I’m a strong proponent of this.
I’ve been fixing stuff my entire life. Why throw something out that is 95% alright when only 5% of it is broken?
My idea of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle continues on with the RRR theme –
- Repair Renovate (so long as you’re not like those home reno people on TV who bash the hell out of perfectly good cabinetry with a sledge hammer and pitch it all into a Smithrite)
and many, many more.
