If you're a property owner you pay a lot of taxes to whatever school district you live in and one local school district is giving you the chance to buy back some of the stuff your taxes paid for in the first place. The Canutillo Independent School District is going to be holding an auction to get rid of a lot of pretty cool stuff that you might be able to use around your house.

My mom used to be a teacher and I remember seeing the huge store rooms at the school where she worked full of stuff that could have been auctioned off. I'm not sure what happened to all those things but I'm glad to see that area school districts are being smart about not storing stuff and offering it instead to the public. Yes, you paid for it already and will have to bid for it now but still, at least that stuff isn't going to be gathering dust in a store room.
