Garbage In, Treasure Out 

While it's embarrassingly easy to pop into the ol' Target whenever you have a household need, that's not the most economically responsible or conscientious way to beautify your abode. Even if you have made reusing goods a priority and spend time bargain-hunting at thrift stores and garage sales, you still have to purchase your goodies at these shops before you can cart them home. Jenny Murphy of Perennial offers up a better way to dress your digs. At DIY Demo: STL Trash Talk, she'll share how you can help divert usable items from landfills and where you can look for fabulous free furniture and other delightful discarded items. She's got the inside scoop on the city's bulk trash pickups, after all, and she's an expert fixer-upper. To hear her thoughtful, sustainable vision and to develop the same, head to Perennial (7413-15 South Broadway; 314-832-2288 or at 11 a.m. for the hourlong talk; a donation of $5 is suggested to listen and learn.
