Meat: how do you determine what is good and what is bad? Produce: if it is soft and mushy, is it salvageable? Eggs: do you know how the float test works? I recently had some friends go diving for the first time and they bombarded me with a list of questions that should be in a guide for newbies to dumpster diving.

First, anything that looks questionable should be tossed. Actually composted. Who doesn’t want free garden compost? Second, anything sealed is probably good. Dairy included. I have this thesis that yogurt never actually goes bad. We have a yogurt drawer at our house and we found yogurt we don’t remember diving.

Lastly, remember hand sanitizer. Driving with dumpster juice on you is never a good thing. God is Good 7/26/11
