Really? Who would go dumpster diving? At one time, I might have turned up my nose at the thought of it... but after losing everything material that we'd worked for years, I have to say, I've a new found admiration for this humble and lost art. It can be done
In this episode of Surviving on Shoestrings I go over some of my favorite finds that would have been considered 'trash'. I've found things from a high-chair that served all of our kids (and later a stuffed teddy bear) to recycle bin diving to pack items for storage/moving/selling when we lost our home. I also go through some do's and don'ts if you're new to the adventure that is dumpster diving!
I hope you'll listen to the show because I tend to talk more from the heart when I speak and it's my desire to help others who may be struggling and barely getting by... it does get better...even if it's not financially much better...things do get better and you can have FUN in this process.
I'd love to hear from you - please comment below. I may read your comment as an update on an upcoming radio show! Who knows who else YOU may encourage and inspire!
Have you ever gone dumpster diving? Was there something that drove you
to this choice or did you simply have a light bulb go on in your head
that it was a viable idea? Please share your story!
