Pleather Shorts – Three WaysPosted: May 5, 2012
When you commit to reducing your waste your shopping habits tend to be one of the first things to change. The first time I watched the story of stuff my immediate proclimation was:
“I’M NEVER BUYING ANYTHING AGAIN”
For ME, that was not sustainable for many reasons, I enjoy clothes for one. BUT I knew the way I shopped needed to change. Currently about 85% of what I purchase is used. For clothes that can mean consignment stores, Buffalo Exchange, Goodwill, Salvation Army, Thrift, Vintage and much more. I also shop, and therefore buy, MUCH less now, so I try to do a “Three Ways” list in my head before buying.
For example, my $16 pleather shorts from Buffalo Exchange.
To the park with kids:
Make the stuff you buy and already have work triple time, in buying less I’ve found I have a lot MORE to wear!
