You have heard the saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Well it can be said of your’s truly. Nadine and I drove to Owasso to help my youngest daughter move from Oklahoma to Colorado. We have been packing box after box. Rolls of packing tape. Little boxes. Medium boxes. Large boxes. Picture boxes. You name it we have packed with it. Until we came to a mirror that was too big for any of our boxes that we had.
No problem. We called an Aaron’s furniture store and asked if they had any larger boxes. A woman answered the phone and said that if they had any boxes that we wanted, they would be in back of the store. We took off and within a few minutes we arrived at the back of the store to our surprise.
What they had done is that when they wanted to discard mattresses or couches or cardboard boxes, they just opened the back door and threw it out the back. It was the craziest thing to see discarded trash anywhere they could find a spot.
What we really wanted was a large cardboard box to fit the large mirrors in and so I had to go dumpster diving. To my surprise I found the treasure that I was looking for
As I said, “Someone’s trash is someone else’s treasure, namely mine. Where there is a will there is a way. On this journey, you never know where your next treasure will be. You sometimes need to be creative and think outside the box. Happy Hunting.
