5. Get what you need from thrift store(s), donation, friends/neighbors or swap.
first good reason for doing it is reusing whatever it is that is still
good to be used and save those that otherwise got thrown away and fill
up the waste mountain. However you need to be
selective, get good quality of clothes and product. Household stuff can
be very useful too. The fun thing of shopping at a thrift store is you
can find all various kinds of
style. As a person with small size body, it's easier to find the
right size at a thrift store rather than at a commercial dept
store. especially in America where many people are commonly big.
good reason is if you are bored with your clothes, or if your clothes get
stained or damaged, you won't feel so bad to toss it away because you
didn't pay so much for it in the first place.
might also want to watch out for some stuff put out (for recycle) by
your neighbor(s) or
other people (in the neighborhoods). Many people put out what they
don't need in their front public lawn (many with a note that it's free
-- that means
anyone can take it). A dresser, an air conditioning unit, a humidifier,
or even a table or a kettle. Many are still nice, some you can fix and
make them like new
again. It might not feel like much, but if you don't need to buy
for many things you need, you can save quite a lot. My husband is very
good in fixing stuff, and we like reusing stuff. So many of our
furnitures are actually from used goods that have been fixed or just
Craigstlist or Recycle Group is a good alternative to look for used or inexpensive stuff. From a pickling jars to a
couch or bed sometimes. Though for the last two things, you have to be
careful. Make sure they come from a clean home that have no bedbugs! If
you are allergic to pets, make sure they come from a no-pet home.
