I know several people who try to stick to the “buy one, donate one” philosophy when it comes to buying new clothes. When you buy a new piece of clothing, you should find one in your closet to donate. Not only does it keep your closet from getting cramped, but it is obviously helping out someone in need as well. I definitely need to do a better job sticking to this plan.
Or take this one step further and actually buy an inexpensive item to donate. With the awesome Sears Outlet Free Apparel Tuesday offers and using coupons on clearance items at Target, you certainly could find a nice item to pass on to someone who doesn’t have the resources to take advantage of the deal themselves.
