I grew up with my mother (the most frugal person I know) who never stinted on underwear. That was the one item that was not passed down to my siblings. We always had nice underwear. Now, because I hate to throw anything away until it is in rags- so how do you recycle underwear?
I just found this organization Project Underwear– (www.projectunderwear.com) that will recycle your gently used underwear and give them to poor children in Third World Countries. Nicole Anderson doesn’t want money- she apparently on her trips distributes the underwear herself- cramming the underwear into her backpack. She only accepts underwear, bras and socks- no clothes- too bulky. Cheers to Nicole and I wish her the best of luck- and for those reading this post- check out the Project Underwear.
