The Stay at Homer
For the Stay at Homer that treats running the house like a job, reuse is the way to go. So much of running a household can be maximized with a reuse philosophy. A Stay at Homer looks at their growing kid and thinks “if they outgrow a shirt before it wears out isn’t it smarter to buy a used shirt?” The Stay at Homer thinks repair, not replace when an appliance or yard tool stops working. A Stay at Homer reuses because they know that saving money, and the planet are great values to teach their family members.
