    Happy to have learned the fundamentals of used clothing instead of buying new clothes! I am convinced that shopping at flea markets is a form of recycling!

    Can't wait to get started! I tried to choose challenges that could be incorporated into my daily activities and didn't take up too much time. We will see how this goes!
