No, don’t worry, I’ve not totally lost my mind (well, not yet at least)! But I did get a little holiday season cheer injecting into my routine last week while taking out my recycling. Look what I found!
A whole treasure trove of Ikea ornaments tucked by my apartment building’s dumpster. And I didn’t even take all of them. Someone was obviously moving out and just trashing a bunch of stuff. There was an artificial Christmas tree too, along with a bunch of random, perfect condition stuff, like an oar, Christmas tree lights, a shower caddy, etc.
I had to run out to a friend’s place after finding them and was keeping my fingers crossed that everything would be there when I got back, and it was! I stuffed these ornaments into my reusable shopping bag and crossed my fingers that no one would see me dumpster diving 🙂
