    A free vintage zinc cap, slightly damaged. I can easily fix it. I was short one to go with my vintage blue glass jars I recently started using for food storage.

    I got a free telescoping weenie fork someone left on the picnic table at our campsite. It looks like it has been all winter, so I doubt anyone will come looking for it anymore.

    We got a free orchid, 3 cotter pins, and a giant box of 55 gallon trash bags at Home Depot, courtesy of our cash back CC.

    DH and I gave up our boring holiday weekend at home in order to help a friend demo products at a hobby show. In exchange for our time and effort we received:

    - a free hotel room for 4 nights
    - paid meals
    - entrance to the show (a $75 value)
    - over $130 each in promotional products
    - two $10 gift certificates
    - a currently unknown amount of store credit with the company we volunteered for

    In addition, we "spent" $70 worth of gift certificates we have been collecting for a few years, and essentially got more free toys.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    Another big bag of yarn from my friend, I was able to give her $20, her share of a chenille bedspread I sold on Ebay, that she had given me. She was thrilled.

    Also two candles in jars.
