After I got home and set the new humidifier up, I rolled the old one out to the end of the driveway and put a free sign on it. It was gone in short order!
We regularly put free things at the end of our driveway. I hate to throw anything out and you would not believe the things people take when they are free! Last year, we took some old stairs off the back of our house so my husband could build a deck. I talked him into putting a free sign on them. He didn't think anyone would take them. They were gone within a couple hours! I love the idea that someone was hopefully able to re-purpose the wood.
When you get things for next to nothing, (I bought the old humidifier at a garage sale for $5.00) it is easier to put a free sign on it and give it to someone else. You really feel like you got your money's worth out of it already and it's great to give while you're getting! Not to mention the fact that you don't have to spend the effort (and money) hauling it to the dump! Win/Win!!
