Have it All: The 2 Reason Rule and Recycling Your Stained Clothes with Tie Dye

Some of you may remember my post about organizing clothes for success and quick everyday use. Here are some pics of the results and some info on the 2 Reason Rule.

  After organizing all my clothes and making a pile of stained stuff that I did not want to part with, I decided to separate the stained clothes into 2 piles. One for tie dying, and one for doing galaxy prints.  This way I get to have fun and be crafty and save some stained clothes from the dump.

This is an excellent example of what I like to call the 2 reason rule. Basically, I find that if I have 2 reasons to do anything then I am much more likely to actually do it. It is the perfect combination of multi-tasking and motivation that I find is necessary if you are going to have it all.

I realize after the fact I should do before and after for the satined clothes so you can see how they looked, but most of them came out pretty great. I love these overalls; I used a basic spatter dying technique and added more teal later. I used some darker tan colors on the shirts to cover the stains, an I think the striped collar one came out the best.

Let me know your thoughts and ideas on tie dying, recycling, and if you find the 2 Reason Rule works for you.
