Are you embarrassed to trash dive in your neighborhood? I was walking Ally yesterday morning and happened upon a cute little kid’s kitchen. Now, my kid’s DO NOT need a kitchen, but it pained me to think this was going to sit in a landfill somewhere…wasting away. It’s totally un-necessary waste. It is missing the faucet and the sink, but that’s an easy fix!
So, Ally and I quickly walked home. I couldn’t get home fast enough. I was trying to beat the trash pick up and any other person who might try to score what I spotted first. I grabbed my keys and drove back slyly…making sure there were no other cars coming down the street. Then quickly got out, opened the back and tossed it gently in the truck. I did get snagged by a neighbor soccer mom driving a mini van. I’ve been to other neighborhoods and totally picked up furniture and not been embarrassed one bit! What is it about trash diving in your own community? Oh well, I did it. I scored and some other kid will benefit from me picking it up!
