As evident in my other posts, I was taught by my mother at an early age how to save money, spend with caution, and, most importantly, never give up a bargain. Well, Mom, I have taken those lessons to heart and have found the best of all those tips. Yes folks, Dumpster Diving! I know, I know, I have already written about the joys of dumpster diving and how it helped me pick my college, but I have hit the jackpot once more and must share!
tip number one: save money. Well, dumpster diving is free, so that's a huge check!
tip number two: spend with caution. Again, it's free, so no worries there.
and, tip number three: Never pass up a bargain. No folks, this is better than a bargain. Did I mention it's FREE! I have cut out the middle man and I get the goods with only one price: my time. And, I've got plenty of that to spend and share!
So, as you can see, I have made out pretty well in my expeditions thus far, and living in a college town means that this is a never ending adventure!
My Grandfather goes dumpster diving every year at a local college, and I think I have figured out why it is so thrilling to him as it is to me. He's a hunter, and I'm sure he misses the thrill of hunting deer on the off season so he finds something cooler: hunting for free stuff! It's almost as cool, except you don't need a gun.
So, Pop, I will join you anytime you want to hunt for some furniture. I'm sure it doesn't taste as good as venison, but it's definitely an adventure!
