I'm very much a believer in recycling. Most of my clothing comes from thrift shops in the first place, then I regularly pass them on to the Diabetes clothing crew for further recycling.
I do the same thing. Money is tight, but I'm not much of a shopper to start with. I seem to always say, "it's good enough for around the house", or "I can get another year out of this." Even when I do go through my things I don't want to wear anymore, I first keep what I can alter to make something else out of, the ones that have good fabric for a quilt, the the ones that are good for making rag rugs, then the ones that I want to make rags for cleaning, etc.
Money is not tight for us but I am the type of person who likes to get the good out of things. Also, I find that my older broken-in, comfy clothes are my favorites anyway. Hey, as long as they still fit and are in decent shape, then I keep and keep wearing!
