Clothing for me personally...not my whole family. I have 4 suits for workdays. When I am home I have 4 pair of sweatpants plus p.j. pants. Because the hubby hates to see me in these to go out, I have 2 pair of jeans. About a dozen socks which are pitched if they get thread bare or a hole. Under clothing is replaced in a similar manner.
Also, recycling clothing to Salvation Army. They help the community in a number of ways.
If there is a favorite piece of clothing that one does not want to get rid of I will cut it up to use in a patchwork quilt for them. Old jeans that cannot be donated because of stains or holes...the back of the legs are usually in fine shape and can be cut up for a jean rag quilt or to make my own green grocery bags. Atleast try to recycle before getting rid of something.
