Just wondering if anyone has tried it; it's a great (and free!) way to get food, among other things. I know people will say it's unsanitary, but you can find a lot of good, fresh, unopened stuff in dumpsters behind grocery stores and markets. Tons of food and other things are thrown away for ridiculous reasons, such as dented cans or boxes, which have no effect on the quality whatsoever. So who here has done it? Any tips or stories?

Several of us do!

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

Maybe your search settings were for threads that have been updated in the past 30 days? That's the first thing that comes to mind. "Dumpster diving" as a searchable phrase comes up in multiple threads for me.

Yep, my search settings were overly specific so nothing came up. Thanks for telling me that; from now on I'll make sure I'm searching correctly.

Can't wrap my head around it for food. Other items I don't care about. One man's trash is another man's treasure.

No sweat! You're new, so there's certainly no expectation you're going to know everything. "Community Assistance" is the part of the forum for asking questions about how to use the forum or suggestions for making it better, in case you haven't noticed it yet.
