    This week I found 3 items being put to the curb that I can definitely use in my room. Neighbor was bringing out 2 bookcases from her home she no longer needed and another neighbor was throwing out a wooden toy chest that I will use as a bench in my carpet area or library. I'll just add a comfy pad to the top. Has anyone else found "treasures" in the trash?

    Last year as dh and I were doing our morning walk, we found a lamp at a trash curb that went perfect with my class theme. It needed a bulb and that was it!

    A Trash to Treasure horror story:
    One of the teachers at a school I taught at found an over stuffed chair at the curb and brought it into her classroom to use in her reading center ....... it had bedbugs! :eek:
