Reduce Reuse Recycle
I’ve been going around the apartment (the Classically Evil space more so than others) and finding that I have a lot of stuff that I just don’t use and it’s taking up space. Normally what I do is donate it all to charity. When I was living up in Los Angeles I would donate it to Out of the Closet. Unfortunately, I have moved and there are none, but there is a very convenient Goodwill truck that is pretty good. I’m noticing that I have a lot of t-shirts that I don’t really wear anymore, a pair of jeans that is about to rip apart, beads, copper wire, all kinds of fabric, and a few bags filled with stuff that I just don’t know what it is.
So I have decided that instead of just donating to charity (not that it’s a bad thing, I am a huge donator), I thought that I would try to reuse as many of these items as possible and create new things with them. Here are a few links that I’ve been checking out lately:

Copper Wire & Beads: http://www.ehow.com/search.html?rs=2&s=Jewelry+Wire&skin=corporate&t=all
Just a few ideas I was batting around. I’ve got to see what other crazy things I have around here. I’ll keep my weekend full, that’s for sure. In the very near future I plan on putting up some of the pictures from what I’ve been reusing. I’ll also be going through a step-by-step process for some of the cooler stuff. If anyone has any great websites or cool ideas that they’ve been working on, I’d love to see it! Cheers!
