20120526 - yard sale booty - 0 - full haul ($9) - IMG_4261

This week was not as big of a haul as last week. Last week's was the motherload.


We still got some good stuff, though. The shoji screen (free) was used as background during skype interview, as well as to block sunlight (or computer light) during naps, or to hide shelves of stuff you don't want seen. Given that it was free, we've already gotten our money's worth 50X over. We can guiltlessly toss this into our yard when we're done, because it's all natural materials: bambo, twine, paper.


The guitar case is the best quality one we've ever owned.


The $2 sleeping bag is redundant, but we'll throw it in the trunk of a car in case we get stranded somewhere cold.


The metal tins were also free, and are being used to store all the diatomaceous earth we have.


Heineken mirror, folding partition, guitar case, metal tins, shoji screen, sleeping bag, wooden box.
