Does anyone else go junking?

This is also called spalunking, goody picking, and trash picking (insert collective gasp here). My hubby and I went out earlier today. It's spring cleaning around here and we pick up metal and appliances to take to the junk yard for money. It works really well and today we found a BUNCH of records for my dad. So, do you go? And if you do, what is the best thing you have ever found?

  • Yes. It is spring clean up around here too. Yesterday we drove around looking in people's piles of stuff, but didn't find anything worth getting out of the car for.

  • Over here we call it Christmas shopping! I have been known to say "OMG, they are throwing that out"? If I don't use it my neighbor will use it.
