I met another dumpster diver and she pulled a knife, but don’t worry, she just wanted my grapefruits 8) check out Crazy Family Tube’s Diving Channel and Shout out 1MightyR channel
Follow along with my adventures in dumpster diving and whatever I decide to do in the future.
Just a caution about dumpster diving. Check local ordinances for legalities in your area.
I am now working as a full-time reseller. I may decide to start bidding on storage auctions or buying pallets as well. I hope to eventually do some travelling, meet some other divers, and continue making new videos about corporate waste, trash picking, rubbish rummaging, garbage finds, curbside scouting, scrapping, salvaging, foraging, freeganism, saving money, selling and exploring. Other interests I hope to pursue: hunting for rocks, gems, metal detecting, artifact hunting, and all types of treasure hunting as I really dig it, you dig?
I love watching other people’s adventures on youtube in anything relating to exploring, especially abandoned places, so I may dabble in it myself some day.
I’ve noticed more recently, diving for food can save tons of money, mainly thanks to Aldi.
Almost everything I get is free now that I’ve gotten back into diving. I was having transportation issues for a while, so I didn’t get to go out much. I am saving money to put a down payment on a house in a good location for having yard sales. I also want a box truck. And a moped.
For anyone stuck in a rut without enough money right now, you need to start peeking in those dumpsters. If caught, you could say I am looking for some bubble wrap and a few boxes, which won’t be a lie as you’ll be needing it to store and ship the goods you find.
There are dry days now and then, but usually it’s a ton of free stuff. How well you do depends on location.
Where to look for free things.
Scrap or valuables can be found in any dumpster, personal belongings, ect.

Thanks for reading. I am finally getting around to typing up a template description that I can use with each upload. Here it is ^^
I don’t spend much time on Facebook, but I’d like it if you send me a friend request at
To the rare person that complains and dislikes youtubers that put this info out there, stop being selfish, look for other ways of making a living, and realize there’s millions of dumpsters full of perfectly good products heading to the landfill that you can’t find, store and use yourself.
People should be informed. The corporations should be exposed. I don’t care if they see my videos and decide to lock the dumpsters, as that can of worms was opened a decade ago on youtube. They should be donating. They don’t. And we are helping to get the word out. Most of us express appreciation for having access to it. Where to dumpster dive doesn’t need to be a big secret.
