Waiting for me to clean it up!
The other evening while out walking I noticed a white plastic shelf stationed near a trash bin. There were people working inside the house (the door was wide open and all the lights on) so I knocked on the door and asked for permission to take it home.
Since the shelf had been left behind by the previous tenants the guys seemed glad to have it gone.
It isn’t in perfect shape but it will be a lot better than the milk crates that are currently pulling bookshelf duty.
For just a little bit of time and elbow grease I have been able to make yet another improvement in my living situation while saving yet another item from the local landfill.
Have you ever salvaged anything from the trash? Please share your stories in the comments below.
