    I wasn't quite sure where to post this, but since almost all the dumpster divers I know either dive for food that is still edible, or for items that can still be used, (Even if they are in slight need of repair) I thought maybe this was the right place to post.

    Over the weekend, I was watching the news and they had a story about a young woman from New York City named Anna Sacks. (Manhattan area, I think. It least that what it looks like on the video they showed)

    Her handle on Instagram is #thetrashwalker, and she goes about the city emptying trash bags from store that don't lock up their dumpsters. The focus on this story was CVS Pharmacy, but, on her Instagram page, it seems that she is not limited to CVS, or any store(s) in general.

    If you dumpster dive, no matter what your purpose or reason, then I don't have to tell you about the treasures one can find.

    In this particular news story, this woman had found hundreds of dollars worth of food, vitamins, and various sundries all being thrown out by CVS that were still in their wrappers/packages, and could still be put to good use.

    A friend of hers even found a GUITAR in a dumpster that was in PERFECT CONDITION. (All one needed to do was PUT ON NEW STRINGS!)

    I think it might be a violation of the policies of this site to tell you to follow this person, as that might come across as an endorsement of sorts, but one might be surprised at one will find on her Instagram page.

    I mean SERIOUSLY? A PERFECTLY GOOD GUITAR THROWN IN THE TRASH BECAUSE SOMEBODY WAS TOO LAZY TO REPLACE THE STRINGS?

    IS THIS WHAT THE HUMAN RACE HAS BEEN REDUCED TO?

    Food for thought!
