Today as part of our repair,reuse and recycle plan we are going to choose a tool box to hold our tools. We have been talking about choosing a tool box that is the right fit and we already have our two spools of thread ready for it. No doubt your Great Grandmother had a tool box. What it was called, what it held and what it was made of would have depended where she originally came from. It could have been made of paper, straw, wood or a woven material. It might have been called a mending kit or a sewing basket. Below is the type used my Grandmother.
This is a very smart box which appears to hold everything
You can use a paper bag or box
We have been duped into believing it was acceptable to use something for a short time and then discard it. It isnt acceptable. It is depleting the planet of resources making a few very wealthy and taking away our power. From now on you decide what you want to keep. If you want to get rid of something, give it to the charity of your choice or sell it. If you love it but it needs repair, repair it(I will show you how in the coming weeks). It is important to be prepared and having the tool box handy and ready to go is the first step. This way there is no time-wasting or frustration with searching for the right tool.
