Another week of diving is complete. It started out slow, but on Friday I managed to find a bunch of yummy items. Let's look at the fun items I found this week.

Another week is over, so lets talk about what I got this week. I didn't go diving much this week, and when I swung by, I didn't see much. I did find some fudge this week which was something different, but I gave it to some friends because I didn't need that much sugar in my diet. On to the items I got

I was out of town this week, so it wasn't until Saturday that I was able to get anything from the dumpsters. Let's dive into what I found this week. ...continue reading "Diving during Week 36 of 2017"

Another busy week is over. I sadly am not sure why the weeks have been so busy, but again it was. This week when I did manage to swing by the dumpsters, it seemed plants were the most likely thing to be found. Lets talk about the items I acquired this week. ...continue reading "Diving during Week 35 of 2017: Plant Edition"

This was a good week in the dumpsters. I didn't have a ton of time to check out the dumpsters this week, but when I did stop, I found things I wanted. ...continue reading "Diving during Week 34 of 2017"

It's been a busy week for me this past week. I got sun burnt and didn't have much energy to go diving. The couple of times I swung by, the dumpsters were empty. Luckily this morning I swing by on one last ditch effort to see what was there and got a few goodies. There were other veggies in the dumpster which I didn't take, but most of the veggies were warm and I didn't think I'd eat them before they went back, so I let them stay. On to what I did take. ...continue reading "Diving during Week 33 of 2017"


Paper Shredder

The most interesting item of the week was a paper shredder. I went looking for yummy veggies and instead of veggies, I saw this paper shredder. I debated about taking it since I thought maybe it wouldn't work, but decided it was worth the chance. When I got home, I plugged it in and it looks to work just fine. There might be some issues with the auto sensor of when a paper is put in the shredder, but otherwise, all is good.

This was good for me since I burned out my last paper shredder so I haven't had one for awhile. I like shredding mail that I get since credit card companies love to send me pre-approvals and those checks for cash advances. Now I have a shredder I can use again.


I got quite a bit of fruit this week. If you look, there was a bunch of apples, some mandarins, and a few grapes. All of these are good fruits to have and yummy. I liked the variety that was in the box.

I also got a bunch of plantains in the box so I'll have to give cooking them another go. It didn't work out so well last time, so if you have any suggestions, let me know in the comments.


This seemed to be the week for yellow squash. I found two boxes full of them one day, and found a bunch more later in the week. I enjoy them, but sadly can't eat enough to not have all of those go bad.

I also got some other veggies so I could have variety in my diet this week. It seems that peppers, broccoli, and cucumbers are on the menu. There seems to be enough for me to be eating peppers for a few weeks along with all the other goodies.

That's about all I got this week which doesn't seem like a ton, but is actually quite a bit of food.
