👚👖 We all have clothes in our homes that aren’t worn anymore:
👕 Outgrown kid things
💃Sizes we are no longer fit into
👘Styles we don’t enjoy wearing
👢“Mistakes” such as wrong size bought
🥿items that Match Nothing
👕 Clothing that is Itchy, Rides Up, Rolls Down, and Other Annoyances
All these clothes TAKE UP VALUABLE SPACE in your closet. If you aren’t wearing them it’s time to remove them from your closet and your home.
Have a box for giveaways and another for trash. Refer to The Illustrated Guide to Donating Used Clothing for what is donatable and what goes into the used clothing receptacle http://bit.ly/2P56VJe.
🛍Start with one drawer at a time so you don’t get overwhelmed. Sort: keep, donate, trash
♻️Last step is to get the donatables out of your home. Do it ASAP! If you have a thrift store that can pick up call them to schedule a pickup. If you have a car, load up and drop off before the weekend. For me, I do by foot with my stroller to one of the neighborhood second-hand establishements.
THIS LAST STEP IS CRUCIAL IF YOU WANT TO DECLUTTER THIS CLOTHING FROM YOUR HOME.
You will be thrilled to have the extra space. Someone will be thrilled to purchase your donations. And you’re saving the planet at the same time by keeping usable items out of the landfill. It’s a WIN-WIN.
