Well, I am suddenly looking forward to going on a dumpster dive after my find yesterday. I have an Office Depot, a Best Buy and a Target within about 2 minutes of me. I also have a Barnes & Noble nearby which may be ok.

I think I am going to start at night as I don't know how ready I am to admit dumpster diving. Plus, I thought that it may be a better time as stuff probably is thrown away near closing.

That said, has anyone had the cops called on them? For instance, driving behind the Office Depot will look really suspicious because of its location. The Best Buy will be easy, but I don't know what I'll find. I don't think that Target would be a big deal, and the Barnes & Noble dumpster wouldn't look remotely like I'm robbing the place.

If an officer comes, I guess I'll just tell them what I am doing and say that I sell stuff on Ebay. Hopefully that will be enough, though it would be pretty awkward.

Also, out of the stores I mentioned, what would you suggest I go to first?
