I have been collecting used clothing and furniture as a way to save money and help the environment. I started collecting used furniture after I lost my house and needed to furnish my new place. I did not have money to buy new furniture so I went to yard sales, thrift stores and estate sales. I furnished my whole house with used furniture but when people came to my house they thought that I had money because my furniture looked very expensive. I started helping other families do the same thing. I started collecting used stuff to help ohters but I had to stop collecting as I run out of space. I do not have money to rent a place and everyday I am thinking of how I can help so many families that are struggling to get by. My dream is to open a thrift store so that I can continue recycling and helping others. I eventually would like to help people in Africa.
