It’s always fun when you have a friend who shares your interests…in this case, trash picking (or free finds altogether). Two years ago, during Christmas break (we both worked in schools), my friend Amanda & I went trash picking one beautiful, sunny morning and had a blast. We’re talking giddy, pre-teen-like giggly fun that if we’d had gotten pulled over, the officer would have given us a sobriety test & called for back-up. We also learned from each other since she knew what some things were that I didn’t (mostly machinery-related) & vice-versa, plus the novelty of having someone to trash pick with was pretty damn cool too!
We decked out his yard while he was at work & had a blast! In retrospect, we probably should have taken some pictures, but alas….. If you can, I highly suggest you try surprise trash find yard decorating sometime for a friend, loved one, or even your own place!
How about you? Have you ever found a way to liven up a holiday with trash finds? How?
