if I get completely mashed then I won't mind how comfy it is...

    Perfect

    (DFS did give me free wine on Sunday... that's no way to make me commit to something to sit on... I need a reason to come back godammit!)

    PS. Love the microdwellings - why didn't someone show me these earlier in the year!?!? Then I wouldn't have had to put up with my little sister again!

    Gwendes, do you have a local Freecycle Yahoo Group. If so, put some WANTED posts in. I've just done it for some VHS Players for school. I'll be surprised if I don't get any.

    Re: Looking for a sleek corner shelf

    We do- I used to be on it but got annoyed with getting so many messages. It's a good suggestion but for the moment I think we'll just wait until we find items of furniture we can agree on...

    There are some things that it'd be better to just have two of, aren't there? At least I have a garage space for my projects and toys

    Re: Looking for a sleek corner shelf

    I have 'calculated' that I'll only need between 18 and 21 crates to build myself a sofa and for a small additional investment I could construct a proper 'admin fort'...

    donations accepted

    *wanders off to make PayPal button*

    LOL

    Don't forget you'll need two crates stacked length ways to make a sort of table so that you can put your picture of Bruce and your freshly arranged flowers!

    Re: Looking for a sleek corner shelf

    I reckon I'd get something from x beer brand if I sent them a photo of a three peice suite of crates! Really tempted now - seriously - anyone wanna donate?

    My friend wrote a poem on her blog about RedBull - I sent them an email and we received a crate of 24 cans each... Cheap advertising you see - like I'm telling you lot now!

    <subliminal>BUY REDBULL!</subliminal>

    Re: Looking for a sleek corner shelf

    Re Freecycle; I use Outlook to direct all the posts to a separate folder and so if I don't have the time to look at them I just delete the lot and it doesn't interfere with my normal emails.
    Freecycle is great though - and as I have said before - I get rid of old kit (yes, even monitors) on it quite regularly, as well as picking up useful stuff for home and work (including a VHS recorder!)

    And I am a tech and I care about soap and shampoo!!

    You can set Freecycle to email a summary. I get two or three a day listing all the latest offerings. It's in the profiles.
