Fenced In

I love it when people move sometimes.

You see,when people moveout of Navy Housing, they usually don't want to bring evrything they had at their old house with them. Especially outdoors stuff -- like sheds, and fencing.

Now, I know I am going to be here for a while longer. And because I know that, I like to grab freebies for my yard when I see them. Case in point: today I have already aquired about 40 fett of fencing. I plan on going and getting more later on when I am finished volunteering at the school.

Why would I want someone's old fence? well, quite simply, because I am cheap. And poor. The Navy doesn't pay Hubby that well, though most civilians think it does. Anyway, so, this perfectly good cedar fence -- trash? I DON'T THINK SO!!

I may even be able to get enough to cover Mimi's yard too! But first - mine. Cause I got a 2 year old and a 5 year old, and If I can keep them in the yard, they can play back there all summer and I won't have to worry as much!! woot!

Now all I gotta do is get Hubby to help me put it all together.....And they just opened a Lowe's in Waterford! YAY!! I LOVE HARDWARE!!

When I lived up there, we always were finding outside toys for the kids, at one point we hat 4 cozy coupes. It is amazing how when the people move they just leave it behind. I save alot of money on things that I found and needed, I even know someone who pretty much furnished their house from moving families. Just ask Mimi about our yard!!!

kristi is right! We found good stuff trash picking. She got a carpet cleaner. I got a a/c! It's sad but you find the best stuff when a couple is divorcing. The wife goes home to mom and dad. The hubby doesn't want to deal with the stuff and puts it on the curb.

Hi, I just discovered your blog. I like it. Lots of good pictures, plus you have a good sense of humor.

BTW, I think rescuing that fence is a great idea.
