Mend and Make Do - South Grafton & Yamba

So we have a few motto's in this group;

1. You might be poor BUT there really is no need to slum it.

2. When you look at an item don't ask 'What is it used for?' ask 'What can I use it for?"

3. Op shopping is essential;

it provides a recycle/upcycle centre reducing our impact on the environment from the constant manufacture of 'new' things, and reduces the rampant consumerism and keeping up with the Jones' mentality we seem to have slipped into as a society.

it enables many desperately worthwhile NGO's and NFP's to raise funds to fill the gaps in the social infrastructure provided/funded by Government Organisations.

it enables you to save money and to better spread your thin financial resources around the essentials : i.e. Electricity, food etc.

NEW MEMBERS TO OUR GROUP PLEASE GO TO THE PHOTO'S TAB AND INTO THE ALBUMS .... EVERYTHING WE POST HERE GETS SORTED INTO ALBUMS BASED ON THE ISSUES/TOPICS THE POST RELATES TOO.

I endeavour to update the albums as frequently as I can with all the new post information.

I have decided that as I add everyone's ideas from the wall to our photo albums I will delete the wall post ... don't panic if your post to the wall disappears, it means I've filed it in the albums. The group is getting so busy with amazing ideas I need a way to keep track of them, if I delete the wall posts after adding the information or idea to an album then when I need to update ideas it will only be those on our wall that need filing that I'll have to deal with. Should have thought of this before! It takes some time to go through our wall posts now, checking if I've already filed and idea or if ideas you post are double up! I'll get our group sorted soon! Learning new ways with FB every day.
