Went Dumpster Diving Today

August 25th, 2010 at 02:30 pm

Well sort of. Before you get sick: I'll explain. Our county gives us large blue recycling bins on wheels that are collected every two weeks.

I had 2 CVS ECB rewards. One was for $5.00 and the other was for $2.50. The last I looked they were no where in my purse. I had been decluttering paper for the last week and a half so I went through everything in my house.

I put my plastic gloves on and went through my recycling bin today. My bin is pretty clean because I put all bottles in tied up recyclable bags and the paper is by itself. Nothing there. I gave up and went inside and went to the website and asked if you can get credit for lost ECB's . NO NO NO So, hold on to them. I finally had decided to give up and just call it a lesson. Way into the afternoon I looked under the couch in my office and saw a white paper ther. Guess what My two ECB's paper clipped together.

The $5. was such a sweet one because a lady in front of me didn't have a CVS card and I lent her mine, and she got the sales and I ended up with $5. ECB. She couldn't usse it because my name was on it and you need a card to redeem it. Relieved that I found it.

    I don't think it is considered dumpster diving if you're trying to reunite with your OWN stuff. Nothing sick about that all!

    Yeah, nothing yucky about that. I would not even have bothered with the gloves for my recycling. Everything I put in is clean before it goes in. Glad you found your ECBs. I was nearly driven crazy looking for a wooden toy dog on wheels (don't ask) yesterday. I looked in my recycling, too, just because I'm absent minded enough to drop it in there.

    OMGosh too funny. Sounds like something I would do. I actually found a floppy disk in the dryer once that I had been looking for. I still have no idea how it got there!
