    I just moved to a city and am in the process of buying my first place. I have no furniture so I see a whole lot of dumpster diving for furniture in my future. I wanna be a baglady

    I wanna be a bag lady! And I’ve never pulled anything out of the trash. I’ve gotten a few things from the curb, but not from the trash!

    I wanna be a bag lady! The funniest thing I pulled out of the trash wasn’t really there. It was in the days of pagers. My Mom thought she had thrown hers away so I bellied up (actually bodied up) INTO our apartment dumpster and searched for it! Through some gross stuff! She ended up finding it INTHEHOUSE! Oh well, makes for a funny story! =)

    I wanna be a bag lady! What is a bidet?? I can’t think of any good stories. I’m sure once upon a time in high school I had to dig through trash looking for my retainer:)

    I wanna be a bag lady! I had to go dumpster diving shortly after we got married to retrieve some checks that my husband accidentally threw away.

    I wanna be a bag lady! Actually, I need to use a bagster for a house my boyfriend just bought that has a bunch of junk in the back yard! The best thing I’ve saved from a curb is probably a wicker chair…it only needed some spray paint!

    Baglady me! Okay, this is really awful. But in college my friends and I pulled a tequila bottle out of the trash (strict Christian college, so this was a feat in itself), peed in it, then mailed it to our enemy. I did not “contribute” because I thought the school could trace my pee DNA. And yes, the recipient was deserving. Did she drink it? We’ll never know.

  8. Danielle says

    I wanna be a baglady! Our spur of the moment high school senior prank was to go around town collecting weird things from the city-wide overside trash day, and place them all over the underclassmen parking lot. We’re talking toilets, the plastic shower surrounds, cat-pee smelling 70’s easy chairs, etc. Good times… for us, not so much for the underclassmen.

    I wanna be a bag lady! I have def picked up a few pieces that some would consider “trash” my basement is like a graveyard of pieces I have picked up over the last 2 years!! Slowly they are all making thier way into our home though!

  10. says

    I wanna be a baglady! My sister and I once dumpster dove for some Christmas decorations that this lady threw away at a craft mart – they still had the tags!

  11. Emily says

    I wanna be a bag lady! One time in college, my friend pulled half a jar of peanut butter out of the trash and actually considered eating it before we stopped him!

  12. Courtney says

    I wanna be a bag lady! I threw away a Netflix DVD a couple years ago… turns out everyone else I know wasn’t charged when they lost DVDs, but I was. Boo. I should’ve jumped into the dumpster to look for it.

    I wanna be a baglady!

    The funniest thing I can think of (and it’s really not that funny) that we threw away was sawdust when we refinished our hardwood floors. We had 6-55 gallon drums of sawdust, so every week we would pour one of them into our large trashcan until it was all gone. We were too cheap to pay to have it hauled. The funny part was when the garbage truck arm would dump our can, it looked like a duststorm in our cul-de-sac for at least an hour! We’d watch from the window and laugh!

  14. says

    I wanna be a bag lady! It’s the new year and time to throw out LOTS of old stuff. I’ve never dumpster dived for anything but strong corrugated cardboard – and I don’t even do it, I send hubby out for it. We used it to line our squirrel’s cage.

    I wanna be a bag lady! I once went through all the garbage cans in the house, including the stinky diaper genie, looking for my daughter’s missing princess figurine… only to find out later that it was hiding behind the blinds in her bedroom all along. =(

  16. says

    Once my boyfriend came home with a very big bird cage. It was bigger than any of those sold in pet shops and only after a while I found out he actually took from a trash can If I knew before I’d probably be against it, I don’t like stuff from the trash.
