One Mans Trash = This Chicks Treasure

Sheesh.  Where have I been?
Besides inlaws, work, inlaws, work, home, work...
Just trying to get settled in again and get in a routine now that I'm back from my 3 month vacay :)
I have almost everything unpacked and cleaned.
I think something about living with the bare minimum all summer has made me realize that I have a lot of junk stuff.  I have seriously been in a cleaning frenzy since I got home.
Maybe it's because I didn't fully "spring clean" but I have been going through room by room and organizing/de-junking/shining everything up.

I told you I had some trash treasures to show you.
I was just walking by our dumpster minding my own business at our apartment before we left Seattle 
when out of the blue I glanced over and saw something that caught my eye.
"Is that what I think it is?"  I thought.
I rushed over to it and snatched it up.
 Wait, there's more?
2 of them?

Hold the phone, THREE of them?!?

Say Whaaaaaat!?
Ya darn right.

Not one, not two, but three of these amazing, beautiful, perfect condition plastic frames.
I was once close to buying one like this at IKEA a few months back.
I didn't feel like forking out the $30 for it though.
Gladly rejoicing in the fact that I waited.

There you have it.
I may or may not have found other dumpster goodies too,
but we'll save that for another day.
I'm off to enjoy a nice summer afternoon with my family!

Don't be scared to look in dumpsters! 
Okay, maybe be a little bit cautious...
