There are countless good reasons why you should repurpose your old things so that they are useful in your current life. For one, it’s practical as a money-saving project as well as for redecorating or refurbishing. Second, you’re doing your part for the environment by not encouraging the production of more junk on earth. Thirdly, this gives you a chance to be experimental by exploring new uses for old items.
