- Ice grabbers (a reader said they’re really sugar cube grabbers)
- Tennyson poetry book
- 3 handkerchiefs (which I’ll use to wrap gifts in)
- Men’s leather belt
- J. Crew khaki men’s shorts
- Nike basketball shorts
- Old Navy women’s trousers
- Gap women’s jeans
- Adidas women’s yoga pants
- Banana Republic women’s tank
- Women’s blouse with floral print
- Women’s cotton plaid skirt
- Women’s wool plaid skirt (I’m using the fabric)
- Mat for framing/picture project
- 4 loaf pans (for gift giving and baking in the holiday season)
- 2 pinch bowls
- Ikea wall bracket (I’m using it to fix a bathroom soap fixture)
- Outdoor chair (which I gave to our neighbors and now they have 8, matching chairs)
The grand total for all of this? $18.20
All of the clothing was in really good condition and was promptly placed in the washing machine, even the wool plaid skirt. Since I’m making a pillow cover out of the wool plaid fabric and not wearing it as a skirt, I skipped the dry cleaner.
All in all, this was a good day at “The Bins.” Please consider wearing used clothing. It’s much less cost on a household budget, is good for our environment, and is very stylishly frugal. Or should I say…Very Go Gingham!
Do you buy used clothing? Are you a thrifty shopper, too? What’s your best find?
