I need help with my decluttering. We are doing the world's slowest move, which is great for decluttering. I have a printer paper box stuffed full of pantyhose. Most of them are still in the original packaging. I haven't worn pantyhose in the last year. But they are in the original packaging, and they weren't cheap. Opinion?
I've found with mine--which I grant you were certainly the cheap kind when I bought them--that the elastic breaks down, or something, as they get older, even if I haven't been wearing them. I had to wear some the other day, first time in years, and was shocked at how bad they were--I never would have kept them if they'd been that bad last time I wore them, so they must have deteriorated in the interim. Might be worth opening a couple of packages just to check that.
Also, check for avant-garde craft stores in your area. Okay, that sounded weird.
But the other day in my town I found a store that has EVERYTHING, neatly organized, for crafts and other creative inspiration: bits of yarn and fabric, pop tabs, bowling statues that have been divided into parts (base, column, topper), glazed tiles, bubble wrap, those plastic rings that six-packs of pop cans come in, used notebooks, literally bits of plastic flotsam divided by color... They would probably love old pantyhose, even if it wasn't in great condition anymore, because people could use it creatively somehow instead of wearing it. If they came in the eggs they would definitely love those!!
