School Supplies

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 11:02 pm

After conducting commerce tonight, decided to try out another strip mall that is actually pretty dead right now. I call these ghost malls. VERY few customers. What galls me is that in this time of rampant unemployment major companies are still hiring men and women in retail who are sullen, rude and just plain I don’t give a damn attitude.

Right now I don’t have to work as I’m a full time housewife and homemaker to my new husband. I don’t need to work now as he makes a pretty good living. He takes care of the outside and I take care of the inside.

But with all the good men and women out of work, I still continue to encounter on a regular basis these type of retail employees. I’m always very chatty to retail clerks and anyone in the service sector as I used to work as a retail employee and a waitress when I was younger to put food on the table.

We have a huge class of men and women who in their 40’s and 50’s who were former middle manager who would love to have a job and these companies continue to hire these ungrateful clerks.

Enough of my rant!

Recovered new out of the trash, a $30 stapler, a ream of paper, 1 audio cable, 1 flashlight with a light on it and a new filing rack (similar to what you’d put letters and papers in). Brand new.

The school supplies will be donated to a local school this week. The administrative offices are open.

The rest of the stuff we’ve found is going to a new home. My husband and I are going to a local church picnic this weekend. We were told not to bring food, just the two of us. I do know for a fact that many a young couple with children and others will be there. I will be bring several boxes to donate to the church. What they do with them is their business.

I’ve found that when I donate and not hoard my finds, God always sends me more.



  1. Excellent idea to bring things for others. Sounds like a nice life you have carved out – finally. You deserve it.

  3. You’re very welcome. A wise quote was be the change you want to see in the world. Inactivity begets inactivity. A body in motion stays in motion. The more we find, the more we give away and the more we find. The cycle is endless.
