Yesterday, David and Josh went to help Uncle Larry and Aunt Janet move some furniture out of a storage unit. As they were pulling up, a "National Potato Chip" truck was driving away from the dumpster inside the storage facility. I bet you know where this story is heading...LOL!
Yep, they went dumpster diving for chips! The potato chip company evidently rents a storage unit there too, and was discarding their old inventory. Which actually some were not out of date yet, and those that were, were just a few days old. Check out their stash they rescued from the dumpster below. Kevin and I were in town, and they were so excited, they took a picture of their loot on Josh's cell phone and sent it us. David climbed inside the dumpster and had to walk over, "tons and tons of cardboard!" Oh, the sacrifices we make for a good deal! LOL!
They brought all the chips back to my house and divied them up. Uncle Larry took the "hot" flavored chips, and this is what was left. Last night, David said that he was keeping one big bag of Doritos, and setting up a stand outside to sell the rest. But by morning, he had decided that "He loves his life right now!" ...and is eating chips as hard as he can before they expire!
David even got a huge bag of Funyuns onion rings just for me!
Now how's this for Dumpster Diving...
They probably didn't read the posted sign either! :)

I went yard saling and to the flea market this morning... which was a real "dive" today! LOL!
I did get the two medium size urns for $5. The lady was asking $10 for the set. I was tickled for that one good find. I hit the farmer's market after, and bought peanuts to boil, fresh okra, and pears to make a sauce with!
I'm off to start cooking! Boiled Peanuts are calling my name...my first for this year!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far! ~Rhonda :)
