What are your reasons for joining the fixer movement?

Don't know that it's a *movement,* per se, but the idea of extending the life of things rather than stuffing Mother Earth with more trash is extremely appealing to me. It pains me every time I throw something away. Recycling makes me feel only mildly better.

Do you have fixer skills? I.e., ability to fix appliances, cameras, bikes, etc...

No. But I have a critical mass of things I've felt too guilty to throw out and the pile is reaching overwhelming proportions. Perhaps this group can offer some guidance/relief.

Do you have things that need small fixes to work again?

Well, that's the thing. I don't know whether the fixes are small (but I just don't have the skills), whether they're small but would require the acquisition of additional materials/parts/ingredients/elements to repair; or whether the fix is a major one.

Introduction

Like the intent of this group.
