The Rise of Repairs
Life in 2022 is getting more expensive every day. Rising inflation is making it harder for regular people to buy new things. To save money, some people are choosing to repair their old stuff instead of replacing it. In addition to saving some cash, people can experience a satisfying feeling when fixing broken items on their own. Financial benefits aren’t the only reason why people are handling repairs at home. Many people now realize that buying new things all the time is bad for the environment.

About 60% of the U.S. population faced some sort of winter weather advisory or warning, and temperatures plummeted drastically below normal from east of the Rocky Mountains to the Appalachians, the National Weather Service said.
“In some areas, being outdoors could lead to frostbite in minutes," it said. (AP)
