1. Donate to charity. Clothing that’s in decent condition can always be found a new wearer at shelters, Goodwill or other charitable organizations.
2. Send it to school. Recyclebanker Lizette A. pointed out that preschools and elementary schools are often in need of “backup clothes” for kids who spill on their clothes or have an accident. The art teacher might be able to use larger T-shirts or button-down shirts as smocks for students to use while painting.
3. Sew a quilt. For t-shirts with cute sayings, shirts or dresses with neat patterns, or particularly memorable and special outfits, cut out squares of fabric and turn them into a quilt that you can use in your child’s room as a throw blanket or a wall hanging.
