My fiance and I got a 55 gallon fish tank on the next block. Literally 4 houses down on the same side of the street. It was so late at night we went to wherever we were going and told ourselves we'd take it if it was still there when we got back. It was. We put it in the back seat and threw the wood stand/ cabinet that held it on top of the car and just slowly rolled down the block . Looks and works great!

This is a funny story but to cut it short I had believed that I had accidentally thrown away a $1200 dollar check at the post office and I needed it to pay bills it was just before Xmas illegal or not I needed to find it. So after 3 days no check I was desperate.. So I decided I had no choice but to go look for my check I was surprised at what all I found!! Kroger coupon flyers pens Xmas cards unused bunches date planners unused but no check it finally appeared in my mail box the next day day my lights were to be cut off..

I dig in the recycling bins at my local recycling center. It's completely legal here so, . I find all types of stuff. MCR's *and lots of them too*, Kellogg's UPCS and Cars 2 codes, coupons galore, even Kroger mailers which I never seem to get. It's a little gold mine.

My husband surprised me with a new-to-us TV for our bedroom that he found with a FREE sign on it. We had a very small TV in the bedroom, and while this new one isn't a flat-screen (our old one wasn't either), it fits in the space and we have a much larger picture!

We have an ironing board we found on the curb in Germany when stationed there in the 80's. I guess that is good life. My mom's ironing board we found by recycling bin 3 yrs ago. I brought it home to take it to the thrift shop. She said hey I need one.

My daughter found some Walking Liberty silver coins for my husband dumpster diving. He loves coins. Very nice free Christmas gift. He drools over them. Good thing they are in great cases. Yeap thrown away in collector cases.

Brand new mattress set, kids toys, baby supplies, metal(we are scrappers) of all kinds, the list is too long, we are scrappers and I'm a reseller so our eyes are ALWAYS searching. I can spot something in a dumpster that's not even in eyesight

I have found small pieces of furniture in dumpsters but not a lot of stuff. I did find carpet for my dorm room once though.

I know someone who does a lemonade stand during the summer and they collect the carpet from the dumpsters on campus at the end of the semester and have enough to use one piece each time. I guess they spill and drip a bit and don't want to be standing in mud.

Reminds me of being a kid walking around with my red wagon finding treasures on junk days. A friend furnished his entire living room with curb finds
My stepmom was such good friends with her Walgreens mgr that he'd set items next to the dumpster so she wouldn't have to reach in Discontinued makeups, opened packages & such like that.
Recently found a perfectly good couch for my sister, cleaned it up and then found an end table to match
It's definitely a little game to curb hunt

I found my grand-daughter toddler bed on a curb. It's a really nice one and it was just about 5 blocks and rode here on top of a car. It's a sleigh type and I put her name on the head board and she loves it.

We do bulky pickups in the spring and fall. We find all kinds of things. Best finds so far:

6 ft tall accordion picture frame holder
3 ft tall Rubbermaid tool case

Oh I look right at my DH and say I wasn't even thinking about it, I was just going to do it.

My latest find was a huge tote full of bigger outside trucks for my Grand -DAUGHTER. she is a cars & trucks kind of girl and wearing a tutu she can pull it all off. She was so happy to see her Papa bring those.

wow you guys have found some cool things. I found a framed picture once that had a free sign on the curb. I gave to neighbor she loved it! I also found a box of plastic hangers recently at my moms apartment building someone put next to dumpster because it was full. they all looked clean but I threw in shower sprayed all down with a cleaner then rinsed. then wipe all down with wipes a lot of work but we use a lot of hangers. I use them to hang clothes to dry.
