Its pointless dumping it and not cost effective to drag it all home again after a car boot sale.

Have to say the US tradition of yard sales really is a sensible idea. Not that they do it with any sense of not wanting to waste, I'm sure they get rid of stuff just to create space to go out and buy more stuff.

I'm sure its not healthy to have so much crap everywhere. I did need a hole punch the other day, but the chances of finding it in all these boxes is small to none. Easier to go buy another one :)

You'd be surprised what people are happy to come and collect and I really find it painful to contemplate throwing away something if someone else can use it.

I've got rid of loads of old paint of different colours in half empty tins. I thought it would have to be trashed but some bloke picked it up and was going to mix it all together and use as an undercoat in a cellar.

Probably a pyschopath preparing a dungeon for his next victim.

I was going to ask if his surname was west. Half the stuff under the trampoline is diy related and totally worthless. Quite loathe to throw away nails and screws though.

Too late i've sold the bastard on ebay. Not for 7 and a half grand though sadly. 'Couple of small marks on one of the seats' should now read 'couple of small marks on one of the seats and a big feck off damp smear stain on the other one, smelling slightly iffy'.

Then you would have enjoyed the graffiti writ large on a wall opposite my office on busy High Holborn that was there for years: "The royals are boils on the bum of the nation."

That 'Rooney penalty kick' and/or pause some people do at the bottom of escalators to fit neatly onto a step: presumably to prevent their legs from being brutally scythed in half, or something.

I just don't get why normal folk give a shit about them, let alone defend the idea of a monarchy in 2015.

Marketing emails.
Especially those that make it sound like I know who is sending them, or that we have been communicating for a while.
