Green Kitchen: Repurpose old t-shirts, and save trees!
Probably understandable for someone who used to work in fashion, Im a bit of a clotheshorse. My boyfriend, even more so. Which is all fine and well, except that our tiny, er, bijoux London flat doesnt have a lot of storage. Two small closets in the bedroom is it, and you try fitting luggage, a vacuum cleaner, laundry basket, multiple outdoor coats, boots and regular everyday clothes in there without going crazy.
Luckily, I am not one who likes to hang on to stuff, and about twice a year, I ruthlessly go through all my clothes, shoes and accessories, and purge as necessary. Anything that is worn out, doesnt fit or flatter, or that I havent worn in six months goes. Items still in good condition go the charity shop around the corner, and everything else gets recycled or tossed. (I try to avoid throwing textiles in the trash, but come on, taking your old bras to the recycling centre is just plain weird.)0
