You know I live with a hoarder, right?
I’d love to show you a picture of the inside of our garage, but I fear the judgment.
It really does look like a
jumble sale Aladdin’s Cave in there.
Although Mr Green promises everything has a use and purpose and will come in useful ‘one day’, I have my doubts.
I rather suspect we end up with MORE stuff because he can’t find anything, so we buy duplicates.
And I suspect that when he’s six feet under I’ll be left with an awful lot of decluttering to do.
But, ya know, the world would be a boring place if we all agreed on everything.
This week Zero Hero Brenda wrote to me to tell me how you can recycle old tools and help other people in the process!
Tools for Self Reliance (TFSR) need old tools and even Singer sewing machines. They service them then send to India or Africa to help people help themselves. You’ll find a list on their website of the tools they need.
The list includes plumbing tools, arc welders, building tools, electrical repair tools, heavy duty drills, bench grinders, heavy duty spades and shovels – the list goes on and on. Perfect for a serious declutter or if you’re taking part in #DumpYourJunk; so do check it out.
Brenda wrote “Go to their website and they will put you in touch with a go between who will collect your items. I have done it and it worked perfectly smoothly.”
Have you ever used Tools for Self Reliance or do you know of any other ways to get rid of old tools?
