Winter of 08 as I started college before my financial aid came in I was hurting for funds.
Being a savvy thinker I decided to dumpster dive for cans and bottles to have money for gas.
It turned out I lived near an apartment complex where a lot of really neat things were being thrown away still perfectly usable.
I would dress in old clothes and shoes wearing kitchen gloves to keep my hands clean.
My haul included:
- A grocery paper bag full of Variety Puzzle Books
- A desk lamp and organizer
- Cute strapy sandals
- Those amazing shiny red shoes
- A large extra thick girly colored comforter (shown under the shoes)
Such odd blessings when all I wanted was enough money to fuel my car. lol
I gathered things for weeks on different days. The day I found the sandals and the red shoes I saw one red shoe and the other was no where to be found. The sandals I seemed to find in pairs so something told me the other red one was in there some where. I couldn't give up they are so darling.
Finally sweet success!
