What would people know if they looked in your trash?

Do you think it’s true you can find out a lot about your neighbor(s), just by looking at their trash?

Our next door neighbors just moved in a few weeks ago. Now, this is a brand-new, just built house.

The first weekend they were there, they pulled out carpet and had tile installed.

This morning, trash collection day, they had a bunch of empty boxes of hardwood floors out.

Now, I know this is horrible of me to think, but my first thought was, “They must have money”.

I mean, this is a brand-new, 2 story, 3 car garage house, and here they still have money to add tile and hardwood floors.

Yea, yea, maybe they had the money saved up in anticipation of the new home, but still, money is money.

What would the neighbors know by looking at my trash this morning?

Well, let’s see…

  1. They’d know we have a toddler girl by seeing the empty box of Fisher Price Kitchen
  2. They’d know we added shelves to her room
  3. They’d know we keep the rest of our trash in the bin

What would people know if they looked in your trash?
