In my small way I am attempting to recycle. No, I don't always save cereal boxes or newspapers, but I have found a way to recycle old clothing and fabric. I have found a great source for used clothing at two resale shops in my area. Clothing there sells for no more than $2.00 an article. The profits from these items goes to charity and I find gems. I constantly find name brand mens shirts for as little as $1.00.My husband is thrilled that I find golf polos that otherwise we could not afford. These sell retail for as much as $60.00. When I don't find great wearable clothing I usually look for zippers, buttons and fabric that is still usuable. Zippers sell retail for around $2.00 and buttons are even more expensive. Look for a dress with lots of buttons, zippers, or other embellishments.I purchase these for around $1.00 , I bring them home and take them apart.The fabric is sometimes salvaged for rugs or quilts. Plus sized full skirt have lots of usable fabric. There is a little effort involved but the savings in tremendous. I have also found you can get shirts at garage for as little as .25 and reuse the buttons. Can't find a card of buttons for .25 I bet.
