Money for nothing
Watching today 9th april. Beautiful sofa and old blankets rescued. Why do people take such lovely stuff to a dump . Why not a charity shop or a homeless charity. Failing that those blankets could have went to an animal refuge. Dumps should be monitored i reckon....

Bench
As the voice over said it looks like two stools with a plank of wood on top!

I've got
an old teddy bear with one arm and one leg, no eyes, torn off ears, bald patches and half the stuffing missing. Can you turn it into a bag or maybe another bear? You could charge me a pony and sell it on for a monkey There is bound to be someone daft enough to buy it!

Crap.
I have an old toilet I need to get rid of, can you put this programme in it please
Looky. 10:52am Sun 25 Mar
 
   
Facinating
I enjoy it even though some of the stuff I wouldn’t keep in the shed, there are good ideas though,I am all for recycling where possible,I have seen some lovely things thrown in the skip

The Old Boy
That stupid Old Boy who drones on and thinks he is so funny, NOT get him an allotment and shed, no wonder no one wants to get old, they thinks you have to get stupid

Not a bright spark(y)
Who in their right mind starts a business upcycling items into light fittings when not a qualified electriction and then pays for an electrictian to test them adding 60 quid to the price!?

Money for crap
This show is the most stupid. I am a fully qualified and furniture restorer and Upholsterer. I have been awarded The C&G gold medal for Excellence. I am also a lecturer in the subject. I have watched the program many times and can't believe what crap people are getting away with. Outrageous prices which don't make sense. If I charged a customer £750 to upholster an armchair I would be out of work, let alone sell it for over £1000. It is fixed all items are also sold to the same people,really. Fix fix fixed show.

Trashy Show
Unbelievably condescending and patronising show. Watch this if you want to turn crap into worse crap then laugh when some fool pays a fortune for it. Plumbing the depths.

Dear Programme Producers
Costs are now ridiculous and well beyond the average recycler! Also Get rid of Jay - he is useless and talentless and incredibly irritating.
Hoogachagga 7:53pm Sun 17 Dec
 
   
Buy goods
SB - Most programmes give the name of the shop that buys the items. They can then be usually found on Google.
Neo 7:56pm Tue 7 Nov
 
   
not sold
-please could we have updates on items not sold in later programs,

Reality check
Don’t give the false profit back to the numpty that threw it away, give it to Children in Need
Rincewind 4:02pm Thu 2 Nov
 
   
Extortionate
The cost of coverting the stuff is absolutely mad. Even Sarah said she must be bonkers to agree to it. She said it!
reuben 5:15pm Tue 31 Oct
 
   
what crap
What a stupid show, most of the items should have been left at the skip
confused 5:12pm Mon 30 Oct
 
   
Bed
Can't imagine who would buy that hideous child's bed. For one thing it looks dangerous.
reuben 4:30pm Mon 30 Oct
 
   
Sail bags
Two awful looking bags that sold for £325, really?
helly 6:10am Tue 24 Oct
 
   
how do you buy the goods
how do you buy what they have made please
sb 12:25am Wed 18 Oct
 
   
Today's show
Who would pay a few hundred pounds for 2 bar stools that were covered to make them look retro - seen similar ones go for under £50. They should disclose the breakdown costs in more detail(what about travel time, fuel). That restored chair - who would pay over £100 for 'out of popular' furniture!
taffy 4:34pm Thu 21 Sep
 
   
Oh how I cant stand
Arthur Smith's commentary. Drone voice and pathetic content - awful awful awful!!!
Flipflop 3:44pm Fri 15 Sep
 
   
Amazing
I wish Sarah could find another adjective than amazing.
Neo 6:46pm Thu 24 Aug
 
   
Lamp
made out of a petrol can looks like.......a petrol can! The wooden table looks like........a wooden table with red paint splodged over it! The chair looks ..........covered in some old curtain. Certainly money for nothing!.

I saw you coming
Harry Enfield was there first
Cynic 4:02pm Fri 21 Jul
 
   
all inclusive?
There's 138 miles from the tip to Wolverhampton, plus the cost of the van rental. Is this included in the cost? Why didn't they use the Walsall tip, its only down the road.
observant . 3:55pm Sat 1 Jul
 
   
giraffe?
£150 For painting two chairs. Are you having a giraffe? Legalised robbery.
bluebird. 2:52pm Tue 23 May
 
   
Complete and utter Crap
Pathetic show with bearded morons posing as craftsmen egged on by stereotypical Chelsea horror supplying them with garbage - which is eventually sold on to idiots with more money than sense.
Far Corfe 1:41pm Sun 21 May
 
   
1950's Dolls House
I find it incrediable that someone would take to the tip a complete 1950's dolls house complete with retro furniture - and a family piece to boot. Some of the stuff is wonderful and some isn't. I enjoy watching it.
anniegetyourgun 9:26pm Thu 11 May
 
   
same again,Oh, purleeze !
Anthony upholsters,Again! smithers of Stamford buys it. Again! A pattern forming here.
sofa. so bad. 4:39pm Mon 1 May
 
   
There are other words!
Like the programme but if I hear 'amazing' once more I shall scream.
Neo 4:42pm Sun 30 Apr
 
   
free plug.
More like money for old rope. Funny it's always the same people that buy the stuff. Perhaps it's to give their business a free plug. The profits should be given to charity.
sofa so good. 8:31pm Thu 27 Apr
 
   
Brilliant show.
It's a fun concept and OK you might not buy the stuff yourself, but I have watched every show and find it fascinatins.

Crap for crap
Watched a show - what is this crap program about. Oh its for arty farty by the arty farty. The presenter is so arty farty. Could not operate a simple sewing machine yet she is supposed to be some 'Expert' Yeah expert in conning folk with more money than sense to see thro the crap she gets made
Chips for Free 4:07pm Mon 17 Apr
 
   
Fabulous
Some of the pieces are absolutely fabulous and I would like to buy some of the more expensive unsold pieces. I do some renovations myself ..... for myself and family and friends, not commercially so this programme is great for giving ideas on what could be done. Thank you .
Chilled out baby 7:38pm Sat 15 Apr
 
   
Fascinating
Interesting programme involving members of the public and designers/crafts people who do clever things with objects destined for the 'tip'.
CreativeJan 6:18pm Fri 14 Apr
 
   
Unbelievable Tat
Are the public supposed to believe this? Absolute crap, no one actually buys this stuff, made up to make the program interesting, lets face it no one would watch if it was No money for nothing
Tish 4:16pm Fri 14 Apr
 
   
BBC scraping the barrel
This is a terrible programme made on the cheap. Whilst some may say what they do is art, personally I think it's tat. Who would pay these prices? This is why people think the arts are a joke, whilst real artists spend a lot of time honing their craft to produce something beautiful and thought provoking. Wont be watching again
Glazed Barry 4:32pm Wed 12 Apr
 
   
Lost its charm
Programme no longer believable or creditable. Are we to believe people pay high prices for such ugly stuff even if quite well crafted? And thumbs down to anyone who does not give their profit (BBC cash by the way) to charity
Oliveoyl 4:49pm Tue 11 Apr
 
   
Arty Farty
What a crap show, it show how gullible some rich folk are, cause its been worked on by 2 arty farty guys to convert some old wood worth 10 quid into a desk and a stool with a different leg to the other three and then sold to some stupid guy for £699.
the real world man 4:41pm Tue 11 Apr
 
   
Bizarre
The shop owner said she would add a mirror to the dressing table to dress it up. Sarah had discarded the original which was in good nick......funny that!
georgie 12:29pm Mon 10 Apr
 
   
What 3 people 1 coffee ta
Cant believe it took 3 people to mend and repaint a old coffee table no wonder it cost £165 to repair when 1 man could have done this or a monkey
Bea Parratt 7:55am Mon 10 Apr
 
   
Language
Liking the new series but Sarah please note - the plural of octopus is octopuses not octopi.
Neo 7:39pm Fri 7 Apr
 
   
Craftsmen??????
The two lads Josh and Olli are clueless they be lost without all the technology even their mitre saw is computer controlled. They hadn't a clue how to cut the oak into planks and the sideboard was atrocious they used very little of the oak and what they use they did nothing to.
Tonyf 10:10pm Thu 30 Mar
 
   
Money for a lot...
How is it money for nothing when Sarah spends hundreds of pounds for some 'hipster craftsman' to convert a piece of old furniture into some crappy piece of furniture? Has noone noticed she may get the old piece of furniture from a skip in Altrincham but then she takes it to Bristol or South London or West Sussex to be worked on? No mention of transport costs here... Clearly not for the average person to be able to simply clean up a piece of old furniture and sell it for a decent amount of money.
Sazzle 4:07pm Thu 30 Mar
 
   
Where are these mugs?
How I'd love to find all these people who have more money than sense that will pay a fortune for these cobbled together items. It would be cheaper to build a new piece of furniture from scratch and it would look better too. This show is for the rich and stupid not the ordinary folk.
Pixikins 11:54am Tue 28 Mar
 
   
Where is Sarah?
Like Jay, but where is Sarah? Is she ok? Does any one know?
IseeTV 6:41pm Thu 23 Mar
 
   
Returns
Why do we never see on a later programme the things unsold at time of programme When sold going back to the people Sarah got them from and showing us the profit made hand over
maggie 4:36pm Sun 12 Feb
 
   
love it
Love the voice over, love Sara, some designs are crap and noting to do with real world, but still a great idea too use brain before throwing usable stuff away!
Eden 1:53am Sun 8 Jan
 
   
Sheesh!!!!
Cannot believe that angle iron and rotten wood sideboard sold for over £500 , there must be some very stupid people down South , or is it a case of the King is in the all together .
Stevey B 4:20pm Mon 2 Jan
 
   
Cool!
I get fed up with the amount of times she says "cool". Sounds so silly and false.
