eco ring

eco ring For the past two Sundays, we've visited a recycle shop called Eco Ring.

In the past, I've written about recycle shops, here and here. They've refused some items, and they usually buy things from you for super cheap.

Eco Ring on the other hand are unlike those shops, as long as it isn't food or medication, they buy it.

Last Sunday, we brought a couple of things that our printer "used to use"...ink, cards and photo paper...this got us 10 yen...whoo!

And a Louis Vuitton paper bag...5 yen.

Yup, they even buy brand name paper bags and boxes!

This weekend, Satoshi went through his things and gave up his golf clubs, as well as some bags and other items.

I gave up some make-up bags, as well as some small items like watches, sunglasses and costume jewelry.

We figured we could at least get 200 yen for everything and were shocked when the woman working there gave us 2500 yen!

I think we are done cleaning our clutter for this year, but now we know where to bring stuff to be recycled.
