    Default What did you get free September 2019

    A friend's wedding ceremony was held on the roof of a museum. The museum gave all guests a very soft blanket with it's logo.

    Hair styling products a friend doesn't use.

    Four cookbooks from the recycling station's free things area. It's unfortunately illegal to take other people's things at the recycling station unless it's donated in a separate area. So much useful stuff is just burned as trash.

    Wow, Tine. That would be painful. You wouldn't believe the nice stuff we've pulled out of recycle and off trash heaps. We can salvage anything as long as we sign a waiver of liability, so we can't sue our county if we get hurt salvaging something. Glad you got the cookbooks.

    A cool wooden "cookbook holder" - like a small shelf/bookends with two small drawers in it. I am using it on my desk.
