Call me cheap (I prefer smart and thrifty), but I have a hard time throwing anything away I can recycle, repurpose or reuse.
I grew up with a Mom who actually darned socks, so I come by it honestly.
My daughter sleeps on cuddly flannel sheets and when the elastic on the fitted sheet wore out, rather than throw it away, I chose to repurpose it into extra pillowcases.
I got 4 "new" pillowcases out of one twin sheet.
I'm thinking flannel pj's out of the flat sheet.
What do you think?
