When ‘Free’ Comes With a Price Tag

I couldn’t pass it up, and I mean that quite literally. Someone dumped it right in the middle of my shortcut through the back of a neighborhood center. I had two choices: hit it head-on or stop to investigate.
Closer examination revealed a unique piece of furniture — a child-size, solid wood combination five-drawer dresser wardrobe. I dragged it to the side and found it to be nearly intact. It would need a little work but had definite possibilities. Even in its needy condition, it was FREE — something for nothing!
Had this item appeared in the classified ads or at a garage sale, complete with a price tag of any amount, would I have been so eager? Not likely. It’s not on my list of needs, not even my wants. But FREE? That’s different. I’ll take it!…
