Dumpster Diving

First off....
It is such a beautiful day here in Alabama!!!


The sun is shining and it is wonderful!!!!


Next, I've got a question......


Is it OFFICIALLY dumpster diving
if you don't actually GET INSIDE
of the dumpster?


OK, that's what I thought.


I guess I went dumpster diving today.


EVEN THOUGH I wasn't out LOOKING for stuff in dumpsters


AND


I didn't actually get IN the dumpster.


OK....Who am I kidding,


I've always got my eye out for treasures

beside trashcans and dumpsters,


but I USUALLY don't get out

and get stuff

(unless it's really good stuff!)


Nevertheless,

I was going back to work from lunch today

when I spotted all these cute fruit baskets

by the side of the dumpster
at the pharmacy next door to my office!


JACKPOT!!!!




Look at these!!!


I love 'em!!!


There are 6 of them
and they are really a great size
not too small.
And a few are really big!



I think they must have used them for display

because they are all very sturdy

and in perfect condition

and they will be just perfect

for an organization project

I'm wanting to tackle in our garage!!!!

And then I can always use them

to decorate in the fall

or for a fall party like we had this past year!!!

And best of all......

It didn't cost me a penny!!!!!
(I know....you can't believe I'm THIS
excited over fruit baskets!)


So keep your eyes peeled


You never know what you'll find


and what is it they say....


One person's trash........
