we happen to have a scrap metal yard very close to our house. this has come in handy countless times over the past nearly 10 years that we've lived in our house. we have taken all sorts of things to the scrap metal yard from various home projects. normally, we make trips to the scrap metal yard pretty regularly, but we have been so busy that we haven't gone in 2 years! we had made piles of things in our basement and garage to take to the scrap metal yard "someday" but just never got around to it.
on friday, we finally had the time so we collected everything that we've been holding on to for the past 2 years and loaded up the car. we went to the scrap metal yard and unloaded it all which felt so good. in total, we had 520 pound of metal!!! normally we would have made a pretty penny off all of that, but since the price of metal is so low right now we got next to nothing. regardless, we didn't care because we were just so happy to get it out of our way!
another quarantine house project checked off the list!
