I’m all for frugality…

…but this is going just a tad bit overboard

For frugalists, bargain hunting is a lifestyle
For these extreme anti-consumers, your trash is their food, furniture

I will admit to getting things that are sitting by the dumpster, or even on someone’s curb. But I draw the line at getting my food from the dumpster.

What’s the best “free” thing you’ve picked up? I got a desk once at an apartment complex.

    I got a high table with a glass top. It turned out to be the perfect size and height for my tv.

    And I’m with you, eating food out of the garbage is nasty.

    I’ve gotten some pretty awesome free stuff, too. We have a couple of free tables & lamps. I’m not ashamed to say that I take stuff others think is junk. However, I’m not sure I would ever get food out of the trash :o)

    Hey, freecycle.com. Free stuff, to get or to get people to take your crap! Try it.
