Wowza Heather! Who's boss? You boss!

I've done a bit of dumpster diving. Sadly, the closest natural food store to my house has a dungeon style dumpster. Totally locked :(. Gotta check TJs though!

Way to prevent waste & save money.  Amazing.

heck yeah! none of its ever organic, cuz i live in a small town with few options, but i'm always pulling fruit out of the dumpster.

Yeah seriously - When most people think of when they hear dumpster diving.  Everything is so fresh and TJ's dumpster is so clean. The produce is in a separate bags, away from any trash wrapped up nicely for the takin'. It's just stacks and stacks of clean food protected inside bags and their containers. I go once a week at night before trash day. If i had gone into the store that morning, all this food would still be for sale! Insane!

Heather, I can't believe how good this stuff looks. I guess I would've thought once it got dumped in the dumpster that  it would all break open and be worthless/smashed etc.  I guess too, I thought that it would be mixed with rather crappy stuff and then make it hard to pick out good stuff.  Amazing how this stuff looks so fresh and fine.

Woah, sweet a feature :D Thanks for the love guys! <333 I got this one night behind a Trader Joes store.

Chris - Haha Indeed I am the DDin' Queen! I'll be more than happy to share with you if you ever come up north ;)! Or better yet, you could just come diving with me!

Joni - Hah, at least they're honest. Most stores try to lie to me when I bring it up "Oh, we donate it all to this one man, he has a bunch of horses." "Oh yeah, we give it to a rabbit breeder" BS, I go to the back of the store later on and guess what, it's all in there! This "bad economy"  is the result of the disturbing amount of waste that goes on in America.

The best place to find good produce, is in the back of medium chain health-food grocery stores. If the store is too big, it'll have a compactor, if it's too small, there won't be many good items there. This particular score was in the back of a store called "Trader Joes"... actually, it's quite often I find this big of a score there. and sometimes I'll go to this place called "Aldi" and a store called "A-Market"

Legend!

Wow!!  Yes, please share where you found this. We'll be all dumpster diving with you for sure. 
I can't believe what people throw away.  Especially in this economy. It's crazy.  I've often wondered  how much the grocery stores throw away.  Once I asked about discounting the stuff "starting to go" (ripe to us).  They said, we don't do that , we just chuck it.  Really??  Sick world, eh?
