Woman finds expensive chair in neighbour's garbage

Woman finds expensive chair in neighbour's garbage

This is the perfect example of the saying, "One person's garbage is another person's treasure"...

A woman shared an interesting video about the items she found in her garbage area. 

Usually, you wouldn't expect to find new things in the garbage, well, unless that was something from your ex. But it seems that this woman's neighbours didn't find the value in their belongings anymore. 

The woman, an avid TikToker, showed us what her neighbours left out in the garbage. 

She found several pieces of jewellery, hair embellishments, a plastic storage drawer, a computer screen, an armchair, a cocktail shaker, and what seemed to be an expensive baby chair.

The expensive chair that she found is said to retail for $485 (which is around R9,000). This chair was secondhand, of course, but nevertheless it is quality.
