Buying clothes isn’t a problem for most people, but getting rid of them can be tough. Some of us throw clothes away without a care in the world. But why would you do such a thing? There are some simple ways you can clean out your closet without the guilt. Here are some tips for how to get rid of your unwanted clothing:
Give Them To Second Hand Stores
People love to shop, but hate paying the full retail price. Second hand stores like Goodwill resell inspected clothing at discounted prices. You can even get a tax write-off from these shops. Just be sure to keep the receipt! Other second hand stores include Savers, the Salvation Army and many more. Search for a store in your area.
ReInvent Your Clothes
DIY projects can help you turn old rags into something new. All you need is a sewing machine, the right piece of clothing, and a vision. You can turn that pair of over-sized jeans into a tote bag, or use an old pocketbook to help you create some fashionable glasses. I made this pair with an old pocketbook, a brooch, and safety glasses. You can create anything with your imagination.
Donate To A Local Shelter
Donating unwanted clothing to shelters is a great way to give back to those who are trying to get back on their feet. Plus, helping out those in need gives you the benefit of knowing you put a smile on someone’s face. Every shelter is different, so call and inquire about donations.
Resell Them online
If you’d rather get more bang for your buck, you can resell unwanted clothing on the internet using sites like eBay. Just take some nice photos of your items, create your account, and post the item. Just be sure to sell your clothes for a reasonable price. If selling your stuff online isn’t your thing, then have a yard sale! Ask your friends if they have anything that they want to get rid of. Plan a date, set the prices, and bust out some refreshments. This way you can get more customers, generate some buzz, and make more money!
