I live in the Country here to and there is really not much stuff that is thrown out that is good or can be used again!!
I do however look around for goods when I can find them!!



I love saving money the frugal way!!

Update after I posted this post a house in my subdivision was being cleared out so they can sell it!!
Well in the process of them cleaning it out I was able to get
my Daughter a Child Recliner that looks almost brand new!!
I was able to get a Plastic Bench that people can sit on for my yard!!
I was able to get potting soil for my plants and I was able to get a sit spin for my daughter!!
I am also able to get Four- Six fold up chairs for my family to have and to use for our kitchen chairs!!
I think this is great find for me!!

Exclamation Roadside Treasures

I picked my kids up from school today and on the way home I saw this beautiful old wicker trunk sitting at the edge of a yard. The woman who lived there was out working in her yard. I stopped and asked if she were tossing it out. She said "Yes!!Take it...it might have junk in it". NO problem!! My ds (9) helped me squeeze it into my little geo and off we went. I put it on the front porch...now I have a little more storage and a place to sit drinks. It's just what I wanted! Inside, she had left a little trash...a broken planter, a paper windsock.....but also a full yankee-type candle in my favorite scent..vanilla! I cleaned it up. It was even the right color for my living room!! It's been a good day.

My first thought was: I HAVE to tell the ladies at FamilyCorner. LOL Anyone else have roadside treasures to brag about???

Whew.....thought I was losing my mind for a moment ( which is very possible !!). I went back to check your post and it was gone ! Then I thought maybe I got mixed up as to which post I was replying to. LOL !!

That chit chat place is a hard thing to figure out ! I never know whether to post something there or not. Heck, my stuff gets moved around a lot but I hunt until I find it.

Still a great find for you !!! Wish me luck in the morning !


Tami

You are quite Welcome! I didn't intend to confuse anyone just trying to keep the boards flowing and keep everything together. If anyone ever has any questions about where to post something just ask one of the Idea Exchange Moderators! Keep Posting Ladies!
