Mother load of finds again tonight! Yes!
My wonderful husband jumped into the dumpster (it’s so much nicer to dive with someone) and was all stoked when he saw the 2 telescopes. I’d been talking about one for months that I so wanted one. I love looking at the stars and the moon with one. When I lived in NY, I used to go to the Hayden Planetarium all the time to see the laser light shows and the astronomy shows.
2 telescopes, 3 bags of diapers, half a dozen brand new lipsticks, cosmetics, fig newtons, the list is endless. I saw the craters on the moon tonight with the telescope. A few neighbor kids came by while my husband and I were outside trying to focus in on the moon. They were fascinated with the telescope. We had a short conversation about astronomy. Kids love that stuff.
Brand new DVD player in the trash, in the box, intact. Someone could use that. I’ll find someone who can use that and give it to them.
I was running out of makeup and bought some eye shadow tonight. Every single time I buy someone and I run out, inevitably I find it! (pictures attached). This is high end stuff that I myself will use. I like looking nice but makeup has gotten SO expensive that I tend to not buy the stuff I really like.
I have 3 bags of infant diapers I’ll be giving to a young mother with an infant child. I just need to find her to give to her a bag of diapers. I’ll also give her a container of Similac (when I checked the price of Similac I almost fell over, it’s very expensive and many young mothers just can’t afford it) along with the diapers.
We’re running out of room in our small house for all our finds. It’s time to start giving the stuff away. The law of reciprocity never fails me. I’ve been diving since the latter part of 2008. I started this blog about a year later after my friends insisted I share my finds with the world.
We divers are a different breed of people, maybe a little nuts, but who cares?
I find it morally repugnant to allow this stuff to go to waste. Why buy things when I can find them. I’m also doing these stores a favor. Less waste that the waste management has to haul for them, the less their trash bill. Plus all that stuff stays out of the landfill.
As it says in the bible as you do among the least of them, you do unto me.
God watches when we perform these random acts of kindness. A tally is made on our side when we treat others well. I once was told by a wise woman people treat others how they feel about themselves. Let that sink in.
People treat others as they feel about themselves. Is that not the god awful truth?
