Being an unabashed scavenger (it's one of the many ways I embarrass my teenage daughter), I got my son to help me load it into the car. If hubby certifies that it's bedbug free, it'll be in the living room tomorrow!
Now if the next moving neighbor just leaves their couch behind . . .
You remind me of my mother-in-law. She enjoys doing car boot sales and she is forever scavenging around my garage looking for stuff to sell! She would do exactly what you did, it wouldn't bother her in the slightest. I've given her some of my husband's or my clothes for her car boots in the past, and the next time I see her, she or my father-in-law are wearing it! LOL.
