taking care of what we have so that it lasts for when we need it.
Elders always stress the importance they placed on taking good care of tools and resources so that they were available when needed.
This is good stewardship, but also part of planning ahead which we can follow or copy.
What are some things that may need maintenance or care to last a long time?
Putting things away when they are not in use
Saving money for repairs
Using items carefully so they don't wear out quickly
Check regularly for damages and repair them before using again
Some of the costs of maintaining our resources might need to be built into your budget.
