During a lunch walk with my friend, she spied an abandoned laundry basket on the sidewalk and near it was a bag of trash. Sticking out of the bag was a wooden rack. She grabbed this, too.
Back home the wooden rack, after being sanded and finished, would serve as a towel rack in the bathroom.
A new laundry basket could cost around 70 pesos; a wooden rack about 40 pesos.
