Every Trashy Tuesday I share with you what I FOUND that week in and around Dumpsters. Road Side Pick Ups and just Free Junk. This week, I thought I would share a bit of what it looks like inside that Dumpster Container. If you are an experienced Dumpster Diver, you may have noticed that many Dumpsters are in their own self-contained little outdoor “rooms”. Sometimes they are neat and tidy. People politely place things that are too large next to the Dumpster. Sometimes they are DEESGUSTING, with trash spilling out of and all around, onto the things that were unceremoniously dumped.
This week, you get a little look at the latter. Be prepared and be thankful my blog doesn’t come with smelling sensory…….
When it rains it pours. So it was this week inside the Dumpsters! Trashy Tuesday at its finest. I was pretty darn busy last week and not a lot of trash picking got done. In one quick sweep around my city, in only 2 DUMPSTERS! I found a treasure trove or junk today.
At my super-secret Dumpster Diving spot where I find the most ridiculously amazing things I found THIS DRESSER! The drawers were all present and accounted for. However, someone decided to make off with the knobs. As I tilted the dresser forward, I realized the drawers were still FULL!!!! Seriously, this was up there with some of the strangest things I have seen in and around a Dumspter. I did have a good time being a major snoop literally going through someone else’s drawers.
Most of the things I am donating, too creepy to think about being that intimate with someone else’s clothing and personal items….especially someone who may not be walking this earth any longer. Remember how I said it was SUPER SECRET?
Moving right along. What IS IT with me and bookshelves? I find so Darn many of them! Check out past Trashy Tuesdays to see how many bookshelf units I have found. This one is HUGE.
I am keeping it for myself. I am thinking it will have a perfect spot on top of my DUMPSTER DESK.
You can read all about that one HERE.
If you are a regular around Trashy Tuesday, then you might remember how important it is to cultivate a JUNK NETWORK. My junk network called today and told me there was this (again bookshelf) cabinet behind my local Target. Sure enough, it was still there this afternoon when I had time to go pick it up.
I am at MAXIMUM capacity in my garage. If you are a local reader, you can find me at a HUGE local garage sale this Saturday! Apple Hill in Brentwood, CA is having their annual Garage Sale and I have been graciously extended an invitation by a resident to share her garage with my Junk! Apple Hill is a gated community and they open their gates only once a year for East Contra County’s biggest garage sale. The lines go on for quite a while to get in, so plan to come early!
That is all the Junk I have for you this week at Trashy Tuesday. Now you really know the Inside of a Dumpster. See you next week for more Trashy News. Until then, have a totally Trashy week that I hope is filled with all kinds of good JUNK!
