I would partly wrap one blanket around another, then partly wrapping the second with yet another, and progressing each time with another blanket until all 24 blankets are used up. Then I would tuck end of the last blanket into the first, thereby inventing the first fleece clangbird. Why? Because I have 24 blankets with no other conceivable use.
I’m glad to see all the “give them to someone who needs them” responses. I saw this offer and thought immediately about our group that goes to the homeless camps under the bridges of Pittsburgh. We took out boxes of sweatshirts and undies last month (along with lunches and water), and with cold weather rolling in these would be pretty crucial.
@enville in the weeks following Y2K, my local supermarket had these emergency survival packs that they had been selling for $60 for $5. Each pack contained one of those silver space blankets, warm gloves, chemical hand warmers, water purification tablets, 5 MRE type meals, dry shampoo, and a few other things that I don’t recall to “make survival possible without utilities”. I bought all of them and had a good time handing them out to the homeless throughout the rest of the winter.
I give them to the homeless as blankets but I also will cut them into 6" wide strips to make scarves out of them to give to the homeless too. On a 50x60 blanket you get 6 scarves for $2.50. Not a bad deal at all!!! This is a MehHOO!! Deal!! :
@emt305 the idea to give them to an animal shelter is superior, imho. or families/seniors in need that have a home. a tiny lightweight blanket isn’t going to do much for a homeless person in a cold climate.
