Thrifty Thursday - Dumpster Pools

Yes, in fact, you did hear me right...pools constructed from reclaimed dumpsters! A new concept spurred on by a movement called New Urbanism. I ran across this site with several videos which sucked me in and before I knew it a few hours had passed and I was still watching the videos.
Of course, not all the videos are about dumpsters because although it's interesting, who could really watch that for a few hours. Lots of interesting ideas spring from the New Urbanism movement including farms on tops of roofs in big cities where land is scarce, a traveling trailer which has plants inside of it (trailer park!), and many other interesting videos await.
So here is the link below, but fair warning you could easily get sidetracked!


  1. Thanks for sharing such a wicked link!! I was watching a video recently about a floating garden - a group put togther this amazing garden on a boat in new york so that they could maintain it once the winter months came by floating it somewhere warmer. I love that idea!

  2. that is an amazing idea and so innovative!
