People are very kind, many things are for free if you care to look for it, and Panda believes that nothing is useless, everything is useful to someone, somewhere, sometime. :)
Viva the spirit of recycling!
Here’s a useful link: Freecycle
You can find all sorts of things on there! Even grand piano O_O
p.s. “I can’t believe what people throw away!” is a catch phrase of an NPC merchant in Diablo 3 act 2, whom Panda always loves to sell stuff to :)
