If you have been around Ally’s Hints for very long you have seen a couple of posts about me picking the garbage. Well I wouldn’t say going through it looking but I do have an eye for something good sticking out of or laying beside a dumpster. I have never been in any garbage piles!
I have found baby gates, toys, strollers, slides and yesterday a perfectly good Fisher Price Space Saver high chair. Our neighbors must have cleaned out their garage a little bit and I saw it. I looked at it twice when I walked outside and I didn’t know what they would think of me going and picking up their garbage. Well, they have their house up for sale so I decided a good high chair for a friend is worth them seeing me pick up their garbage.
This is what it looked like after I picked it up from the curb.
I washed it all down and threw the seat protector in the washer. It didn’t look so good BUT it came out looking wonderful!
Here is what it looked like all cleaned up
I contacted a couple of friends that I thought maybe could use it and found a home for it immediately and it will be handed over tonight! This high chair sells for about $50.00. The great thing about these is that you can find replacement parts for them easy too and a lot less than buying brand new. I replaced a tray for one once. Click HERE if you need some parts for one.
What have YOU found in the garbage lately? Anything good?
