We drove to the Adirondack Mountains today. On our way past a neighbor, my husband noticed roller blade wheels sticking out of a 5 gallon bucket with a "FREE" sign on it. After we passed, he thought that he should have picked them up because he could probably use the wheels for something. After our day out, they were still there. He picked them up and discovered there were also a set of knee and wrist pads in the bucket. These are in great shape and he decided that maybe I should sell them instead! I will update this post later if we do sell.
Through the years we have acquired many things for free. The types of things we have found include tools, furniture, clothes, toys, decor, collectibles, construction materials and much more. The sources for these free things have included friends, family, roadsides, exploring old farms, freecycle websites, clean-out jobs, retail promotions and chance. Although there are probably hundreds of items we have acquired over the years, I will only be able to share a fraction of the things we already have. I will be sure to document all future finds.
