One thing that I guess I got from mom is about recycling. Mom recycles everything. When I was a kid I always complaint of having lots of stuff which I thought cannot be used anymore. From dress to, construction materials, to home furniture and even cabinets ,paints, brushes, used woods and almost everything that she thinks still can be use, she will keep it. Despite of all the mess around home, all of it has been used.Now that her stock is empty we need to buy new ones.
Now that we're renovating, I make use and recycled of our stalls and cabinets. Our cabinets were just new a year ago, the woods still good and because of a not so good and convenient outcome who made it we did not use it. Besides recycling and DIY projects saves us a lot. Though it maybe more of an effort, it 's all worth it since it's for our own house.
