Really dangerous ladder -perhaps you can upcycle it for something else


A 2 foot x 18″? Piece of plexiglass.  One side still covered in plastic.


Put this in the ground, put your hose thru the opening and you won’t squash your plants when watering.  Alternatively, don’t plant things you have to water.


Metal rakes.


Old lighter fluid


Chicken wire


Rabbit wire?  I made up the name but it has smaller openings at the bottom and larger ones on top.  I used it to protect my strawberries.


Speaking of strawberries – a strawberry planter.  I was never able to successfully overwinter strawberries in this pot but it does okay in the spring.  You can plant a lot of different things here.


An over the door wreath holder

May batch of giveaways – a.k.a. I’d like to see my kitchen floor again!

Lots of giveaways today – this are currently sitting in my kitchen and I want my floor space back!

EPDM rubber tape for insulating doors/windows


A giant blue “bucket”.  I used this one to carry out debris from remodeling.  Two nice, canvas handles so you can have one person on each side.  Would also be useful as a really, really big laundry basket.  Somewhat scratched inside.

276-1 276-2

Appliance rollers, dirty but still work


I’m not sure what the real name of this stuff is anymore but I’ll call it thermal bubble wrap.


35 pint dehumidifier – got this one from my Grandma years and years ago, works just fine I just got a new more energy efficient one.


Two wall cubes – for displaying your stuff.


Pair of plate hangers, I just couldn’t get the right size for what I was trying to hang.

One or more of the above screwdrivers

299 (3) 299 (2) 299 (1)

Your choice of earbuds (including a set of the two prong delta headphones)and some computer microphones


If you want to put some of your electronic wiring in thru the wall this will make the opening neater.


Old school hand powered drill


Some more furniture slides – these nail in, I only needed one


Need a headphone extender?  This one is many, many feet long.  Fits into the larger openings like on a CD player in your entertainment center.

304 -301 – thinking of summer

Time to think of summer, therefore the following items are available for free:

Set of 8 black melamine plates.  I haven’t used these more than a couple of times, downside, not microwave safe.


10,000 lux light therapy lamp.  I used this before I got my Vitamin D levels medically adjusted.  I can’t say for sure if it works or not but since it’s free you can give it a try.


I used these battery powered socks to keep my feet warm before I invested in some awesome toasty boots.  I believe they use 1 D battery per foot (might be a C).


Ready for the beach?  I have one cream and one shell patterned beach towel.

314 thru 305

Drain Cleaner – used it once.  Don’t remember if it was effective or not.  I think I had a hard time getting the cable back in.

313 5 cards and envelopes from Audubon

312 Lots and lots of containers of flat head screws.  I despise flat heads so if you can use them, they are yours!

311Spamalot playbill from their first time thru Chicago, when they were still doing “The Cow Song”

310A chuck key that doesn’t fit anything that I own

309A pack of fuses that I used to have to use in my 1991? Honda Civic because every time I put the radar detector cord in the cup holder while it was still plugged in it blew a fuse.  Fun times.

308Two new replacement sash locks for windows.  I have modern windows now so I don’t need these anymore.

307A motorola cell phone charger fro your car

306Pampered Chef bamboo cheese cutting board

305Container Store jewelry drawer insert with plastic lid (which still has the plastic unpeeled).  This is too wide for my current drawers.
