repurposedSUGGESTION...Old Blueprints.  "Typical design or construction projects still generate millions of sheets of paper plans usually bundled 50-200 sheets.  The heavy paper is a fantastic wrapping material for moving, much better than paper sold for the purpose." - Steve Dietrich  RE: Steve, Awesome "repurpose!.  Interesting how many byproducts and waste, like the blue prints you mention, have Attributes,Characteristics, Engineering that are equal to or exceed that of new products.  You just have to think resourcefully.

Q:  Like Steve's blueprints idea, do you have other smart "repurpose" ideas?

footNOTES
repurposedSMARTS...Mini Storage Units.   "Damon, I saw this outside Belle Fourche, SD and thought of you guys and the great work you're doing.  A guy cut big oil storage tanks in half and cut out doors on the ends.  Saw this mini storage set-up using them, and I also saw these on several farms around the area for storage." - Tim Schuh   Hey, real estate investors, imagine the return on investment when your building costs are so low!  We love resourceful, enterprising folks.  We bet that mini storage owner was a "Millionaire Next Door"...a classic book if you haven't read it.  (NOTE: Most would have simply, and sadly, cut these tanks up for scrap metal.  Certainly, this resourceful entrepreneur found a much higher and better use for these tanks!)
