Make Something!

by Handsome Matt

Instead of buying something, why not try and make it yourself.

Work Table, from Lowe's

Start small, maybe a few hanging shelves. Lowe’s releases a magazine every few months that has nothing but great ideas for home projects.

If you want to get really crazy: take the plans to a local hardware store instead of Lowes and purchase what you need there.

Then go home and start building.

Why do this? To remember that you have an impact in the world around you. You can make something beautiful and meaningful and lasting: if you choose to.

The next step is to understand that everything you do has an impact in the world around you.
