Pronunciation: A·sah shim·mush ho·zer
Literal translation: Reuse
Israelis are big on reusing items and furniture. There are a ton of buy, sell, swap groups on Facebook designated by area. On top of that, it's a part of Israeli life to instead of dumping a piece of furniture at the garbage dump, most people leave it on the side of the road so someone else can pick it up if they like. For roommates and young couples this is a way that many people outfit their apartments when moving.
