Sending the Kids Dumpster Diving

John Jones
Adel, IA

When we built our house two years ago, my kids loved getting in the builder's dumpster and pulling out all the unused materials that ended up there. We paid for the stuff, after all, so why let it go to waste? Thanks to their hard work, I was able to build shelves in the garage and basement using only "reclaimed" plywood and 2×4s.
