Dumpster Diving - well not really

Okay, so no, I didn't technically dumpster dive for this cute stool, but it was in someone's pile of garbage on the side of the road. I always keep my eye out for furniture or bigger items on the side of the road, just in case. So when I saw a stool, I had to stop and check it out. It's in perfect condition, it was just a little dusty. It's a little tall for our two boys right now, but I know in time it will work perfect with a desk. For now it's another piece of furniture that the boys can crawl all over.

Who said nothing in life is free?


  1. Congrats on the stool!

    I own several dumpster dive items. One of them is my ironing board. I just bought a new cover for it when I literally took it out of the dumpster at our old apartment.

    The second thing is amazing -- it's a four drawer, office style, filing cabinet. It's like those huge ones you see in medical offices where they use legal size folders. All of the drawers work perfectly. I looked it up and that item, even used, costs around $500. Amazing.

  2. That's awesome! I also love to see how much my dumpster dive items cost at retail stores.
