What do you do with your old clothes? Do you hand it down to your younger brother or sister? Do you donate it in charity?

My mother works with a ladry who has a couple of daughters who are my age. When I am finished with something that is still in really good condition, when I clean out my closet and find something I no longer need, I give it to my mother to give to her colleague, who appreciates them very very much. Her daughters are raving about some t-shirts I gave them, last week.

That's very good of you s_accent. At least the old clothes that you have can still be useful for them

I'll either donate my clothes to charity or sell the ones that are in good shape. We have this great consignment store that will buy or trade you clothes that are still nice. It's great because I can take my clothes I never wear in and trade them for newer or newer to me clothes.

Seeing as I have an older brother, and he doesn't like my kind of clothes. I donate them to the Salvation Army thrift store, I love to donate what I can when I can!

Any clothes that I don't like anymore or clothes that don't fit properly or something anyone in the house does not want for whatever reason we give to someone we know that might want them , everything else we give to the diabeties association . It is easy to donate to them as they will come right to the house and pick it up or there is a drop off spot not far up the road from me . Anything that is stained or of no use to anyone , I cut up for rags for cleaning for around the house as we are always looking for something to clean up spills or just to wipe something off and don't want to ruin a good cloth .

I usually give them away if they are still in good condition and if they're not, then I dump them. In regards to my sons clothes, I'm sending them to my sister who has a four year old boy as well but he is a lot smaller than my son, so most of the clothes i'm sending him will fit him well.

I usually throw them away or keep them for rags, because I wear them until they are rags. I am one that buys my kids clothes over myself, so I rarely get new stuff.

If my old clothes do no longer fit to me as I'm growing stouter, I give them to my relatives or to whoever has a need for them especially the poor people around and also to charity organizations especially when there are calamities.

It depends on what they look like when I am ready to get rid of them- If they are sweatshirts or t-shirts I usually cut them up and my sig. other uses as grease rags in the garage—or we use them as cleaning cloths (dusting, scrubbing walls, etc.)- If they are still in good shape but I don’t want them- I take to a local drop box- the clothes go in the US to needy families. I usually always drop off winter items (coats, snow pants, etc.) My daughter when she outgrows her clothes- I usually send the nice ones to my brother- His daughter is smaller and she loves this. My daughter marks some and tries to sell them at yard sales- We have 1 each year with 3 friends. The money she makes for her items (clothes, toys, books) she gets to keep. The rest we drop off in the local drop box.

When they get old I wear them for work, then when they get to old for that I use them for rags all the best urban

Believe t or not iI keep some of it. Mostly are from the 70's and some bluejeans that I can't fit into it but hopefully to lose some weight and wear them again. Some clothes I do give it to Goodwill but lot of tehm I keep. I just can't seem to let them go because they are my favorites.
