OLD VS NEW

YOU (South Africa) - - SAY -

I’m an el­derly lady on a small pen­sion. I can’t af­ford to buy new clothes but I have sev­eral rather old gar­ments – some more than 10 years old – that I still wear of­ten. It seems that clothes made years ago wear bet­ter than the modern ones, no mat­ter how much you pay for them.

If I go out in a nice out­fit I change into my “house clothes” as soon as I get home, and this goes a long way in pre­serv­ing their good qual­ity.

What I find dif­fi­cult to de­clut­ter is sen­ti­men­tal stuff, such as pretty birth­day cards and or­na­ments my chil­dren gave me as young­sters.

I en­joy YOU ev­ery week and swop it with my neigh­bour for a dozen eggs! EGG LADY, EMAIL
