I have always liked recycling old things. Part of it is because of the good it does to the environment. And part of it is because it motivates me to do my own research and create something out of what would otherwise be a waste.
My house is stuffed with old possessions. At times, I feel that it is more like a museum of memorabilia than a residence. I admit that I have played a role in making it thus. Sadly, it has been a significant one.
With my (soon to end) flexible schedule, I have made some headway in recycling some of my old t shirts and dresses. With help from instructables, I converted them to tote bags.
