Friday night finds

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 11:34 pm

The other night I was watching that show on TLC called Extreme Couponing. One of the episodes shows a gal going to the grocery store at midnight to get the fresh batch of groceries. So at midnight instead of going out and doing things young kids do, they’re at the grocery store at midnight to get the products and use those coupons.

When these ladies discuss their finds and getting stuff for free, you can see the light and glee in their eyes. That is precisely how I feel when I find a major find. My husband says I’m a dumpster diving addict and that I’m hooked. I told him yes sirreee bob I certainly am!

And tonight I found two good things. A HUGE picture frame and a brand new shredder (portable desk one) intact in the box.

Woo hoo, I was stoked.



  1. The frame is completely beautiful. Why on earth would they throw these things out? What a bunch of bozos.

  2. Tammy it was because the mirror inside it was broken. We had to be careful not to cut ourselves when we got it out of the dumpster. Now common sense would have been ok, the mirror is broken, let’s just sell the frame for a clearance sale, but OH NO, we have to throw it out! That’s fine, now we have a perfectly good frame to keep or give away as a gift.
