I’ve decided my husband has become more of a dumpster diving addict than myself. Now HE’s asking ME when we’re going out. He’s hooked now. It’s like a sickness, but in a good way.
Brand new CD player/radio/MP3 player – box said defective, nope, works like a charm.
Shopping cart (the ones you buy that are on rollers and are plastic).
Brand new end table.
A huge bag of candy (which is being given to the trick or treaters Halloween).
A mask and Halloween scary hand. My hubby will put that on to feed the kids.
A huge box of vitamins brand new (weight loss shakes, protein shakes and women’s vitamins).
1 new box cutter.
One kid’s toy (which I will give my little neighbors tomorrow).
We calculated we found about $800 worth of products this weekend.
On a sad note. We saw a young man lying on the ground with dried blood on his head. We stopped. My hubby checked his pulse and he was still breathing. He also called out to him and he was unresponsive but breathing. We think we’ve seen this man before in that shopping complex asleep at the dumpster at night. He either fell and hit his head OR someone robbed him and took his bike.
We immediately went into the store and told the manager (since it was private property) what was going on. He immediately dialed 911. They were there a few minutes later and took him to the local hospital. I asked the firefighter if he was going to be OK. He said I think so. I think his head got hit pretty bad. Anyone who robs homeless people is a despicable person indeed. We may have saved his life.
In our state if you’re homeless and a victim of crime there are plenty of resources to help you. We need to help our own, pure and simple. Let’s stop bombing people of color overseas and take care of our people, right here, right now. Whether someone is homeless, mentally challenged or disabled, they need our kindness and our assistance.
