Day 25/30 Less Waste Challenge: Buy Second Hand
Today's post keep in the same theme as the last 2. Now that you are making better purchases and you are making less of them, consider another option that uses up the existing stuff we have instead of creating new! I used to think going to second hand stores was only something you did for funny occasions like, bowling, ugly Christmas sweaters, themed parties, and the like. I donate to them all the time. Why I thought there would be no nice clothes is just beyond me. It's true that it tastes time to sort through all of the items. It's also difficult to know what they will have so sometimes you can't get something you need that day (crazy, right?). You can find a LOT of great stuff shopping at thrift stores. There are clothes, housewares, silverware, pots and pans, picture frames, books, furniture, kids stuff ranging from furniture, toys, to clothes. Thrift stores are such a great option because if you need something for a short period of time (like kids' clothes) then you can make a cheaper purchase and then can bring it back for someone to enjoy. There's also a lot of high older stuff that is still good quality. Cookware is such a great thing to find. They has cast iron skillets, crockpots, stainless steel pots and pans and other really great stuff. You never know what you might find!
