Also giving to charity is a great feeling. Whilst the latest trend from Topshop is great to have, the garment will soon become obsolete and so many products that are thrown out immediately go to landfill. Giving to charity is a form of primary recycling but it also helps contribute to charity shops such as Cancer Research and Oxfam. You don’t know how much of a difference giving your old goods to charities makes and it’s a great feeling knowing you are helping raise money in a form that isn’t always obvious.
If you don’t find anything the first time, try again. Charity shops are full of bizarre mundane pieces but they’re also full of treasures; you just have to hunt. It’s also a form of cheap entertainment, I could spend hours browsing various charity shops and even if I do buy something chances are it cost over £10.
