RE-scuing the dumped and discarded as opposed to the donated is where we are focused. We rummage through a lot of dirty and smelly stuff that is not sorted, yes undies included. It has been literally dumped and most of it is poor quality. However some pieces have potential certainly for around the house and town.
The outfit I am wearing in the Retire at Fifty post below is totally scavenged and the skirt was refashioned. The shoes are Italian made and soft leather.
You can Beat the Man if you responsibly source your clothes secondhand. By this I mean don’t go purchasing stuff just because it is cheap. Ask yourself do I really need it.
