While I wouldn't have the first clue as to how to render the most use out of a buffalo, or how to repair a broken appliance, I have figured out how to make the most use out of one thing--the t-shirt. Imagine with me if you will...
|I am so wishing this were my shirt right now...|
You purchase your shirt. It's beautiful, unblemished, everything you would hope a t-shirt could be. Until you drip marinara all across your stomach or rip a hole in the bottom while trying to tuck it in. In disappointment you throw it out or you could...
Begin wearing said shirt under sweaters or as a night shirt. While it can't be displayed in public, it is still good for warmth or use in the privacy of your own home. Until...
Said shirt is now so utterly stained, holey, shrunken, etc. that it is no longer justifiable to wear. What to do? Cut it into rags. Don't forget to save the seams for tying up tomato vines and the like. And then?
Your tshirt rags are now so thin/disgusting/stained that they cannot be used. Simply throw them in the compost pile. They'll decompose in due time & nothing is wasted.
Feel free to skip step two if you'd like. Either way, t-shirts really lend themselves to a long life span & I know that for most of my life I wasn't using them to their full potential.
Not exactly the same as the buffalo...but close.
