Instead of always buying new items for your home, think about visiting flea markets, secondhand stores, and garage sales. You may pick up a few bargains and contribute to reducing waste. I know I hate to throw something away if I think I will have a use for it later. At my online shop LaTrice Designs, I reuse everything I can when I make my accessories. I sort of feel like a pack rat but more times than none I can usually find a use for all of my stuff sooner or later. OR (on the flip side) if you absolutely cannot find anything to do with your items and you need to De-clutter, donate them or give them away to someone who can use them.
