Another part of dumpster diving is curbside recyling. Many times if someone is having a garage sale and they can’t sell it all – they’ll put a sign out for free and you take what you can.
Coming home from dinner tonight I saw a big pile of stuff in someone’s driveway close to my home. I encountered another fellow diver as well. Young single mom with one child. We talked a little. She was able to fill up the back of her truck with some goodies – good for her.
I scored pretty good tonight. Brand new wall painting from Ikea. A new corkboard for my office. 1 set of cocktail plates from the Pottery barn (brand new still in package), a cool pair of sunglasses, 1 Krups juicer. I love fresh juice, especially lemonade.
One man’s trash is truly one man’s treasure. I’m seeing more divers like myself. Is it a sign of the times or is my radar just on to notice folks like me?
