I am a single mom and have another "resourceful" idea for anyone who might be interested in this adventure. One day a few years ago, while on Craigs list, I happened to find a free old Coke machine being given away on the site. I called on it and was given directions to go get it. I wound up at a storage unit place and took it. While at the storage unit place, I asked the manager what was done with many of the items that were left behind at the storage unit place. She said that most of the time, the items were thrown away, or they posted them for free on craig's list. I offered to come and clean out, FOR FREE, the units. Since then, about 3 years now, I have been "the one" who she calls to remove everything and I go and clean out the units. I can't tell you how many treasures I have found, have been able to resell and get money for and reuse for myself!! If you are able to, give a call around to local storage unit places. Most of the time, big time "clean out" people go to these places and charge THEM to clean out the units. If you go and offer your services for free, they are thrilled! The only downfall to this, is that, sometimes you have to haul away junk! But....the upside to this, is that sometimes you hit a motherload!! lol Just a suggestion! You never know what lies beneath!
