What are the top reasons your closets are a mess?
1) You just don't make the time to go through them.
2) You have sentimental value attached to items.
3) You spent a lot of money on clothes & feel bad getting rid of them.
4) You no longer fit into them and hope to one day.
Which is your reason?
Imagine if you opened your closet, to only see clothing that you loved, fit you, was seasonal and appropriate to wear to your everyday activities. What would happen then?
When you open your closet, you would actually have something to wear!
The charity perspective and the environmental impact are two important things to help switch your mindset.
Any career appropriate attire can be donated to charities such as Bottomless Closet orDress for Success. If you are no longer wearing these items, you should feel good to donate to someone who can truly use and appreciate them and may not be able to afford otherwise.
Other non-career clothing can be donated for a cause. For instance, The Fashion Foundation uses profits from clothing to purchase school supplies for underprivileged kids (and they pick up too.)
For personal gain, clothing can be donated for a tax deduction, sold on-line or placed under consignment.
If clothing is no longer wearable, if it is stained, ripped, piling or otherwise, you can help the environment by donating it to a place that will recycle it. Uniqlo and H&M have drop off stations at their stores that will do this.
