Garbage Picking: Reclaim, Sell, Benefit All

My boys and I went out garbage picking on our bikes. We hit a sweet spot and snagged a train table for a toy train set. It was in excellent condition.
We listed it on Craigslist.org for $35 – priced to sell. Within 5 days we sold it to a woman for her son’s third birthday.

It’s a great feeling to save something useful from being crushed in a garbage truck and dumped in a landfill. It’s even better when you pocket some cash and make a mom feel really lucky to get a great deal on a gift for her little one. And, hey, it comes assembled!

Happy Earth Day 2010!
