    wow, i thot this dumpster diving shit was dumb as hell and i would never do it........but i tried it out yesterday, i got soo much good shit !!!!

    i checked the home depot dumpster and i got 8 cans of rustoleum that were just sitting there, i also got some rollers and tins of paint that were in the dumpster, also some nice wood . In the Lowe's dumpster i got even more paint and hardware related stuff. In the Hobby Lobby dumpster i found a shit load of markers !!!

    so, before you say dumpster diving is stupid, just go try it out.......and if you dont get much good stuff on your first try it's because you went on a bad day.....i think i got lucky and went on the day right before garbage pick-up

    Bullshit dude, you can get huge ass bags of donuts and bagels and shit from bakeries that are only a day old, and the only thing in the bag is food, and they use thick bags for it. If they put food into regular bags then rats and shit could get in them.

    The first time I tried it, I got nothing out of it only because some asian lady yelled at me to leave. Apparently taking trash is stealing, and in her defense she lived there.

    i have to be home at a 11:30 and as soon as i get home my mom sets the alarm (new system we just got), so no going out late anymore.. but yeah im probably screwed because i think we have the same dumpsters here as your lowes/depot has.. ill check just in case, then go to hobby lobby's,,

    just got back from a dumpster mission. found an xbox some dvds (be careful with dvds cause workers purposly gash the backs so divers dont steal them) some games and a cool backpack and some glass picture frames.

    ok so after bombing tonight i went dumpster diving (just walked in the door), and it turned out to be an epic failure. First sherwin williams dumpster had pad locks all around it (they must have good shit in there), and then went to Staples dumpster and got an acordian file which i have no fucking clue what to do with, and then homedepot and lowes dumpsters are big closed compactors. I want to go back to sherwin williams soon with bolt cutters and get in, do you think its worth it?
