Last year the year before and even this year.
Where?....now that would be telling...and I can't give away secrets. :)
But in more expensive areas of Sydney.....I will say.


1. A brand new Ikea white country chair.
2. A cut glass vase(nothing wrong with it.)
3. A cane lounge we sold on eBay.
4. A money box with $30 of coins inside, kept that one :)
5. A brand new red rug.
6 .Hardly used kids toys.
7. Brand new child's toy still in box.
8. Brand New electric Tooth brushes unopened.
9. A metal chair that looks wonderful in my fern garden.
10. Iron lace table and chairs,sold them on Ebay.
11. A 1950's chair in great condition, sold once again on Ebay.
12. Very old flower stand, that looks amazing behind ferns in my garden.
There are a lot more, but 12 will do for now.

I found a full suite of furniture the day the people set it out an it was like new. Was very happy as we needed a new one.
A seesaw. The kids loved it.
There are always things left behind at our local dump, BBQs, couches, chairs, all in working condition, but the thing I've found is a full dining table and chair set. Although the chairs didn't last that long, I still have the table and I plan of refinishing it.
When I first moved out all of our furniture came from hard rubbish!
A clam pond for my ducks.
I found some nice bar stools for a friend who was looking for them. They were like brand new, left out by neighbours. I also once picked up a glass used as a table top that I use with my kids and let them finger paint on it.
I am too embarrassed to look through it however recently I saw some fencing for stopping my dogs going on spots I dont want them on, so I phoned my daughter in law to pick it up for me!

She did this and now I have a lovely new lawn with no dogs ruining it, as it is fenced off -she explained it is good to take things off the road as it is "re-cycling" which is good as less landfill.

I'm constantly finding things in different areas on my junk mail rounds in different suburbs during the year.

Some of my best include:

A new wooden magazine holder
various sizes plastic garden pots
around 20 plates and bowls last week
A salad bowl with pictures of fruit on it.
A heap of kids books in 2011, which I was able to donate to a school library where I helped at the time
