Take Care Of It

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.
