|Pottery Barn trash find|
acquired from one of my greatest sources; my favorite neighbor who throws away perfectly good stuff. I've blogged about them in the past. These folks have left baby high chairs, strollers, lamps and baby bouncy seats all out at the curb. I've turned each one of their trash dumps into cash! Once again, the neighbor came through for me with this Pottery Barn playhouse. These things sell for over $200 new! This particular one had some cosmetic issues, specifically some rips in the fabric doors. When I spotted it at the curb, I marched right over and grabbed it, carrying it back to my garage. I'll admit picking my neighbor's trash is a weird situation. While there's nothing wrong with it, I'd rather not advertise it on the street. In this case, once I rescued the tent from the trash, I carefully hide it from my neighbor's view behind the big gym lockers. I took some quick photos of the tent and immediately posted it for sale on Craigslist. A few weeks later, I sold it for $35 bucks-a deal for the buyer when compared to what the tent sells for new. My only concern with

So the garage is looking cleaner and cleaner with each passing week. There's a few odds and ends still on Mrs. Dude's side of the garage, but nothing I can't get sold or just haul down to the basement. How's your sales going? Got anything in the garage you need to get rid of before winter sets in? Share your story in the comment section below...
