My grandfather's granddaughter

One of the joys of living in a middle class neighborhood is that people put lots of great stuff on the curb, either for free or for super cheap. Yesterday, we purchased a bed from the folks around the corner for $50. It was exactly what I was looking for to put in A's new room. Score!

We've also grabbed a grill (that didn't work, so we put it back on the curb), a sandbox, and a futon from our neighbors' curbs.

I'm not truly a R, I suppose, because I can't fix the stuff I find, but I also don't have a shed full of treasures to repair!
