Retail Therapy? March 13, 2010

After a tumultuous seven weeks, today was the first day I didn’t have to be anywhere or have anything that absolutely had to be done. That’s not to say that I didn’t have things which needed to be done — there’s always the house which needs to be cleaned – and it’s getting deep even for me — but I couldn’t sit still and didn’t want to stay home. Ultimately, I got out and headed to one of the thrift shops (then came back and napped).

I’ve been resisting shopping for thrift shirts, but today was the day. The store had a sale — all yellow tag clothes 5 for $5. Pictured above are 9 of the items I bought today, a few shirts which I bought last summer and a couple I’ve been given. The tenth item from today is a ladies Christmas jumper which I hope to recover enough fabric for a border on a Christmas quilt I’m working on.

So now I’ve got questions:

  • After I cut up my shirts/shirts  Bonnie Hunter style, do I mix it in my bin with the rest of my pre-cut fabric, or do I start a new bin for pre-cut shirts?
  • How do I count this fabric for my weekly stash report?
  • Do I count the fabric in my husband’s old shirts when I pull them out of the “outgrown” closet and add them to my stash?

I’d love to hear how you handle your thrift store finds.
