Elmer’s Fix It or Toss It Week – Oct. 11 – 15th (Giveaway)11:59 AM
My house can get pretty cluttered. Most of it is toys, books, games, office supplies, or laundry. The rest is a mixture of items that I don't know what to do with -- many things are broken, and I don't know whether I should try to fix them (or rather have my husband work on them) or just toss them into the trash.
As the price of consumer goods get more affordable, we sometime struggle with whether it's best to keep something to fix or to just let it get put into the recycling bin. Just because we can afford to replace it, doesn't mean we shouldn't try to make it usable again. (A recent example is my favorite coffee mug. While I can't wash it in the dishwasher, I was able to at least salvage it as a planter by gluing a broken handle back on.)
Do you have an item in your home that you're on the fence about whether to Fix It or Toss It? You're in luck! Over the next week (Oct 11 - 15th) we will be participating in Elmer's Fix It or Toss It Week. We'll be providing tips, scenarios, and opportunities to learn about how you can use Elmer's products to make your trash treasures again! (You can follow Elmer's for all the fun via their Elmer’s Facebook page and Twitter handle.)
We are having our own giveaway to kick things off. In addition to joining us next week for our Fix It or Toss It event, you can share your scenarios of an item that you're unsure whether to fix it or toss it in the comments below! (If you decide to talk about it on Twitter, please include #FallFixIt and #fixortoss)
We will pick three scenarios to win an Elmer's prize pack full of products to help you in your future fixing endeavors!! Also, some scenarios will be featured on the Elmer's Facebook page! Be sure to check in with us next week to see our scenarios, as well as to see if you've won!
