I think thrift stores including Goodwill, boutique resale shops, and consignment shops (like Plato's Closet) are a great way to recycle things you don't use anymore! Donate, sell, or consign the clothing and other items your family no longer wants - it helps the environment! Buy clothing, household items, books, and furniture at these stores to save money!
