Clothing, Bedding & Shoes
What is the best thing to do with them now?
- If they are torn, stained, worn out, dirty, wet or simply not fashionable, it is currently best to landfill them. SIGH.
- If they are in good condition and in style, please donate to one of the many charitable resale stores in the area for reuse!
