My trash find

Look what I pulled from my neighbor's trash!

They're child size chairs. They'll be fun to use in pictures too.

Will have to come back to see new threads later, need to get Natalie down for her nap (she's running around naked), and Jack some lunch (he's crying because I left him on his little blanket to post this)

Wow, why didn't your neighbor come over and ask you if you wanted them first!!! LOL Those are cool! My MIL's neighbors were giving everything to her for Tyler!

I don't know this particular neighbor (couple of houses down on the other side of the street), but I really think they should have given it to someone instead of the trash ...

I'd like to paint them but don't have that kind of time. Will leave them as is for now.

Have these people never heard of Freecycle? I tell everyone I know about that. I love that site.

Last year Dh pulled an older fashioned wooden school desk out off of the curb. It will be awesome since we are going to homeschool

Its amazing to me what people think is "trash" I just will never get it! Belive me what I throw away NEEDS to be thrown away Lol Half the time Im tempted to save DH's old t-shirts, socks, and underwear to use as rags...then I think twice about that Wink

GREAT chairs!! I think white would be cute!

I've been tempted to put flyers in mailboxes about it. I'm so sick of seeing people in my neighborhood through away perfectly good stuff!

I sometimes feel badly about asking for stuff, and then I remember how much I've given away and I don't feel so bad asking.
