    Substitutionary Thinking #1.  So, much of "repurposing" is just about finding a lesser priced product/material with the same Attributes, Characteristics, and Engineering at a lesser cost.  This candy example, below, is a great illustration.  

    Candy Example:  If you like Payday candy bars, you can simply buy and mix Candy Corns and Spanish Peanuts together for the same great taste at a fraction of the cost.  The Candy Corn is "repurposed" as the Nougat.  (If you like Baby Ruth candy bars, just add chocolate chips to the above mix.) 

    Q:  Like our candy example, do you have a substitutionary scenario that has save you money?
