Never buy new!

Adriene Hill Dec 2, 2010

Except for my white cotton underpants that I buy at Target I buy all my clothes, most of my furniture and jewelry, etc. at thrift stores, garage sales, rumage sales, etc. And, when I no longer want something I donate it back to a non-profit thrift store unless it is in really bad shape in which case I reuse as a cleaning rag.
