Productivity killer: Treasure in trash

Can you really furnish an entire home by scavenging the streets? This guy in New York certainly did.

The story has some helpful hints for those who want to take on the challenge like — wear gloves when picking through broken glass. And a good bottle of Febreze can go a long way.

Gotta say though, it’s kind of surprising that the guy still ended up spending more than $400 on things like cleaners, a U-Haul and food along the way.  Really? You couldn’t have borrowed a friend’s truck and packed some tuna sandwiches?

    Not to mention that you might be able to save yourself the time and just spend $400 at a thrift store.
