It lifts our spirits, builds our confidence and sometimes makes us safer. The biggest drawback is that change is also very expensive, especially when you throw away your old stuff and buy new to replace it. That is where recycling comes in. Instead of throwing away your old stuff, try selling it. Instead of buying new stuff, try buying things that are gently used. Either way will result in having more spendable income.
