Fix it…

Mar 28, 2011 by

I’m a big fixer.   I fix things.  All sorts of things.   Cars, computers, camping gear, I always try to fix something before getting rid of it.  I recently found the Fixers Collective and I’m in love with the idea and wish it was in my area.

From their site:

Fixers’ Collective is a social experiment in improvisational fixing and mending

They get together each week and teach/help others fix their items.  How great is that?  I love the idea of teaching others the lost art of fixing.  Today everyone throws away their stuff just to replace it when they could be saving a lot of $$$ to simply fix the item.   This keeps these items out of the landfills and money in your pocket.  Brilliant.  If you are in the NY area, do check them out.
