Growing up we could,as a family of 7,fit all we had in 3 boxes!Me my dh&dd live about 8 minutes from FT,HOOD.On any given day you can drive into neighborhoods and see perfectly good furniture and boxes of clothes for the trash truck!!They are moving out and didnt make arrangements for Salvation Army,Goodwill or the Shelter.They often throw away pets too!My DH and I were driving around one day and found a mint condition washer and dryer on the street along with a beautiful carpet,8 person dining set&buffet,patio set and bar,Curtains of all sizes,dishes,pans and a pool table.We found a lazy boy recliner yesterday and a new mattress set for our grandson/The plastic was still on it!!!Trees still in the containers from Lowes and a weight set that was new!Of course alot of people are too shy to ask but we always make sure before we take anything!If only they wanted to throw out a car!!LOL mine is about to be in the junk yard.The car lots want as much for some used cars as the new ones!!!Anyway I see a practically new dresser down the street and I've got my handy dolly ready to go and get it....JUNKING is what the Germans call it!
