Saved from the landfill and hours of fun!



We had a nice time on Saturday afternoon. We are lucky in that we are in a cul de sac and we have a car park outside. Its very quiet as its only the neighbours (4 houses) that drive down. OK, dont think we are bad people, but Darren went to work Friday and one of his friends found this yellow tractor in the skip. They looked it over and there is nothing wrong with it! So he brought it home for our boys. Just needed a little scrub and the boys are so happy! Not that they didnt have enough cars already. You all know I am a avid user of freecycle, this is a prime example of how freecycle should be used. This tractor was destined to end up in a landfill. Why? when there is still life in it and plenty of years of fun to be had. Anyway we have it, Harvey is chuffed to bits as will Caiden when he is bigger. So we had fun pushing the boys around. It was Caidens first time out on the car and he loved it. You can see this from his smile. I found it hard to get a nice photo of Harvey, he was zooming about so quickly!

We have Spring Clean up where I live every 3 yrs and you'd be amazed at what people throw out. I call it 'the road side shopping center'. It's so funny to watch the cars stop and people get out and dig through the trash. You'd be amazed at how little ends up going to the landfill when the people are through digging through everything.
I picked up a gorgeous Crystal vase - no chips or cracks -that someone threw out. Yes, I have even picked up toys that have thrilled my nieces & nephews. Why not!

I've just joined our local freecycle myself, I hate throwing things away.

I think that you found a fabulous toy for a great price :) I always try and give away my kids stuff no matter what because toys and videos can always be used again and again. I feel guilty if I just take it and drop it off in the goodwill thinking I should have found a home for it LOL. Have a fun day!
