I have taken dumpster diving to a whole new level. I was leaving church after work and happened to glance over at the dumpster. Sitting right on top were 6 really nice sofa/chair cushions! I’m not talking about those cheap crappy ones either, I’m talking nice ones, the kind that sell for $80 a piece! I’m pretty sure I ran to the dumpster, you know, just in case anyone else was eyeing my treasure. I dove in and started unloading my cushions, and when I looked up to get out, I had an audience. “Look, Jody’s in the dumpster!” Yes. Jody can be found in any dumpster that has useable stuff in it.
Now some of you might be wondering if I was embarrassed. The answer is yes, but probably not for the reason you’re thinking. I’m not at all ashamed to be caught in a dumpster, I’m ashamed that there was useable stuff that was carelessly discarded. All it takes is a phone call to a local thrift store. They will gladly come pick things up from businesses or residences FREE of charge. The donations sometimes go directly to people in need or sold to financially help impoverished people.
