Hi my friends. how would you do with your old things or waste things? Do you just threw them away? Or you just put them into the place where can not influence the daily life?Do you agree with the idea that Waste not, want not? As far as I am concerned, I think I can not agree with this idea,which will advocates people to waste our life.I think it can be a crime.

The question would be is to waste or not to waste. There are some trash in our house that needs to be thrown in the garbage can...there's also some part of our life that we need to discard or change. But it's altogether a fatal sin if we start wasting our life for something that still has hope or something that we an still work out fine.

Yeah, thank you so much for your help here. I think the waste things may not be the waste thing, sometimes they are so useful for our daily life.Have a nice day.

There are certain things that need to be thrown away in our lives, but there are also things that are no longer useful to us that don't particularly need to be thrown away. I will throw away those things which no longer serve a purpose to us or to anyone else. However, with those things that still have a practical use for someone, I will either sell them in a yardsale or through Craigslist or I will donate them to a charity that will put those things to use.

I do not believe in wasting things. Things are way to expensive to be throwing them away. Maybe people who do this has more money than i do, lol. Hope they do anyway.

Well, I don't think waste not,want not.But I don't think throw away the old things is wasterful.When there are something I needn't use again,I will surely throw them out the first time.I don't want the garbage takes up the space.I think that's the really wasting.
