Don't Throw Away Those Scraps

If you own your own home as I do, then you understand the importance of having a selection of building materials on hand at all times.  Whenever you take on a project, order a couple more of everything you get such as lumber, concrete mix, bricks, you name it.  Also, you want to keep all the end cuts and leftovers you can.  These come in handy later on for the weekend-fix-it-upper stuff that we all have to take care of.  More often than not, these small projects require small bits of lumber, or 3 bricks, or even a small mix of concrete.  So find a place in the shed or workshop to keep all those odds & ends.  You never know when they will come in handy....even if you just want to build a birdhouse with the kids.
