It's not uncommon to see items on a New York curb with a “free” sign attached, which is a green light for it to be taken. The item can be as big as a couch, or as small as a book. That’s the phenomenon behind the Instagram page @StoopingNYC. The community of more than 150,000 people are constantly checking the page, looking for the next addition to their home. And @StooberNYC is the service to help you get the “stooped” item into your home. Inside Edition Digital’s Stephanie Officer explains.

  • I see it as a win win

  • That was a great inside edition. I love watching inside edition. This is the first time I've seen one this long. But I went ahead and hit play and I'm glad I did one of the best inside edition little pieces I've ever seen. And what's great about it is nobody died through the whole thing nobody was murdered, nobody was assaulted nothing was stolen there was no guns involved whatsoever. It was just a clever little kind of heartwarming story. Very nice

  • This is *the* *best* !!! Recycling/re-purposing/reusing perfectly good furniture & household items that would otherwise end up at the dump. Overall, everyone benefits!! My sister lives in a wealthy area but, she's very budget savvy. She has actually furnished her home with many items she found that people were throwing out. She calls it her "Curbside Collection"!! 😉

  • In Canada it's only the really rough stuff (damaged) we leave out with a sign saying free. Otherwise we either post online in the local community to see if anyone wants it or we'll sell it online on Facebook marketplace or Kijiji or we donate it to used stores like value village or salvation army. We very rarely leave stuff outside because there's a risk of weather damage.

  • Me and my family did this when we first moved to our home and couldn't get many furniture right away. Ain't no shame in this game, just be sure to ask the previous owners first to avoid any misunderstandings before they call police.

But lets face it thats probably why shes wearing it.. she knows as long as it looks like shes covering her mouth, people will usually ignore it.

  • I rarely buy new things! If it isn't on clearance, a good sale or free , I won't buy it! It's shocking to see the things people throw out! If something looks risky than I pass on it! Just make sure to sanitize everything! My neighbor threw out a perfectly good washing machine because he didn't want to change the belt! Cost me fourteen bucks to fix it! My old washer had given out and we were lucky to get this one!
