Breaking it down, free style

Otherwise known as stuff in box 1 and box 2 from last week's mega haul of free stuff


Proof that men don't listen: I brought this license plate cover to S's attention for his dad's truck.  nothing.  I make my way over to another table, and S calls to me, waving this in the air.  What do i think about it for his dad's truck.  Classic.


Anita Shreve's "The last time they met"-anyone read it?  4 window candles, 2 of which are motion sensored and 1 of which is in another box.  Think this would be fun with orange candles for H'ween.  

Obsessed with that wicker suitcase/picnic case.  What will i do with it?  For free, it came home with me.

Frame selection, hideous shaped wood item, Easter table cloth for S's mom. 

Baseball themed BBQ set, never used.  The baseballs are salt and pepper shakers.  Perfect gift for friends who will soon be having their first BBQ at their new house and coincidentally love the Phils.

Wire baskets: inspired by the pantry redo craze at House of Smiths.  Doesn't fit on my pantry shelves, how do you like that!


Well, why not?  Spray paint cans fit perfectly, but for now corralling S's crap that lives on the kitchen table. 

More to come next week.  And the week after.  And the week after.

Your free box is a never-ending treasure chest! Goodness! I love the organizing basket and the awesome license plate cover!

I've said it before but searching Craigslist for free stuff must go on the To-Do list!
