Here’s a great way to make some extra money! (Follow this advice only where this activity is legal.)
The other day I hauled a load of dead branches and stumps to the local landfill. While tossing debris from the back of my truck, I noted that there was a whole lot of interesting and potentially valuable garbage strewn about the dump. I took a few minutes, once my truck was empty, to pick through the trash. I found the following:
A very nice wooden stool with a broken leg.
A very expensive vacuum cleaner, broken and with no cord.
A bent umbrella.
A cracked aquarium.
A dozen or so bits of beautiful mud-covered stained glass.
A toilet seat.
Some sort of fancy electronic equipment that I haven’t yet identified.
A ton of slightly moldy magazines.
A very small roll of brand new green shag carpeting.
Plastic bags containing what appears to be an extensive collection of sparkly rocks.
Several pretty old shoes.
A few more interesting things I haven’t yet identified.
So far, I’ve made nearly 3 dollars!
