Why not just mend it

This bag broke when I was in Bucharest. H&M bag 10 euros. I liked it. Spring colour. Yes, I really liked it. However, the straps got loose and I couldn’t use it any longer. I thought.  I even put it in the bin.

Then somebody said to me : Why are you throwing it away ? Why not just mend it ?

Yes, why not just mend it ?

Because it was “only 10 euros” ? Only 10 euros. Is that my perception of money and things?  Hm.

Well, somebody mend it for me and it looks like new.

Where did my reaction come from ?  Throwing away things instead of mending them ?

Did I forget about mending ?

The irony is that this happened in Romania and after we had delivered the donations to the children’s camp.

How was that possible ?
