The year is about to end...gathered all my old clothes from the closet and sorted them out, as I wanted to donate them to a NGO who would pass it on to the needy I spotted 3 old denims of me and my sister...instead of giving them away, I had to use my scissors for good. Two of them whose waist size is fine, were cut into Capris while the other one is cut and stitched to make designer door mats...a good way to start the weekend!!

When I was growing up I wore a lot of jeans and I always got good wear from the cut off shorts too. It was the days when holes in the pants of jeans were not in fashion. If it had been different I would have saved a lot of money on fashionable jeans with holes in the knees

That's good. We should donate our things , at least which we feel have become useless for us.
