Debt-Free for the Holidays: Holiday Recycling

DEBT-FREE FOR THE HOLIDAYS

What’s Holiday Recycling? It’s a term I’m using to explain how to save a lot of money on holiday gifts by recycling what you already own. Here’s how I did it: My dad got a new phone and gave me the old one to recycle or sell on ebay.

I'm Not as Cool as I Thought I Was Last Week

It’s true — my coolness has been completely botched.

I’ve always loved shopping at thrift stores. I’ve purchased a few new things in my life, however the main focus has always been on second-hand. I love finding that diamond in the rough, and you can’t beat the price. Most importantly though, I’ve always seen it as an under-acknowledged form of recycling and I feel good knowing I’m not contributing to new clothes being made.
