Better than cheap
is FREE!! It is bulk trash season here - in a neighboring town this week and in my town next week. Mom and I went "junking" this afternoon. We get a lot of garden junk that way and found some today. We went down 2 out of the way streets. On one a couple were putting out a twin wooden bookcase headboard (passed on that) but did take a white Christmas tree and an end stand for the living room (complete with magazine rack), 2 Christmas wreaths and a drying rack. The stuff was so nice I waited until the couple came out and asked if they were really throwing it away.
Down another street and found a queen size green fancy wrought iron headboard and footboard which I need. That about filled the van so we headed home. We saw a man with a truck and trailer with about 50 bicycles on it and another truck with a big wicker star and reindeer - darn. Well that was fun and I can't wait to go next week (my town has different streets putting out "trash" every day). Kathy_PA
