Not for the first time, I peeked into the skip bins and saw an item I had been planning to buy anyway.
A mini tabletop ironing board - nothing wrong with it except that now that someone had thrown it into the bin, the cover was dirty. I brought it home and washed the cover, added a layer of blanket to thicken up the padding, and it's now hanging in my rental unit, with the old and awkward full-size wooden one stashed away in the attic.
PEOPLE! What is wrong with people just throwing things away? Why on earth can't people leave stuff out where it will be clean, and taken by someone who needs it?
