        It breaks my heart to watch one of the DIY kitchen remodels where they take a sledge hammer to the old cupboards. I would like to suggest that they remove them and donate them to a Habitat for Humanity or a ReStore where they can be used to help someone who can't afford new cupboards. I've seen some decent cupboards go into the dumpster (and then our landfills) that could be reused.

        some shows stress reuse... Sweat Equity has been promoting it, and of course, Rehab Addict goes the other direction and furhishes the house in reconstruction from reuse sources. one episode from this season, in fact, we see bathroom pieces leaned against the dumpster for somebody to take... and two scenes later, Nicole is diving her own dumpster because somebody put several dozen new slate tiles in it. and the front entry light, sitting on top of her junk, gets sprayed and reused.

        sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
