My Confession: I Hate Used Clothing

I grew up in an environment where it was considered an insult to buy used clothing or receive hand me downs.

I know it's messed up, but am I the only one that feels this way?

I don't but when people give me used clothing I can't help but feel insulted and I know I shouldn't. I usually just end up giving them away.

I actually find this sad.  My kids think of it better than Christmas when they get hand me downs and I am able to buy them all their clothing.

An insult to me, like they're trying to imply I can't afford clothing. I really don't get why I feel that way either.

I don't really like used clothing either. It's just a personal preference.

Who gives you used clothes? How about a 'no thank you'... That usually works.
