My husband didn’t want to go out diving last night. I insisted we go. We found some good stuff last night.

1 bottle of vodka (very good for steeping liquers and tinctures).
5 bottles of root beer
1 bottle of shirley temple drink
2 bottles of lime juice (love lime juice in my diet coke). Also good for a Cuba Libre which I use Malibu Rum, Coke Zero and a swig of lime juice.

Our first dumpster was full of makeup, lotion, shower gel and shampoo. Unfortunately this time, an employee dumped all the products into the box, soaking the box, thereby rendering it useless for anyone to use. Now dumped into a landfill for nothing. That really drives me nuts.

Did some curbside recycling today. Unfortunately in this economy there are many foreclosures and evictions. Most of the time the landlords will throw the stuff out on the curb for the garbage company to pick up later. We stopped by an eviction today and retrieved a beautiful glass platter (had fruit designs), a fairly new cutting board and a desk organizer (for the inside) with some cool stuff in it. A bookmark (made with a paperclip on a metal clip), a couple of good scissors (the good sturdy ones made years ago, not just some cheap China crap) and a few paper clips.

Curbside recycling is a good start for those who want to start diving without skulking behind an alley. You’d be amazed at the stuff you’ll find.
