This week for Thrifty Green Thursday I thought I would just share a quick tip in case not everybody already does this. To keep your scissors, knives, saws, mower blades and anything else with a blade in good working condition for a long, long time get them sharpened regularly.
My Dad does that as his profession and he can make something that hardly worked into something that works great. A good sharp tool is such a joy to work with compared to a dull one! So next time your scissors doesn't work well, don't go buy a new one instead sharpen the old one. To find sharpeners use your yellow pages, google it or ask at a hardware store or lumberyard. I think sharpening is usually pretty economical (at least at my dad's place it is! Especially for me since he does it free!).You can also sharpen your own knives and scissors if you have a stone and know how.
