Baby Step 58: Re-purposed Scraps Made into Projects

This baby step not only stretches your imagination but saves both money and keeps usable project material out of our landfills. I am always amazed at what is thrown out as garbage.

Look around – it’s everywhere! It’s not too difficult to find scrap building and gardening materials around the farm, garage or along side manufacturing facilities that are lying around or set out for disposal.

Simply find it – design it  – then build it. Turn trash into useful projects that will add many benefits to your homestead or backyard.


This three bin compost bin was built in just a few hours from salvaged pallets, boards and nails.

Take the baby step and ask – What’s on your project list and where can you find the materials to build them on the cheap?
