This Kindle Fire charger is one of the first things that I spotted. With two teenagers in the house, mine had mysteriously gone missing. I could have ordered another one off of Amazon for $19.99, but I decided to take advantage of Curb Mart’s deal instead. Hopefully, I can do a better job of hiding this one.

Get ready for some more progress at the cabin. This week yielded some pretty sweet curb treasure.

My husband spotted these two basement windows (turned sideways in the picture above) while he was taking the kids to school. I’m thinking they’ll work well in the bath house, if we position them at the top of the wall. They even had their screens with them. Score!

A few weeks ago my husband spotted this range hood at Habitat. It was 36-inches wide – the perfect size for our 1957 stove! When we started renovating our kitchen a few years ago, we had wiring and a vent installed for a range hood, but we hadn’t gotten around to installing one yet. We were going to build our own, but when we came across this one for $50, we knew we couldn’t build one for any less; so we snatched it up.

Dark stained wood doesn’t really fit the look of our kitchen, so we gave it a quick sanding and a new paint job.

Curb shopping is definitely something that I’m thankful for. It saves us money, and has provided us with countless hours of entertainment.

While we were on our way to pick up our oldest daughter from school yesterday, we passed a curb pile with several potted mums. I asked my husband to turn around, so I could see if they were annual or perennial mums. After reading the tags, I discovered that four out of the five were perennials. Score! I’d been meaning to pick some mums up on clearance this year, but just hadn’t gotten around to it. Looks like being busy saved me some money. I plan to plant these in the backyard. There are two yellows and two purples.
