    My neighbors are moving out, and had a giant dumpster put in front of their house. They cleaned out their garage, so I scored the following:

    box of hangers (nice, because we had recently broken several)
    plastic under-the-bed container
    large plastic tub with hinged lid
    ~ 30 Barbies and other dolls, plus clothes and playsets
    carryon suitcase (just needs the handle removed or replaced)
    (2) lunch-sized coolers (to be donated)
    tupperware
    coolpak for the coolers
    hairbrush (to be cleaned and donated)
    purse (to be donated)
    bathmats (good, because we needed a set for one of our bathrooms)
    trash can (the wife needed one for her office)
    Supersoaker water gun

    That was just what was on top of the dumpster. I haven't decided if I'm going to do any further digging, but I'm sure there is plenty more buried away.

    Just got a free month of Grooveshark's Anywhere account upgrade because I notified them that their surveys have not been showing up correctly in my account.

    Also, won an Amazon gift card at a twitter game at the conference last week, but don't know for what amount yet.

    Some dear friends visited this weekend and gave me a shirt, a large new bolt of stiff batting and a bolt of iron-on stabilizer.

    Cruise Magazine
    US magazine
    Shape Magazine
    People Magazine. I used to own a business that has been closed for 2 years and for some reason they send these magazines in that business name to my home address. I am not going to complain.
