Life is expensive, we’re all feeling that in our bank accounts. Which means people are doing whatever possible to save some money here and there because it all adds up. And while I had heard of people dumpster diving I had no idea how many people were actually taking part in searching for treasures that had been thrown away. There is actually a Facebook group that has been assembled called Texas Dumpster Diving Friends. 

Obviously, I was intrigued so I had to look into this group and see what was being posted. Unfortunately, it’s a closed group and I don’t have access to see what information is being passed around but the description says it’s for people who love dumpster diving and finding cool stuff. But there were a few comments on the original post and people were bragging about finding laptop and desktop computers, TV’s, and even working video gaming systems.
