Hi, My Name is Rori and I have a Coupon Problem

So today we, (and by we I mean my husband doing it and me cheering him on!) tried to do our first "Dumpster dive." for coupons. It was not so good!! First you can barley grab any, since it was so deep. But second we learned that police in our area frown on this. As the police car was pulling up all I could picture is us going to jail and this being my story....Some big scary guy saying..."What are you in for?" Me: "Oh nothing, just trying to support my coupon addiction." LOL All in all, not so good.
So just wanted to ask you. Have you had good luck with this or knew someone that has? What do you/they do? Is there a secret day to go? Anyone live in the WA area that does this? Where do you go?
Thanks guys for all your help!


  1. You are to funny Rori. I have no experience in dumpster diving yet! I think about it all the time though. Have you gone on Sunday night or Monday morning after they throw the Sunday papers away.

    I'm on vacation right now, but when I get back home I am going to the newspaper office and see if they will just give me the coupon sections from the papers.

  2. I don't know about other states but here in WA. It is actually illegal to dumpster dive. But I knew a lady who did it for clothes and shoes,and she went when the store was closed. She got quite a bit of stuff. Anywhere from a CD player to shoes she got it, and didn't get caught. However I was her lookout for police or other people.
