Freakin Freegans



There was an article in the New York Times about Freegans. Their beliefs are based on limited consumerism and minimal consumption. Dumpster diving for unused stuff is part of the strategy. If you need free stuff, come to my house and I'll let you shop in my pantry, closet and discard pile. People were featured on Oprah showing stuff they had scored. Flowers, furniture, food. "The meal-had been totally made from refuse"...All I have to say is ...what the freak?! If you want trash join me watching The Trashelor tonight.
On a note of consumerism...http://suneday.blogspot.com is just for fun!http://citified.blogspot.com and this is glamorous!

All the food in my fridge is from your dumpster. I started digging in your dumpster a couple months ago hoping to find some cute clothes...then I realized how much great food you throw away. That chicken last week was delicious! I like a good deal like every other gal, but I am NOT going to voluntarily put my hand in anyone's garbage can!

OK Sunshine is cracking me up - but seriously i'm on my way over, just leave the front door open if you won't be there and if you're missing sour cream or shoes, it was probably me :)
