Cheap As Free


I got some free shopping in this afternoon. My neighbor moved out yesterday and she decided to get rid of all this stuff in the dumpster. It would have been more comfortable going to the store, but I really couldn't pass up the price. The containers below were the first thing to catch my eye as we drove past the overflowing pile last night and I then determined to see what other goodies would lay in store.

The whole list turned out to be:
Glass containers
Unopened christmas paper ( I am planning to do metallics next year too!)
2 Birthday bags 
Party Decorations
Green comforter
Evergreen comforter
Shelf with hook
Toy Castle
Child's computer
Metal organizer
Mini food processor
Phonics program
Pop-out playhouse
Computer cables

Don't be ashamed to dumpster-dive. It will probably be worth it.

I love the multi-colored quilt... :) I never guessed that "dumpster diving" could produce such cool results! :D

Very cute stuff! It's too bad your neighbor didn't call someplace to pick it up for donation and instead tossed out all that perfectly good stuff - how wasteful! But good for you that you saved it from a lifetime in the landfill!
