I looked out my window yesterday morning…

…and saw a green thing trapped beneath the tire of a car parked in front of my house.  I walked outside and saw that it was a large roll of bubble wrap.  The roll looked like it was just a strong breeze away from unwinding down the street, so I freed the trapped end from under the tire, rolled it back up, and sat the bubble wrap beneath my front yard maple.  Maybe its owner would notice it was missing and come back for it.

As you can see, nobody came back for the bubble wrap.  I eventually decided it was now my bubble wrap.  I brushed off the roll and brought it inside.  The great thing is that I was actually in the market for some bubble wrap.  I’ve got a little shop on Discogs where I’ve been selling my extra CDs and records, and I’ve been going through packing materials like crazy.

Free bubble wrap!

    I bought a couple of rolls of bubble wrap to pack for my recent move, and that stuff is expensive! Good score!

      The packing materials market is a racket! I’d eat through all my (meager) profits if I went out and bought the envelopes, tape, boxes, etc. It’s definitely better to just wait until the things I need make their way to my front yard.

    I admire that you saved this bubble wrap. I would’ve unrolled it in the driveway and slowly driven over it repeatedly with the windows down.
