This really does work well ... AND you can get rid of a lot of junk... and get some pretty nifty stuff too!!
I've given some - but have gotten a Broyhill dresser that is in beautiful shape, a cool desk I'm using as a sort of buffet, various books for homeschooling, a palm tree that would be about 200.00 at the nursery... and tonight we just picked up 17 old 6 pane windows that we're going to incorporate into a greenhouse of sorts.. :)
I really like it.. my husband and son first thought it was a "hippy" thing.. I just pointed out that other peoples trash is sometimes out treasure... hahahaha.
