I used the recent Black Fri to hit my local good will. Yep, they had a sale too. I was after lots and lots of blue jeans to make a rag rug out of. They were on sale for $1.50 to 2.00 a pair and now I know where all those "mom" jeans go!
Side note.... the "mom jeans" actually fit...i am always tugging at my low rider new style jeans and now my mid rider skinny leg jeans... fashion is questionable sometimes?
I decided to put together a box for each of my family members they could put in the attic and forget... full off clothes. Reality is, in a crisis you really arent' going to start spinning your own yarn or tanning hides unless you have to...
So.. the list is.
- 10 pairs of jeans
- 10 sweatshirts
- 10 shirts
- two jackets
- A few pairs of used tennis shoes on the bottom
- A sewing kit
- I asked my dad to buy everyone a new pair of boots, a bag of socks and underwear as his part of the gift tp go into the box.
My Total cost... 3.00 for the tub, 25. for the clothes from Goodwill, 2.50 for the sewing kit. My dad's was higher! Put a dryer lint cloth in to keep things smelling fresh and forget about the box... hopefully you will never need it.
