Day 166: Free knives? Yes please!

So, in the foyer of my apartment building is a place where people leave stuff they no longer want. Sometimes it's bizarre, such as the shell of a TV (maybe somebody was using it as a shelf?) and sometimes it is just messed up (like a dresser missing numerous shelves). I have never claimed anything from the Free Stuff spot... until today!

There was a knife block with some knives sticking out. I don't need a new knife block, but I pulled out the knives. Much like in the 3 Little Bears, the first was TOO GROSS and TOO RUSTY. So, I didn't have high hopes when I pulled out the second and third knives but... they are in totally great condition!

These are the knives. Awesome, right?

They are Wiltshire brand, which is apparently an OK brand. I tried to price out the knives I got today, and it seems like they probably cost about $18 new. It's great to have more knives, since I'm doing more cooking. Plus, it fills up my knife block a little bit more, which makes me look like a better cook.

I'm slightly freaking out right now (*not about the knife thing). It's creeping up on the halfway point of The Year of Shopping Detox and I'm starting to worry that I'm not doing as well as I would have wanted. But that's another post for another day.

For now, I am going to enjoy my free knives! Woot!

All I need is a backdrop and I can begin a side business as a knife thrower!
