Free dinette set--unbelievable

November 22nd, 2006 at 05:42 am

DH had to work on clearing out yet another apartment where somone had left all kinds of stuff when they moved out.

Sometimes it's pretty junky, and I get aggravated if he brings too much home just because it's free. But this time he did good. Smile It's a dinette set, a table with leaves plus matching chairs. Solid wood with a formica tabletop, not a flimsy metal thing. It's in like-new condition and actually matches our kitchen cabinets.

I've just been hoping to snag two matching chairs to use with our older kitchen table, when we could afford it. We've been using a table and two chairs, none of which match each other. Now, we get a complete matching set, for free!!! I told DH he was off the hook for Christmas. Wink

    So cool! DH just found a beautiful mission coffee table that someone was throwing away when moving, it needs a top lightly sanded but it's solid wood and in great shape, I am always amazed at how wasteful people are! Anyway, our gain, enjoy your "new" stuff!

    Welcome to landlording 101. People would rather leave stuff for YOU to clean out rather than be responsible and take their own stuff with them. I had one couple leave behind a new bed and matress set and then had the nerve to call and ask if they could come and get it for a sister of theirs. Needless to say, I GAVE this bed to another long time, responsible tenant instead.
