Take, for instance, my current home. I had never lived in an actual house with a yard as an adult. Until now. When I moved in, I had nothing that would come in handy for actually caring for the large plot of land that was suddenly mine. Until, that is, I opened the garage door. Inside was a lawnmower, rakes, leaf bags, gardening gloves, a spade, and a garden hose. Oh, and a wheelbarrow. All in good condition and all things that I use at least weekly to this day. The previous owner, who was moving overseas and had no need for outdoor tools at his new apartment, helped me so much by simply leaving those items behind. I was able to hit the ground running when it came to caring for my new yard and I instantly had the basics for doing so. If I had had to purchase these items from scratch, I would have had no idea where to begin!
Have you ever come across something left behind in your home that wasn't weird or junky or icky but just plain useful?
