Trash Picking Two Day Slump

I have found nothing the last two days. Not even anything on the top ten most frequently found trash items. Ok, one lampshade, but I can only have so many extra – see prev post on commonly found items .   I’m not complaining, it’s just rare – one day with nothing isn’t so surprising, but two days in a row is a first.   My Friday morning route has been pretty bad the past couple of weeks too!  I chalk it up to everyone being preoccupied with the last week of school, graduation, and a few hot & humid days.   I predict the picking will be pretty good in the next couple of weeks as the kids will be off to help around the house…that’s my theory anyhow.   I don’t have a theory on why the Friday route’s been lackluster, I’m hoping it picks up, as this route is where I’ve scored a lot of keepers.  The pics above are a few previously found items on the Friday route.

I have a few theories as to why some routes are good for some things like gardening/yard stuff , and others yield good solid vintage furniture, boxes of attic & basement items, general household, etc.  When you drive around looking for finds, you get a lot of thinking time in, so I consider these pretty good working theories.   I started breaking it down by my routes, & it will make the next post.

How about you?   What’s a good find for you?   Do you have a spot or neighborhood where you always score a good trash pick or dumpster find?

  2. I have a wonderful area of the city where we love to go. I usually hit it Sunday or Monday nights. I haven’t gotten my demographics down to a T, but I know where I will usually find certain things.

    I’m addicted and can;t stop. I love it.
