 Ok, so it wasn't actually IN the dumpster. It was sitting beside it. When I went to check my mail (which is right beside the dumpster), I noticed it. It was raining really hard but it looked fine. So I put it in my car and brought it home. I disinfected it but it was clean and in perfect condition. My S/O told me it was gross for me to be 'dumpster diving'..lol. Whats the best 'trash' you ever got?

I've never found anything good in the trash, but I don't think I've ever looked either! Appearantly the dumpster right outside our apartment always has good trash though, because there is always people digging in it (ick)! I feel bad for them because my son poops 2 or 3 times a day, so you KNOW that trash has to be stinky! LOL!

That's awesome! Good for you! I have never actually been dumpster diving, but know people who do it and they get tons of good stuff. One man's trash is another Momma's treasure!

We try our best to live a very recycled lifestyle lol or whatever you call it we dont label ourselves but I am not ashamed to say ive gotten planty of stuff out of other poeples garbage, we look at it a recycling for sure I mean its gonna end up in a landfill anyway so if we or someone I know can use it and its in good shape im all for it! trying to think of the best thing I got oh year a bag of costume jewlery was thrown out among a box of stuff atleast I though it was costume jewlery until I looked through it all there was a really pretty ring that I took my husbands friend he has a diamong and gold tester,the ring ended up being platinum and a 1 carrot diamond,I went back to the house a few times no one ever there,ended up finding out the poeple were getting evicted and moved out in the middle of the night,I ended up selling that ring to my husbands friend for $550.00! and he buys to resale so theres no telling what it was really worth this happened last mth
