Many people just throw away things instead of getting them repaired, I try to get the most from my possessions before I throw them - have them repaired and use till they are no longer usable.

Yes, I do. It's my attitude on things. Maybe it's because of my on-going curiousity since I've been a child. I would give up whenever it had a serious damage that it could not be repaired anymore.

You should have become an engineer then, it would suit your talent and nature.

Dear dbhattji, I have the habit of keeping the materials which are to be repaird. I never use to repair them but keep them in proper place. In case anything goes wrong I will immediately I will purchase replacement. Last month my water pump motor burned out. I got both motor and pump replaced. I am just keeping the old motor and pump for repairing. I do not know when I will repair. I need a mood to repair them till such time they will remain in out of order condition. In case of electronic articles I just throw or give to somebody because I do not believe in repairing radio, tape recorder and not TV.

yes, I agree, the electronic goods are now becoming cheaper and not worth the money or trouble to repair them, even their spare parts are not useful.

It depends on what item was damaged. There are some items where in it would be better if I will just purchase a new one instead of repairing. I would always try to calculate the price that was supposed to be spent before I decide whether to buy or just have it repaired.
