33-year-old Stacy Cole from Utah has an unusual hobby: she cooks from products that she finds in the garbage — and assures that her four children are completely delighted with all the dishes.

According to Stacy, in the garbage you can find everything you need — from food to soap and jewelry for the party. For a woman, this is not only a hobby, but also a way to save money: in a month, Cole manages to reduce costs by $50-$300.

MWD Features. Stacy says her kids love the food.

Stacy was born in a poor family and from childhood used to protect everything to the last cent. To make ends meet, her mother and father learned to use even other people’s garbage — and not bad at it succeeded.

“Parents worked hard for everything we had, and it made things only more valuable. — the woman recalls — they created a wonderful life for all of us From waste.”

When she grew up, she picked up the habit.

“It didn’t seem right to do what they taught me. — explains Cole — Besides, I never understood those who are used to mindlessly spend money.

Stacey’s first husband did not share her views, and in the end, their differences ended in divorce. Now she is married to Danny — who fully supports the woman in all endeavors. Children — 12-year-old river, 10-year-old Molly, 8-year-old Thomas and 6-year-old Wesley — are also delighted with the creative approach of the mother. The woman assures that carefully sterilizes all new acquisitions and never uses the missing products.

“We’re very frugal, — Cole adds,” and we’re not ashamed of digging through the trash looking for things that add color to our lives.”

The family does not take home everything they find in the garbage. Some of the finds they sell online or at flea markets, something to give friends, and something — donate to charity.

“I hope that my example will prove that living simply and frugally is no worse — and maybe even better — than wasting money. — says Stacy — <…> I help the needy, reduce the amount of waste. I would like others to understand how incredible life can be if you show a little ingenuity.”
