I like popcorn, and since it is a fairly healthy snack, I eat it quite a bit. Several years ago, my grandmother bought me an air popper. This air popper has withstood weekly use for several years. A few weeks ago, it stopped working and we had to get rid of it.
Instead of automatically getting a new one, I went online and tracked down a way to pop popcorn in the pan - you know, the old fashioned way. ;) It is fairly easy (especially because my hubby makes it for me) and delicious.
I still think I'd like a new air popper, but I am hoping to "use what we have" until my birthday or Christmas when I'm hoping I will get a new one.
I have been trying to employ the "use what you have" philosophy for clothing as well lately, but that will be a separate post coming soon.
How often do you "use what you have" instead of going out and buying something new?
