you are going to grow out of some beloved and well worn clothes on your journey. reuse them in the form of creating blankets and pillows instead of giving them away or stacking them up in the closet (which gives you the option of wearing them again which you don't want!)
you can use a sewing machine or sew by hand. you can also preserve the life of some clothes by taking them in at the seams if you find you are growing out of things too quickly, it keeps you from purchasing all new stuff every size. busy hands can't put food in your mouth ;)

I have a daily flip calendar on my desk. At the end of the year when I replace the old pages with the new, I clip the old ones together and use them as a note pad on my desk for miscellaneous notes, calls, numbers, whatever. It saves me from using new note pads!
Recycling is good - recycling before recycling is even better 224
One quick way to save some cash is to recycle your old ink cartridges, printers, computers, etc. for cash towards your next purchase. For instance, Staples gives $2 staples rewards for each recycled ink cartridge. HP will issue cash/credit for recycled printers, computers, etc. What a great way to help the environment, as well as save you some money!
