Flop: should have snatched free chairs

Some nice kitchen chairs were set out to curb in our neighborhood. Ours are gross and crusty and I *really* need some chairs. So, instead of swooping down & grabbing the chairs that were set out, I went to the store first. Sure enough, they were gone by the time I got back. Doh!

Ugh! I just did this too. A beautiful settee was by the curb down the road (painted red, but I could have fixed that!) It was late, had to get the kids to bed, and I would have had to take the seats out of the van to fit it in. When I went back a little later it was gone!!!!!!

I'm sorry about your flop, but it warms my heart to hear of others who do curbside pickups! I debated over a BBQ for 6 days once and got it the day before trash day, whew we still use it. Naomi

We (our town) have to take that kind of stuff to the dump ourselves. So no curb side shopping for us!
