A mom has ditched her job as a lunch lady in 2020 to become a dumpster diver, earning as much as $1,000 a week.
Thirty-two-year-old Tiffany Sheree, left her job when she discovered she could earn a lot more money elsewhere.
She decided to become a full-time dumpster diver, diving into other people's trash to sell old items, even going as far as finding unopened makeup products during her searches.
Tiffany has 4 children and 2 million followers on TikTok...
I HAVE A HUGE DVD COLLECTION THANKS TO THIS DUMPSTER! 😊 #DVDS #trashpanda #DUMPSTERDIVINGMAMA #wasted #dumped #BLESSED
And dumpster diving has been something the mom has been wanting to pursue for years.
"I'd never heard of or thought about dumpster diving before I randomly saw a video on YouTube of these girls dumpster diving," she said as per the New York Post. "When I saw the haul they came back with I knew I had to try it for myself."
So, the mom finally took the dive...
In 2017, she found $1,200 worth of makeup, and since then, she and her husband Daniel Roach, have taken up the career together, not only making it easy to pay the bills but also allowing the family to furnish their home with items they found in the trash.
"I've found bedsheets, pillows, blankets, towels, little odds and ends, even pet products like cat trees and dog cages," she said, explaining her dives.
And although Tiffany is happy with her lifestyle...
I STILL CANT BELIEVE WE FOUND ALL THESE TREADMILLS!! WE ARE A BOSS ASS TEAM @megantheddmvp 💪💪#DUMPSTERDIVINGMAMA #trashpanda #BLESSED #blowingup
Others have called it trash.
She's even had her videos removed from TikTok for reasons that include "illegal activities and unregulated goods."
But the hip, environment-loving mom, fought back...
She's claimed that if the products weren't fished out by her, they would have gone into landfills anyway.
"I'm happy that I'm saving items from landfills and doing my bit to help the environment and keep the planet clean," she said.
You do you, boo!
