You will get this opportunity TWICE a day so get excited to have two chances at free food a day!

  • Gumtree & Facebook Marketplace

Searching for pre-loved goods that you might need in your home is a great way save some money. If you like an item someone is selling in your area, make sure you ask lots of questions about the item and ask to inspect the item if you have time. This way you can ensure you are getting the best quality for a pre-owned item.

  • Airtasker
