  • Return unused items

    More often than none, you’re left with unused and unopened items. Return them.  New projects usually require slightly different components. So try not to save every item and think you can use it for next time. By not getting your money back you are practically throwing it away.

    The first place to look is in the home; can any of these materials be put to use elsewhere?  Or may you could use the leftover paint in the kitchen or bathroom rather than buying a new color? If you do not think you will use them, definitely take them for the local recycling center we mention earlier.
