De-Cluttering vs Repurposing

Instead of de-cluttering,  we are  keeping certain things we will not use, with the plan of repurposing them.   We are trying to decrease spending, so repurposing what we have makes sense.  Yes, it will take up space and time, but that should be offset by the money we will save.

We have already de-cluttered  large toys and books, so we have some space to keep the clothing/sheets we want to repurpose.  The sewing machine is set up in  corner, ready to go.

Some projects are using an old sheet to mend a broken dust ruffle,sewing rags, kids shorts/pajamas, and stuffed animals from old clothes, and mending clothes.

Are there any items you are repurposing instead of tossing?
