Just because it's cheap or free does not mean I need it

My DP does this all the time just because it's cheap or free does not mean I need it, honestly I'm sick of him buying/acquiring shit that I don't want or need but hey it was cheap it might come in handy......AIBU?

YANBU. My dh is addicted to freecycle. Always asking me if I want a free exercise bike/patio set/fence panel. He's hooked!
However to give him credit, yesterday he was working with an elderly patient who had swollen ankles and needed a recliner
He hopped on freecycle, found a reclining lawn chair just around the corner from her house, rang them up and they brought it straight round.
I'm realising sometimes its a good thing (when it's for other people)

Yes, I hate this. I used to go on days out with a friend , art gallery or something . She would always take any free leaflets available- local walks, gardens, art exhibitions, new cafes etc - when you plan to visit somewhere research what's on, do t pass me stuff I will bin (recycle) as soon as home

My parent's back garden is filled with crap because my dad insists on collecting things and refuses to get rid of anything. They had an extension put on to the house and he wouldn't get rid of the old slabs that used to be on the side of the house in case they came in useful
