    Ya, thats gross. I guess I've never thought diving in a dumpster for items a college student had just finished using. If a college student doesn't want it, no one probably wants it.

    Told her I didn't like her dog, she told me if I can't accept her dog, I can't accept her. Boom, we stopped talking.
    My old best friend/roommates gf had a dog like this and I put it in the yard for 6 hours while they were gone because they decided to leave it at the house while they went to decorah. Needless to say words were had. I made sure it had water but other than that ignored it. She was ******.

    Yep, exactly. It was probably already a hand-me-down in the first place from someone who thought it was beyond the point of being used, if it's in the hands of a college student. It's not getting better from there.

    The only time I would dumpster dive was when I lived by this art gallery-type place where they would do pottery. I would stop by the dumpster every once in a while to see if threw out any sweet stuff because it wasn't up to their standards. I still have a couple pieces of pottery from there.

    Guess I am the only cheap bastard here. Ah well. Some of it is actually pretty good. I think some of them just don't have the room to take it home.

    I remember seeing perfectly good wood lofts thrown in the Friley dumpsters. Kids didn't have room to take it home. Neither did we or we probably would have snagged it.


    new signature ideas needed; inquire within

    I remember seeing those back in my day as well. Also, notebooks (the paper kind), pens, pencils, furniture, etc. Most likely had more stuff than when they came to college and no more storage space in the car to haul it.

    We just moved into our first house and the previous owners left us 3 school lockers in the basement (gonna fix them for video game storage leading into my man cave). I also found 5 Michael Jordan basketball cards in a toolbox that they left - 2 of them were rookie cards

    Re: Friday QOTW 8/1 - Move Out Best Find

    I found an Iowa state folding table/ beer pong table. It is pretty sweet and actually function more than a pong table. I was impressed with myself. 2 years ago I found a beer bending machine. It worked too. Had a miller lite logo. Pretty sweet. Also found a few lawn mowers and weed eaters etc that work.

    My wife is a dumpster diva. She knows exactly where to go and finds great stuff. My favorites from this year are a couple of folding tables to use for tailgating.
