We’re in prime yard sale season and this is a great time to get gently used items for a great deal. The best way to live green and reduce your carbon footprint is to simply reuse things that others may not have a use for any longer. Yard sales, second hand stores, and even flea markets are great places to find furniture, kitchen tools, clothes, bags, and so much more at reduced prices.
And a lot of times, with a little TLC, these items can be turned into treasures for your home. A dresser and bedroom set can be repainted or refinished to match your décor. A couch and loveseat can be reupholstered to create a new look. Just keep an open mind, a keen eye, and a sense of adventure and you never know what you’ll find that can make treasure from someone else’s junk!
