Sweet score

It's September in Darwin and that means it's nearly cyclone season. That means pre cyclone clean up, when people put old junk out on the verge for the council to take away.

The thing is, not all of it is junk. :)

Between last weekend and this weekend we managed to collect a few hundred dollars worth of stuff. I'd prefer to sell it all so we had a few more dollars for bills and stuff, but there's a reason people put it out on the verge instead of selling it.

Would feel a lot better if I could afford to just buy the stuff my family needs (even second hand) rather than picking through other people's garbage, but at least we were able to pick up a few things we can use.

Maybe one day we'll have a bit of disposable income again.
