Good finds tonight.

2 12-packs of beer, one Neutrogena healthy skin rejuvenator still in the box (works wonderful) can’t wait to see the final results a month down the road, insect repellant (good for self defense for women), Jason facial wash, hand sanitizer for the purse (trial size), eye shadow, lip liner, child’s toy (bouncy lighted ball), burn bandages, face powder, 1 combination lock, 1 brand new landline phone (will resell at garage sale), 1 pair of blue earrings and pill boxes.

Dived a little later tonight, not too much traffic out past 10pm. Either people are at home getting ready to go to bed (if they have a job and get up early) or at home watching TV and surfing the net. NOT dumpster diving like me. Oh well.

I’m on my way home and out of my rear view mirror I see a fairly new silver Mercedes edging right up against my bumper, didn’t hit me though. THEN I realized the driver was drunk and was going back and forth behind me from one lane to another. My phone was in my purse so snatching it up right away to call 911 wasn’t an option. By the time I got my phone the driver had either pulled over or found his/her way home. They were close to a bar so they probably lived close to the bar. If that’s the case, why not walk there.

My heart was pounding I was so scared. That was my first interaction with a drunk driver right near me. Scared me to death.

Found dozen boxes of cookies, big bag of popped popcorn and 2009 Calendars in a box.

A box of 2009 Calendars going into the landfill. What a waste. At the beginning of 2009 when those calendars were NOT sold, why not discount them down to a $1.00 or .50? Now they’re going into a landfill, which is a complete waste.

OR the calendars could have been given away for free! Good PR for the store and win win all around. I noticed some of the calendars were Hannah Montana calendars. Surely some young lady who’s parents income had been compromised would have liked those calendars.

These wasteful retail stores make me furious.

Paper Plates, Cups and Napkins

Christmas paper plates, paper coffee cups, and napkins. Guess I won’t be washing dishes for a few weeks.

Also retrieved 4 cases of Sugar Free Red Bull. Sugar free and energy drinks? Works for me. I’ll use the drinks AND recycle the aluminum. Win win for all.

I’ve not posted on my blog as I’ve been finding so much stuff it’s not even funny. Not only that it’s been raining and storming so bad, diving isn’t an option. Not a bright idea to stand in the rain and catch a cold.
