At last – another long bank holiday weekend! Whether you’re working full-time, do freelance work or have got your hands full enough with the kids, give yourselves a pat on the back, you truly deserve this May Day off.

However, if you’re spending this weekend at home some of us will be faced with an unpleasant truth – we have way too much stuff.

You might be especially aware of this if you’re a parent. Our kids’ stuff is everywhere… and they grow so fast you can barely keep up! Moreover, we perpetuate the chaos by holding on to our children’s outgrown playsuits, cots and Little Tike cars. Let’s be honest – your kid no longer needs these items you’ve accumulated over the years, and neither do you.

It’s time for a spring clean and we want to help you make it a success! 

Because while you may need to free up space, another young family might be looking to buy exactly those items you’re selling. Being a parent is expensive – so offering your sometimes barely used baby paraphernalia on Gumtree may be making another mum or dad’s day!

We want to support you in finding a grateful, new home for your little ones’ old toys, high chairs and first bikes. Therefore we will bump your ad up for free this bank holiday weekend!

Here’s how it works:

  • List your item on between 4:00pm on Wednesday the 24th of May and 4:00pm on Thursday the 1st of June
  • Share your item via Twitter and add the hashtag #BabyBumpUp
  • Receive a bump for free!
