Yep, my wife brings home any trash finds she thinks I would be interested in...Stereo components, albums, computers......
And, she always calls from garage sales, if she spots something there, that she thinks I may be interested in.

Last year I found a pioneer CD player out for the trash in the rain. Took it home, dried it out in the furnace room, and a few days later took it apart to find the lens had fallen out and was rattling around inside the player.
A little epoxy had the lens back in and it now plays fine.
My wife did put her foot down when I suggested taking some of the items put out for the trash at an open house we recently visited. Apparently it would send mixed signals to the realtor !

When I'm in my HOMELESS dumpster diving mode, I usually find some good meat left on them chicken-wing bones! Yum!

I made the mistake of pulling out some vintage tubes from a unit in the trash here in NYC in front of my best friend's 5 year old son. Well, the kid has a memory like an elephant and for the past 3 years never fails to bring it up at the most inopportune moments...like when I'm hitting on one of his baby sitters he'll talk about how I take things out of the trash.
