Spring cleaning is rarely fun but usually rewarding, who doesn't love a clean room? Here are some ideas to organize your closet.
1. Get rid of everything you haven't worn in the past year. Are you really going to wear that tee shirt you bought two years ago because you fell in love with it at the store, but haven't worn it since? Probably not. Get rid of it.
Some ways to ditch unwanted clothes:
- Give them to charity such as salvation army. Salvation army is a great choice because you help someone in need out. Find a Salvation Army here.
- Sell them to a resale shop. At Plato's Closet you get cash on the spot, the downside is that they don't always accept clothes. When they are accepting they are very picky, don't pay much for clothes, and usually take over an hour to sort through the clothes. Find a Plato's Closet here.
- Have a clothes swap with all of your friends. Go to someones house and have everyone bring some pieces of clothing that they are just tired of. It's a good excuse for a party and a free and easy way to switch up your wardrobe.
