Coffee and Windchimes

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 10:40 pm

Decided to go to the local planetarium to watch a laser light show. When I asked my husband what he thought, he said oh it’s OK. I reminded him he was singing along with the songs in the show! He said, oh well, I liked it a lot.

On the way home, we decided to stop at a few places where we usually score and tonight we were not disappointed.

Found 6 intact containers of coffee (expired this summer) but as far as I know coffee really doesn’t go stale unless it’s opened. So for now, we have enough coffee for about a year. We had found 4 containers at this same locale a week ago.

Found about a half dozen wind chimes. Most of them are all tangled but I’ll untangle them tomorrow and hang them on our carport. Two were OK so they’re hanging up now. I love the way wind chimes sound in the wind.

Also recovered 6 boxes of trisket crackers. I love those things. They’re especially handy with dip if we have company over OR if we want a quick snack of fruit, cheese, deli meat and crackers. Goes good with wine.

4 wash cloths. Those do not go bad and they only wear out. Since I’m a neat and tidy freak, the more cloths and cleaners, the better.

Since my inventory is high and space is tight, I’m only getting things out of the dumpster I can immediately use or give to my neighbors. With space of the essence, I can’t get everything. What I have been doing is taking the stuff I cannot use and neatly setting it to the side. That way another diver can get it and use it.

It’s a lovely moonlight night tonight. The breeze blowing on my face feels wonderful!



  1. Wind chimes. Hmmm. Noisy things, they are.
    I think they rank right down there with glass paks on a Honda.

    However, neat and tidy women have always been a never-ending source of entertainment.

    Just thought I’d let you know I was still reading your stuff.

  4. Back in 1994 I was exploring in a dumpster in California behind a grocery store. I found one of those Santa tree toppers that had been thrown out. I showed my twin 2 year olds in the back seat, ” look someone didnt take care of Santa, poor Santa”…….they loved him. And to this day he comes out from the box of Christmas decorations every December to sit on a table somewhere with his thrift store wooden deer companion. Now 19 the twins say that is one of their favorite Christmas traditions, and even though he is getting a little ragged looking, he is their favorite decoration.

  5. Nice one. If you want to create a serene atmosphere for relaxation then hanging a bamboo wind chimes in your outdoor space is a wise thing to do. The sound produced by a bamboo wind chimes is very much softer and calmer than the shrill sound by a metal or glass chime.
