By purchasing better quality furnishings and classic styles, we reduce the amount of garbage going to landfill. Try to avoid purchasing home decor that will have a very short life, because they will break down, wear out, go out-of-style, or we’ll simply get tired of them. Remember, you get what you pay for in terms of quality. It’s true, things don’t last forever, but good quality will last longer. And if you do get tired of something, you’ll be able to sell it or pass it on to someone else, instead of throwing it out.
