Started by students from the National University of Singapore, Thryft is a second-hand online bookstore where you can trade in old books for credits to purchase other books on its marketplace. If your shelf requires you to free up over 20 books, you can trade in or donate em' hardcovers and paperbacks with Thryft. However, they have to be in good condition, which means no water damage, no broken or torn spine, and no missing or torn pages, as they will be finding their second (or third) home. All you have to do is snap a photo of the books for Thryft, and it'll come to collect.
Whether you were inspired by Marie Kondo or just giving your home a thorough spring cleaning, tidying up your home results in finding plenty of things to get rid of. Most of the time, it surprises us how many things go unused. So if you find something still in good condition that you have no need for any more, put it in a giveaway pile for someone else. Here are some places in Singapore where you can drop off your items and in turn spark joy in someone else's life.
