Praise freebies and curb shopping!

Since my college days, whenever I see furniture thrown out I slow down to see if it's useful to me. This was partly how I furnished my first apartment!

Now, I live in a college town and those students throw out EVERYTHING!

This weekend I got a major haul, I wasn't even thinking about it and I saw a bunch of students moving out of a home. They threw loads of good things on the curb!

I got:

A practically new mountain bike
64 key Casio keyboard with adapter
A steam carpet cleaner
and two bar stools I can use on my patio!

Have you ever gotten things this way and if so, what?

I swear, I thought you said "curb stomping".

I live near the dorms and you would not believe the stuff I've gotten free on Move-Out day. Several lamps, a set of actual wood drawers, a couple chairs, and some shelves.
