Item 5: Broken Umbrella

Probably a good thing I own two others of these:


Even the husband with his mechanical engineering degree couldn't figure out how to fix this one.


The reckoning:

Cost:    $0, as it was used up and broken.

Fate:    In the trash, not to be replaced.

What convinced me to let it go?  Tomorrow's forecast for more rain.

Total $ wasted on junk so far this year: $13. 



  1. There's a USA group that take the fabric from the umbrellas to upcycle into cool stuff.

  2. That is BRILLIANT! (I'm almost looking forward to breaking my next umbrella now, but that wouldn't be eco-friendly!)

    Would you have any ideas where to send broken china in the states? We broke a really nice plate in our move and I'd like to see it put to good use. Thanks in advance!


Please be kind :o)
