The Spouse directed me to this Planet Money podcast about where t-shirts go when they die, aka when you donate them to a thrift store but nobody buys them. That sounds real sad, but fear not–some of them get a really interesting afterlife!
The t-shirt Planet Money made for the original “Life of a T-Shirt” podcast. I’m scratching my head just like you are.
Have a great weekend, Thrifters! Check back next week for a little South Georgia thrifting coming to you from the Americus Salvation Army.

My t-shirts die when I wear holes in them to the point I can’t go out of the house in them. (I still have a nightshirt from when I was 8.) Then they become dusting/paint rags!
I have a shirt from 8 too! It’s one of my favorites. I tend to use old underwear as dusting/auto/paint rags…TMI?? :)
