Wazzup folks. Good day to all. Well when I'm preparing myself in going to work my I noticed a pair of leather shoes that looks familiar.I get it in the shoe rack then try to wear it,and it fitted. My mother came and tell me that it was mine.She got in the room when she was cleaning and realized that it was mine that I didn't used for a quite long period of time.It's been a long time since I used leather shoes at work. Here I am now at work using an old leather shoes that was keep for over a long period of time.Thanks to my mom for finding and cleaning it..... Do you still used old stuff that you are not using for quite long period of time?

That's good for you Ardoy. At least, it still fits you and is of classical style maybe. As for me, i would always give away shoes that i don't wear anymore. I don't want so much unused stuff in the house. Besides, i would like it to be given away while it's usable so others can enjoy wearing it also.

Correct! At least you have an alternative wear to work, because it is advised that we should wear different type of shoes everyday. That way, our feet doesn't form callousses ( don't know the spelling, but in filipino "kalyo )from wearing the same shoes everyday.

I use old stuff too if I find some. I'm always glad if I find old shoes or clothes that I forgot, because sometimes I'm in a need of a new one, but can't afford to buy it. The new shoes I buy usually don't last for more than a year or two... while I got some old ones that still don't look bad at all, and after many years they are still shoes. Maybe I look a bit old fashioned in them, but I don't care.

Yeah and it also depends on the way you carry it no matter how old it is.

There were some old clothes in the closet that I still wear. I wear them at home so that they can be of use. There were some notebooks and school supplies that I recycle so that I can still use them. This helps me save a lot of money and not spend extra.

That sounds like a great find. I love when that happens you put something away and forget about it and then you find it again and its such an awesome surprise. I was just thinking today that I hope I didnt throw my old shoes away because I need them for when I mow the lawn. I like a seperate old pair for that or it gets my good shoes all stained up.

Oh yes as long as it still fits me and feel comfortable in wearing, I will. At least we can save instead buying another pair or if we'll buy another nice to have additional pairs for us to wear.
