It’s the end of the month, which usually brings lots more good stuff on the curb, but this week has been pretty dry in terms of good trash. I’m guessing that February is one of the least popular moving months (I’d like to see the statistics!), so I figure it’s all uphill from here.

I biked around a lot today but found nothing. I came across this pile of stuff after I returned home, conveniently only a block away from my place. It isn’t trash day in my neighborhood until tomorrow.

It looked like someone else had already rummaged through it and ripped a few bags, although it could also have been that the people moving out were in a rush, or didn’t care about making a mess.


I saw this knife standing straight up in the snow. I wonder how it got stuck in that spot. Regardless, not the best place for it.


I ended up taking some dishes and a garbage pail (and the knife!). A woman walked by and took a few martini glasses. It’s nothing super exciting, but I cleaned them up and put them on the CL free section. They’re in fine shape and hopefully someone can make use of them.

Maybe I’ll have better luck tomorrow!

  1. I see that saucepan has some black at the bottom. Make a paste out of baking soda and apply to the stained area and allow it to sit until it has dried. After drying, apply a little vinegar so you get that wonderful chemical reaction, and then wash as normal.
