Howdy, y'all! My name is Mike and I absolutely love scavenging for free stuff, random treasures, lost valuables and other interesting artifacts.

In a nutshell, I ‘m an avid dumpster diver, scrapper, picker, treasure hunter and underwater connoisseur. I prowl the city streets in search of dumpster loot, curbside treasures & scrap metal as well as scour the river bottoms for lost valuables during the summer months when I can scrounge up enough money for gas. Be sure to stay subscribed to stay up to date with my latest expeditions, y'all!

you battling those filing cabinets reminded me of my big score today on my way home from wataburger. on the side of the highway I found a aluminum 4 panel 2 car garage door. Heavy as all get out and still all together. This old man struggled with it for seems like 15 minutes just trying to get it in the truck. then it was sticking out the back about 3 feet so had to strap it down for the 5 mile ride home. great score but it was a battle.

Hey Mike!
Love you videos
We're always seeing you pick up old tool cases. It makes me wonder. Do you get anything for them? You must sell them. A lot of construction crews throw them out as soon as they get the new tools.

Haven’t seen one of those clown hose attachment toys in a long time. It’s missing the hat that Would shoot in the air.

Those dry erase boards make great signs for yard sales and stuff. Keep on keepin on.

I normally don't like clowns as a collectibles genre, but a vintage one? Okay. Saved from the trash? Oh, heck, yeah. Hope the dogs love it.

Been watching you for about a month now, and I can't go a garbage day now without looking at the piles and thinking, There's some Scrappitty Scrap! lol, Maybe if I get a place with more space I can scrap myself one day... I'm in Canada, so no future competition for you! lol

That bamboo wood tray fits over your bath and the bit that folds out is for your iPad tablet .... the ends pull out so they can fit any size bath ... great find I bought one here in the uk for £30 so I’m guessing around $40 ?
