All my adult life I try to use things as long as possible. Not only phones and other hw. I found out, that the best way to learn to appreciate value is to try to make it. To find out what effort is behind. Then you will see, that modern society consumption and western world prices are nonsense. Try make a t-shirt and ask yourself if you would sell it for $20. I recently decided to make a furniture from scratch. Here is my first attempt. Hopefully the last bed I will ever need. (140 work hours)
@sphyphes no I haven't. that would requite to master also basics of upholstery. not there yet :). currently I am working on one large piece for kid's room, that would serve as a bed+table+shelves
