The number of dumpster divers finding valuable goods in the garbage seems to increase by the day. 

For Angel, who goes by Mom The Ebayer on YouTube, instead of trash that might yield a profit, she found cold hard cash. 

While on a usual diving mission, the mom found 10 100-dollar notes rolled into a small container. 

"It's a blessing to have this, I'm grateful and excited," she said while vlogging. 

Returning home, she said that she would be donating and saving the $1000 (R16 592,40) she found.
