Repairs more costly than replacement?!

July 23, 2008

We don’t make things that last and we don’t make things easy to fix.  I got my green geek on and decided to fix, not replace, my broken shovel.  Getting a metal replacement handle was my only option, but it cost nearly as much ($15) a whole new plastic handle shovel ($20).  Replacing it took about 10 minutes.

The other shovel I bought only came with a plastic handle.

New shovel handle, not a new shovel
