Yoga Instructor Reveals How She Gets Many Of Her Meals Free.

Resourceful

For obvious reasons, most people are absolutely revolted by the thought of getting food out of the trash can. But not Renae! Actually, Renae was pretty curious about it. “I’ve never been a germaphobe, and I highly value resourcefulness, so it was easy for them to convert me,” she explained.

Perfectly Good Food

Before you judge or become grossed out, keep reading because things aren't always as they seem. While most people would assume that dumpsters are full of slimy, rotting food, Renae actually discovered the opposite. Grocery stores and restaurants actually throw away perfectly good food still in the packages. They also throw away fresh veggies or fruit every single day just to make room for new inventory.

High-Quality Food

Every single time Renae jumped into a dumpster, she would come out ready to eat like a queen. Renae would open up garbage bags that were filled to the brim with high-quality, expensive food that she could never afford to buy for herself. All of the food was still good, but it was on its way to rot in a landfill!

Saving Money

Renae could immediately see the impact that dumpster diving was having on her wallet. Renae chose to dumpster dive several times a week instead of going to the grocery store, and it significantly reduced her bills. In fact, Renae save around $200 every single month!

Traveling To Ten States

Thanks to all of that extra money, Renae and her husband, Yoav, have been able to spend money on other things, like traveling! Using their upgraded tiny home van to get them around, the couple has been to ten states, from South Dakota to Texas, and they’ve jumped into many dumpsters along the way.
