I discovered a huge surprise in my neighborhood trash bin as a dumpster diver mom. I find it incredible that people go to stores and make purchases.
A WOMAN has admitted that she frequently searches through bins and was recently completely astounded by what she discovered.
The 31-year-old Megan Godinez frequently uploads photos and videos of her “dumpster dive” finds to TikTok under the handle @megantheddmvp.
Megan, a stay-at-home mother from Dallas, Texas, USA, shares a home with her husband Andrew, Donovan, 11, Julianna, 9, Isla, 5, and Elias, 3, as well as their four children.
Being at home caused her to look for a hobby to keep her busy. Soon, she discovered dumpster diving, which she now does full-time.
The young woman frequently rummages through sizable bins outside of department stores to see what she can find, and she then posts her incredible finds to her social media followers.
Megan searched through a sizable bin outside an American Bath & Body Works store in one of her most recent videos.
However, Megan was left speechless when she opened the trash and discovered 29 bags filled with brand-new candles.
She posted a clip of her find with the caption, “Daaaayyuummm…I haven’t had a BBW score like this in a minute,” on social media. LET’S DO IT!
Holy moly, you guys, we’re about to get them all out.
“All 29 bags, look at all these candles.
“51 candles, unbroken.
“I have two lotions and a whole basket full of broken things.
“Thеsе arе going to bе on my wеbsitе nеxt Friday.
