Interesting article, so glad to see you mention Habitat. Other than items they can use in the homes they build, they often have a "ReStore" that will take all sorts of items (I think just about anything but clothes). We're remodeling a 75 year old Bungalow, so they are invaluable for matching old trim, doors, random hardware, etc. All sorts of building supplies that are still quite usable, that are probably the product of a remodeling job in the area. And, it's way closer to our house than the "home improvement" store in our town, so there's the gas and time savings too!

That has to be my one biggest complaint about all of these remodeling/crashing/design shows that are all on right now, they never talk about the option of recycling...none of them, that I have ever seen...even the ones talking about "green remodeling"! I just don't get it, perhaps the starry eyed home owner with a sledge hammer in their hand makes for "better TV", but its such a shame and a lost opportunity to do some educating.

So, thank you for the great idea book...it's as if you were in my living room yesterday and heard me yelling at the TV. :-)

Gifts! No more gifts from anyone. Those things make you feel guilty if you don't use them or hang them on the wall, even if you never liked them. We have donated so many, it's crazy. Make a "no more gifts" policy with family and friends.
