DIY Doors? Short-term
2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: sliding-door.jpg]
So, just moved into my first apartment with my girlfriend. We didn't have a lot of money, so we got a little one bedroom that's a little bit of a fixer upper. The guy we're renting from will let us do just about whatever we want, so long as we leave it nicer than we got it.
Thing is, aside from the front door, bathroom and backyard sliding door (it's a tiny area and that door needs some fixing as well) there are no doors in the house. No door to the bedroom, no door to the kitchen, and I have cats. My girlfriend loves the cats, but they've frustrated her a bit when she's cooking or we're doing anything in the bedroom. At first she tried just shoving a dresser in the doorway, but as I told her, they'll just climb over it.
We don't have much money at the moment, so I was thinking something along the lines of just tacking up sheets, but that'll be a hassle.

recently i built two computers for me and my family, and now i have a huge box full of those air cushions from all the shipments, about 50-100 segments.
Now, i can think of a dozen ways to use them, building a raft, insulating a small shack or a doghouse, light stuffing for a bulky halloween costume, but i dont really want to store a box full of air, just in case i might need it one day.
So my question is, where can i get this stuff apart from ordering fragile electronics? The company producing them (fpintl) obviously just sells the machines to produce them on-site. Can i just go to the post office and ask them for 2 meters of big bubblewrap?

This isn't really /diy/, however I feel this board has the best demographic as there's a lot of frugal people here who dumpster dive and that sort of thing.
I walk around a lot at night, mainly because I finish work at 2AM and walk home, but I also find myself walking to shops to get cigarettes late as well. I have been noticing a trend lately - I'm finding a lot of stuff. I've found weed, not a big stash or anything, just a few grams and I'm ALWAYS finding money.
All of this I find on accident, I'm just strolling along listening to music and 'Oh, £3.25 in change!'. Next weekend I'm going to go out on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night and actively look for stuff. I don't really need the money, but I'm just interested in how it turns out.
I'm posting to ask for ideas, hints and tips you might have.
> Take a torch
> Go on weekends, drunken people drop shit all the time
> Check curbs, this is where shit falls out of people's pockets when they are getting in and out of their car
> McDonald's drive-throughs
> Bus stops
I'm kind of hoping I stumble across some drunken cunt's wallet and phone, but for the most part just coins would be nice.
