Taking care of things seems to be a lost art with our throw-away society. When it is cheaper to buy a new printer instead of ink, there’s a problem. When it is cheaper to buy a new lawn mower than fixing it, there seems to be something wrong. When buying a pressure washer set you back $1,000, you made sure you took care of it. It would last decades. Now that pressure washers can be picked up for a hundred or two, people just throw them in the landfill when they stop working after a year or so. I admit, I’m guilty of it too. Maybe if things cost more, we’d take care of them more.
