Re-purposing Furniture and Machinery

We rarely ever throw something out that might serve another purpose than originally intended. broken furniture gets taken apart, the usable stuff kept, the metal recycled and the wood (if not infused with fire retardant or otherwise toxic) piled for future use.

Metal items are taken apart and used in the garden to stake plants, as a support or to repair other items. machines are taken apart, screws, nuts and bolts, washers and springs gathered, what we use we keep, what we don't goes into a jar to sell cheap.

Engines are taken apart and used for scrap or repair. It's time and energy involved, but you can save hundreds of dollars, extend the life of some things that need minor repair, and even make some change. Besides, we don't need another dump site full of machines and furniture!
