Last year a Texas woman quit her job as a server at a canteen. She opted for an alternative career path and now makes thousands of dollars as a dumpster diver.

A mother-of-four decided to spend all of her time looking through dumpsters after she realized just how much money she could make from it.

She purportedly made $1,000-a-week from all of the discovered goods she was able to resell. Thanks to a YouTube video, Tiffany She'ree, 32 from Dallas, heard about the unconventional job that changed her life.

HER FIRST DUMPSTER DIVE

The mother and her husband Daniel Roach, 38, now go dumpster diving together. In 2017, during She'ree's first dumpster attempt, she struck gold and stumbled upon a box of brand new makeup.

It was valued at close to $1,200. She went back home and showed Roach. The very next day, the two of them set off on a mission, and they haven't stopped since then.

HUNTING FOR VALUABLES

She'ree shared more about this occupation and how she got into it. She said: "I'd never heard of or thought about dumpster diving before I randomly saw a video on YouTube of these girls dumpster diving."

While most of She'ree's dumpster hauls are met with positive feedback, there are a few people who are disgusted by her job.

She added that she instantly knew she needed to try it for herself. Now, the couple has been diving into dumpsters for 5 years. They hunt for goods locally and also venture into new areas to try and find as many valuable items as possible.

ONLINE REACTION

The exploit initially started as a side job and an extra way to bring in some money. However, in 2020, She'ree took the plunge and quit her day job once and for all.

On her Instagram page, @dumpsterdivingmama, She'ree chronicles her dumpster adventures with netizens. Commenters often applaud her for what she does. One user even called her "the coolest ever!!!"

NO TRESPASSING

Netizens wanting to take up a similar occupation also comment on her page frequently. Many point out that the dumpsters in their area are sadly prohibited.

One user shared: "I'm not sure if it's legal to dive in my area, but I did try to scope out a place, but it says no trespassing." Another person added: "Where my store is, [they] don't allow dumpster diving. Bummer."

DISGUSTED BY HER JOB

Despite this, She'ree still manages to find places where she can dive. In an Instagram photo posted this month, she revealed that she had a successful hunt. The post was captioned: "Massive Burlington haul last night! 4 bags full!"

While most of She'ree's dumpster hauls are met with positive feedback, a few people are disgusted by her job. In a recent post, she showed viewers a message someone sent her.

"COPS ARE WATCHING"

An anonymous user called She'ree "disgusting" and said they hoped she would "get busted soon." They also warned her that the cops were watching because she was selling rubbish to unsuspecting people.

Commenters reacted to the message, and many told She'ree to ignore the haters. One user said: "I love everything I've gotten from you and will continue to order as long as you'll ship to me!"
