"Damned in the Book of Genesis, declared untouchable in the Book of Leviticus, shunned by cultures around the world, we're scavengers. We're trash-pickers. We're treasure-hunters. Bargain shoppers. Beachcombers. Recyclers. Freecyclers. Sample-sifters. Coupon shoppers. Swappers. Wherever we are, wherever we go, we find ways to not shop. We don't steal. We don't scam. But we don't pay full price. We don't pay at all if we can help it."
-Anneli Rufus and Kristan Lawson, from The Scavenger's Manifesto, p. ix
