Here's my finds so far!
A military backpack with no frame or shoulder straps, writing pens, forks & spoons, two cell phone chargers (they work!) AAA batteries, toilet paper, aluminum foil, can of beans, ramen noodles, bath soap, dish soap, DVDs and a black carrying bag. All found around the University of Milwaukee Wisconsin UWM

Best single find I and a frirend of mine had was a bunch of stuff just outside of an apartment building.

I don't know for sure it was from students, but I guess so cause of the timing and the kind of stuff. Lot's of half used spicery and sauces (still long before the "best before" date) of chinese origin (so I assume they were Chinese students), cutlery, bowls and plates, a pair of skinny black jeans (I was really happy about those), a kettle, kitchen knives and other bits and pieces. All together a clothes basket full of stuff.

We brought all to the squat we were staying in at the time. Was really welcomed there. I only took the jeans for myself, cause I needed some better pants. :)

Oh hell yeah...thanks for the reminder. Spending tomorrow night on the boat in Bellingham to get some cleaning/organizing done and this seems like a good activity for the day as there's a university in town.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $150.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
