Woman explains how she's 'significantly sped up' journey to early retirement - 'Extreme'

Asia's Tech News Daily

The American woman says she chooses to do this because she’d like to retire in her thirties and she wants to expose the huge amount of food that is wasted in America.

Known to her followers as Dumpster Diving Freegan on TikTok, the woman remains anonymous but says she works in the banking industry.

She adds that she has a well paid job, but ‘dumpster diving’ allows her to save a huge amount of money on food that is perfectly good enough to eat.

In a video on her social media, she said: “I have a really extreme financial goal where I want to retire in my forties or even my thirties.

“It’s something I’m working towards, and dumpster diving has allowed me to speed up that progress significantly.”

The FIRE movement, which stands for Financial Independence, Retire Early, has gained huge momentum over the last ten years.

It advocates living on less and going without material things so people can retire much earlier than the typical pension age.

And, although it doesn’t suggest going to these extremes, it works for Dumpster Diving Freegan who also gives some of the money she makes to charity.

“In addition to making and saving money through dumpster diving, I am also able to donate and help other people more so than if I were to just donate my money,” she added.

If you watch my videos, you know just how crazy the food waste is in America.

“Everything I find is within a five-mile radius of my home, so just imagine how much worse it is across the US.”

“There are a lot of assumptions made about dumpster divers, and when people think of what a dumpster diver is, they don’t think of a mid-twenties, white, blonde chick getting into dumpsters, that’s not the image that goes in their head.”

Although she receives some criticism, lots of her fans are really supportive.

It seems that ‘dumpster diving’ is more popular in America, but it’s not unheard of in the UK.

In 2018, university student Sophie Bridgman told the press how she managed to live for weeks without spending any money by salvaging food from bins.

The 27-year-old, from Bangor in North Wales, began taking food from supermarket bins when she returned to university to study for a master’s degree in Manchester.

She said she found lots of food thrown out by supermarkets that was still fit for consumption, some of it well within its sell by date.

These days people may not need to go to such extremes.

Apps like Too Good To Go stop food from being wasted by selling it at a much cheaper price.

Local food businesses sign up and let them know what is left over at the end of the day.

Residents can then reserve it on the app and buy it for a much lower price, thus stopping it from going to landfill.
