I’ve started small on our ‘war on waste’ journey. Carrying a keep cup, using stainless steel refillable coffee pods, refusing plastic and unnecessary packaging, cold wash cycles and making use of the soft plastic recycling. The next thing I want to tackle is clothing.
I am starting with myself and plan to go as long as possible without buying any brand new clothes. If I need something I will head to Vinnies, Goodwill or The Smith Family and buy second hand.
This is today’s Goodwill haul at their end of year sale.
- Black puffer vest, Witchery
- White and black stripe turtle neck top, Seed Heritage
- Black tie top, Witchery
- Black wool knit sweater, Country Road
- Black zip up jacket, Witchery
Total = $14.50
About 50% of my wardrobe has been thrifted over the years but this is probably my best haul yet as far as value for money goes.
Where are the best thrift shops in Sydney? I have a few local ones near me but they aren’t the best as far as selection goes. My local Vinnies children’s section is literally a box on the floor 🙄 and this particular Vinnies shop prices damaged second hand clothes almost double the price of similar items brand new at Kmart or Target so I am desperate for some tips!
