Repair something. Find something that is broken that can't be used anymore. Not an electrical appliance or a clothing item, but a piece of furniture, or a kitchen utensil, or a suitcase or simple tool, like a rake. The kind of thing that you would usually throw out when it breaks. Imagine that you cannot easily get another one. Now repair it. Make it completely usable again. In fact, make it stronger and better than it was before....

This recent charge on Learning to Love You More encourages appreciation of everyday objects and making the most of what you have. The site periodically posts new "assignments" from readers and accepts documentation from others on their completion of the task. This task, Repair something, is a beautiful one about utility and frugality.

A few other assignments relate to home nuisances (Record the sound that is keeping you awake), cleaning (Take a flash photo under your bed):

...and seeing familiar household items anew (Make an exhibition of the art in your parent's house):

Check out Learning to Love You More to see responses to each assignment and post your own.
