Waste or Cleanup? Which would you choose?

We all know that the economy is not a very ideal place for the consumer all the way up to the manufacturer these days.  So, everyone that I know as well as everyone that you know are probably trying to find ways to cut back on costs.  In recent years our economy has been a throw away society.  By this, I mean that we buy something and if it gets a tear, a stain, anything, we throw it away.  This is not the case anymore.  We all must find ways to cut back on costs. 

The example I personally have is with the carpet in my home.  I had friends over for a small party and a couple of them got out of control and spilled some red wine on my carpet.  Of course, I did not find the spills until the next morning.  So, luckily I have a product called Odor-Z-Way that I use to get almost any stain out of my carpet as well as odors.  I dampened the stain, put the Odor-Z-Way over the stain, and rubbed the Odor-Z-Way into the stain with my foot.  I then let the stain dry and vacuumed up the area as the directions said to do.  Guess what?  The stain was completely gone.  My point to this entire story is that I could have easily said that I didn’t want to mess with it and called the carpet cleaner up to come clean my carpets, or, if my pockets were deep enough, I could have ripped my carpet completely up and replaced it.  Either way I was going to spend way more money that what I did to clean one spot.  I think I spent $10.00, put minimal effort into cleaning the spot, and saved my carpet and money.  I have found many other uses that this product has saved me money on as well, but this was my most expensive savings story that I could possibly have had. 

This is why I ask the question waste or cleanup?  Would you rather spend $10.00 to save your carpet, clothing, etc., or spend $50, $100, $1,000, $5,000 to replace your carpet, shirt, etc.  I leave it to you to decide what you would do.
