We got this big table from church - they were throwing it out. Romantically I thought it would be good for homework or lego or craft. Which is sometimes what it gets used for ... when it's not covered by washing (with the occasional addition of a feline). Glad I have a sorting table for the clean washing now - bit of a shame it's in the middle of the playroom.
And these are such a helpful addition (NOT!) to my life. So many boxes of fundraising treats that I can't quite remember what they're for (I think one is for preschool and one is for netball: 'obesity epidemic, what obesity epidemic????'). Luckily for me, librarians do like their chocolate/morning teas/cakes/treats/any excuse for a cuppa so I think I should be able to offload them before I eat it all. But it is not good having them in the house.
