Media clips & commentary featuring Empire of Scrounge author Jeff Ferrell
I've got the bug too. I own the Freecycle site in Memphis but I curb also. Here it's more of a suburban affair not too many dumpsters. Lots of driving around but I enjoy it. I Ebay a few items just for the heck of it. I figure I break even with the steep price of gas. I also have a shop full of tools and extra parts. Lots of bikes to the Hope Church outreach and crates and catch cages to the animal rescue groups. I have to leave a lot behind since I just don't have room. So much waste. It's a disposable society. My grown kids go with me, it's good quality time and they enjoy it. The girlfriend of one of my son's wants me to take them sometime.I guess treasure hunting is contagious.
