The starter died in our Jeep last week. Not the best timing, since this is our busy season. But, my husband finished installing a new starter this morning, and we decided to celebrate by taking it curb shopping. So, glad we did because we had an insane haul. You’re not going to believe what we brought home.
This big pile of landscaping rocks was our first find of the morning. We got plenty of exercise loading and unloading it, but then, so did whoever paid for all those rocks to begin with. Now I just need to decide where I want to use them in my garden.
This composter was waiting for us in another curb pile. I just checked online, and this model currently sells for $150! This is the third composter that we’ve rescued from a curb pile. That’s $450 worth of free composters!
My husband spotted this 10′ x 10′ pop up canopy tent buried in a pile. The cover is in great shape, but one of the legs is in need of repair. He’s already figured out how he’s going to fix it. We use one of these when we build our carpenter bee traps. It’ll be nice to have a second one. This particular model currently sells for $80.
And we picked up this washers game, too. We picked up another set one time, but it wasn’t complete. This one is.
Pretty good haul, don’t you think? Maybe we’ll have to go on another celebratory curb run when we get our riding mower fixed.
Have you found anything good in curb piles lately? I’d love to hear about it.
