Shopping at Thrift Stores Recylcing Clothing

dkbergen

Buying clothing and other items from Thrift Stores is a great way to recycle, save money and give to people and organizations in need.

I agree! I love shopping at thrift stores. I'm always on the lookout for antique-y sweaters (i've score a few cashmere ones in the past). I also like to look at the housewares and pick up things for the kitchen, like baking dishes as well as linens, tablecloths and the like. If you give it all a good scrub and wash in hot water it's just like new at a fraction of the cost!
