Honestly? It wouldn't bother me at all. The clothes are no longer needed by people who want to see them go to a good home and not end up in landfill. If I left a bag of clothes next to a charity drop outside a supermarket and saw someone going through them and taking some for their kids, I'd be very happy.
Chairty shops often overcharge. They are no longer the place to go for people who are short of money. So if you are skint and need some free clothes for your children, I see nothing wrong in it.
I have friends who get furious that people help themselves to stuff they've dumped in a skip. Never understood that either. How can you claim someone is stealing something from you if you have thrown it away?

If there are things all over the floor I don’t see the problem we are in in desperate times

Laughing at the PP who mentioned that some people moan about people 'stealing' stuff from their skip!! How mental is that 😆
If anyone ever sees anything they fancy sitting in a skip outside my house please help yourself! And I'd do the same, and I'm not even particularly hard up. There said it! 😆
